    no place like this.
    you are required to pay like 5 bucks for a life jacket - we got the half jacket, get a full. The tubes looked fun but where do you stash for your waterfall photo? You cannot touch the ground in the gorge and walls are slick, so get a good lifejacket to buoy you for photos. Bring or purchase a sealable, collapsable camera case there. We were there with about 8-10 others and got photos by ourselves.

    You need to try this to believe it!
    Just an amazing place to discover. The water is not very cold, despite a first impression. Still, you need to be a decent swimmer if you want to pass the gorges to the fall, as the water stream is quite strong, and you need first to swim against it, and than to avoid nasty collisions with the rocks on your way back. Quite an unique place worldwide!

    Titou Gorge…..A. M. A. Z. I. N. G.
    The trip through the Gorge was so worth it. I can be a little claustrophobic but never felt uncomfortable swimming to the waterfall and back. The water is cold but not numbing. It was so worth it. See the blue skies above framed with the lush tropical plants was beautiful and the water fall at the end is so powerful. Of course, seeing the location from a scene from the Pirates of the Carribean was an added bonus!!!

What an amazing experience. The water is crystal clear and cold. The swim up the gorge was easy. The waterfall at the end is beautiful. This is not to be missed if in DOMINICA.

A must do! Swim in the refreshing water thru tall slot canyons to a waterfall.
So fun and very stunningly beautiful.
Everyone doing this had a smile on their faces. This experience obviously made everyone happy.

The NUMBER ONE MUST DO for water experience on Dominica.

You will rent a life jacket and swim upstream into a cavern. Current can be strong at certain points and some slippery footing. All the way in you stand under a beautiful waterfall. Perfect.

I recommend hiring a guide for the drive. Treacherous driving in the mountains and very little parking when you arrive.

Bring swim suit, towels and waterproof phone case for pictures. Changing rooms available.

My guide was DG tours for the day $250 for two adults. Visited 4 sites during the full day. You can catch him on Viator.

The canyon looks fascinating, definitely a once in a lifetime experience. Although it is a touristic spot, I’d say it is a place that shouldn’t be missed if you visit Dominica, as it is really a natural wonder. We didn’t take the best photos, as we were focused more on experiencing the place, but I would say it really looks and feels impressive.

Titou Gorge is a must do and one of the most beautiful spots in the already lovely island of Dominica. One part of the gorge is where they filmed Pirates of the Caribbean as Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom jumped in.

The swim up the short slot canyon took only moderate exertion, no problem for an average swimmer. The dozen senior adults in our group had no problem, and the staff are on hand to help you up the stone ledge to step into the final pool where the water fall is. And you are required to wear a float (ski belt) which makes it relaxing.

The water is cool, but really not that cold and you get used to it in a minute or less. It felt refreshing in fact.

You will need to get some sort of waterproof and floating housing for your smart phone however. You'd hate to drop it as parts of the swim are about 10 feet deep and with large smooth boulders at the bottom. But do take it!

Our trip combined the hot springs pools afterward, a short drive away. Perfect!

If you can avoid the crowds, this is a beautiful spot, so let the locals inform you when there are no cruises around

A must do excursion in Dominica! If you have a car, you can definitely drive up there and park very close to the entry point. Make sure to stop for some lunch at the cafe next door when you leave. Water is chilly but you get used to it. Definitely wear some water shoes so you can climb around near the waterfall inside.
