Dive Fest Attracts Divers to Dominica Year Round
Dominica has been listed as one of the top dive destinations in the world, bringing more divers to the island, with the launching of the annual dive festival.
Mr. Simon Walsh, president of the Dominica Water Sports Association said that although there are not many international divers present during dive fest, the event has marketed Dominica as a top dive destination.
Mr. Walsh believes that the high cost of tickets during the summer may be one of the main constraints to divers who would like to participate in the water sporting event.
According to Walsh, Dominica is now well known in Europe as one of the top-ten dive destinations.
Mr. Walsh added that Dominica is no longer mistaken with the Dominican Republic because of the advertising that dive fest has afforded.
