First thing in the morning (after struggling to get a taxi, as we are located far from Roseau) we went to Anchorage Dive, for our first dive ever outside the BVI.

It was quite expensive, around 100$ each for 2 dives, but there was not much place available with other companies.

I can't recall the name of our first dive, but it was maybe 10 minutes away from Roseau on the boat. We dove next to a wall, going down to 2000 feet. It was quite different, and it is kind of scary not to see the bottom. We saw a turtle, some lobsters...

On the next dive, we went to Champagne, and it was awesome. You can see bubbles going up at some point, because of volcanic activity that imprison some gas a few thousand years ago (If I remember well...). The water was quite warm, and it was perfect as I was freezing down there (hard to believe in the Caribbean). We all put our hands on a spot for a few seconds where you could feel the REALLY hot water coming out.

Back to Anchorage Dive, our taxi driver was waiting for us. That's the only good thing about the taxi, they are so happy to make some money that they will wait for you any time. He took us to some local restaurant. An annoying thing about taxi drivers is that they expect that you will pay every thing to them. After we all order some food, and just sat down with us, leaving us with the bill!

He took us to Trafalgar Falls, 15 minutes away from Roseau (and just next to our hotel). Two beautiful falls where we relaxed a little. I went by myself swim under the closest one, which is kind of hard to reach if you don't have energy.

After we went back to the hotel, to get ready for the boiling lake hike...
