Visit Dominica from December to February, and join in on Carnival activities across the Nature Island. Also known as “The Real Mas,” the pre-Lenten festival includes festive parades, Junior Monarch (Calypso music competition for youngsters), Calypso Monarch, Queen Show, Princess Show, Teenage Pageant, Kiddies Carnival, and much more.
The excitement begins several weeks prior, rising to a fevered pitch before the finale on Feb. 16 & 17.
The Opening Parade in January marks the official start of the 2015 Carnival celebrations. While key Carnival events occur in the capital of Roseau, smaller carnivals are planned in villages such as Portsmouth, Marigot, and Grand Bay.
Visitors who want to enjoy The Dominica Carnival festivities during the weekend before the culmination on Feb. 16 & 17 should plan to arrive no later than Friday, Feb. 13.
Dominica is a truly special Caribbean sailing destination. The island’s unsurpassed natural beauty and the popularity of diving, hiking, and eco-tours – along with its rich culture and Carib Indian population – make Dominica an increasingly popular tourist destination. One of our most popular yacht charter itineraries is the 7-day sailing vacation from Dominica to Guadeloupe!
