As Pioneers of the Dive & Whale Watching industry in Dominica, we offer a full service PADI Dive facility. Our fleet consists of a dedicated dive vessel Domnik, a 30' custom boat which accommodates a maximum of 14 divers. Additionally we offer 2 other vessels which are used primarily for our Party Cruises and Whale Watching tours but can also accommodate larger dive groups; Passion, a 75' sailing Catamaran which accommodates up to a maximum of 54 passengers and Miser's Dream, a 60' powered Catamaran which is comfortably furnished for overnight island trips and can accommodate up to a maximum of 45 passengers. Our Whale Watching, diving and snorkeling tours depart several times a week.

We can boast the Caribbean's only Sperm Whale Skeleton mounted near our lounge where our guides hold educational talks and briefings for our whale watching tours. There are many activities available at The Anchorage from shore diving, snorkeling, fishing, and games for when you may need a 'wind down' from the Nature Hikes and many other land based activities we can organize for you.
