    The 7-day quarantine as well as the two pcr tests are still valid except for the vaccinated (two days only). Good anchorage in the sand, a little mud and herbarium. Very comfortable. We anchored in 4 meters of water a little south of the restaurant bar Madiba. In front of this restaurant, there is a pontoon to put the annex. Possibility to fill up with water. It is very secure contrary to what some may say about Dominica. There is also Elvis a boat boy from the country association who makes security to watch the boats every night. The mooring sludge is three years old. They are in fairly good condition. We left our boat for three days on a buoy to visit the interior without worries. We must expect to be solicited several times to do all kinds of tours and also to the market. Restaurant in front of the very good country association.

    La quarantaine de 7 jours ainsi que les deux tests pcr sont toujours d'actualité sauf pour les vaccinés (deux jours seulement). Bon mouillage sur ancre dans sable un peu de vase et herbier. Très confortable. Nous avons mouillé dans 4 mètres d eau un peu au sud du restaurant bar madiba. Devant ce restaurant, il y a un ponton pour mettre l annexe. Possibilité de faire le plein d'eau. C'est très secure contrairement à ce que certains peuvent dire sur la Dominique. Il y a aussi Elvis un boat boy de l'association pays qui fait la sécurité pour surveiller les bateaux tous les soirs. Les boues d'amarrages ont trois ans. Elles sont en assez bon état. Nous avons laissé notre bateau trois jours sur une bouée pour visiter l'intérieur des terres sans soucis. Il faut s'attendre à se faire solliciter à plusieurs reprises pour faire des tours en tout genre et aussi au marché. Restaurant en face de l'association pays très bon.

    Arrived here at the end of April, pcr test on arrival + a week of quarantine on the boat (5 to 7 days) + pcr test € 30 + € 30 for tests + € 75 for the agent who does the clearance (mandatory) . Apparently you have to stay at the Portsmouth anchorage. everyone is welcoming, kind and happy to see tourists. Travel around the island by bus, stop or taxi very easily, great atmosphere, safe place, it feels good. We spent several evenings at La Cour Héritage in the city center, best local restaurant, reggae atmosphere, top welcome ...

    Arrivé ici fin avril, test pcr à l’arrivée + une semaine de quarantaine sur le bateau ( 5 à 7 jours ) + test pcr 30€+30€ pour les test +75€ pour l’agent qui fait la clearance (obligatoire ). Il faut apparement rester sur le mouillage de Portsmouth.. tout le monde est accueillant, gentil et ravi de voir des touristes. Parcourir l’île en bus , stop ou taxi très facilement, très bonne ambiance, endroit sur , on s’y sent bien. Nous avons passé plusieurs soirées chez La Cour Héritage dans le centre ville, meilleur resto local, ambiance reggae, accueil au top..

    We spent 2.5 weeks in this bay, with 8 days in quarantine. Great holding anchorage. We used Hubert with info@dominicayachtservices.com as an agent to enter and depart; he was helpful (75 USD) for assistance clearing in and out, scheduling PCR testing, plus scheduling excursions. Five days of quarantine was required with an initial PCR test prior to arrival or at 9 am day 1 after entering (40 USD at cruise terminal). Repeat testing on day 5 was required and we got our results in 48 hours. Avoid having day 5 testing on a Friday if you can as delays occur on weekends. If you need PCR testing for next island, aim to schedule 2 weeks in advance. We did not experience any annoying boat boys that were noted in the past. Dock at Indian River is much more secure than dock in NE bay because of swell, although for a restaurant visit, more options in NE bay. Favorite day excursion was canyoning with Natalie (www.canyoning-Dominica.com). Indian river tour with Alexis (1-767-615-8821) and scuba with Jorge at Seaquest were also great fun. Food shopping was best in Roseau. We rented a car. But there is also the bus (vans).
