Travel between Dominica and Guadeloupe

Hello,

How easy/manageable is it to travel between these two islands? We would love to visit both during an 8 day vacation (we are traveling from NYC) but are worried about the logistics, expense, and time involved. Would it be best to fly into Dominica and stay a few days, take a ferry to Guadeloupe and stay a few days, and then take a ferry back to Dominica for the last night and fly out of there the next day? Or would it be better to fly into Dominica and then fly out of Guadeloupe?

Also, we have been reading that the people of Guadeloupe can be quite rude, and that we will not be able to mange if we don't speak French (which we don't). Hopefully these things aren't completely true.

Thanks so much for any input!

The ferry between Guadeloupe and Portsmouth will be running again soon.

I teach voluntarily at a college for teens and they are taking 2 of our students so they ARE back.

It's a great journey and relatively cheap.

Best to fly from guadelope , which involves the inter island planes , they do not fly every day so check flights .

If you arrive at Guadelope , you will quickly want to move onto Dominica , be aware airport and landing are steep left hand approach over the hillsides , airport modern and the best fried chicken at the cafe just outside .

The inter island planes go on to Barbados and other islands if you fancy a day away from Dominica.

Dominica takes direct flights from the US , on a larger plane the landing must be equally interesting !

Welshtravelle...said there are direct flights from the U.S. to Dominica-I do believe that is not correct-American Eagle flys through Puerto Rico.

Puerto Rico is American soil. When entering PR from Dominica, you will be required to transit the US Federal Inspection Station. From there, flights to the US mainland are domestic flights, not international flights.

Commercial passenger flights into Dominica are limited. All originate on one of the islands of the Caribbean.
