    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).

    We lived there, a month and a half at the anchorage of Portsmouth, during this very particular period of confinement. Good: excellent wetting and very good performance, sometimes a little rolling, however. Buoy not mandatory, but it's better. 150 EC per week. Excellent COUNTRY association which manages buoys, security, BBQs, provisions, excursions ... Market and small shops in town, restaurants on the beach. Great welcome from the people of Dominica, despite the circumstances ....

    Nous avons vécu là, un mois et demi au mouillage de Portsmouth, pendant cette période très particulière du confinement. Bon : mouillage excellent et de très bonne tenue, parfois un peu rouleur cependant. Bouée pas obligatoire, mais c'est mieux. 150 EC la semaine. Excellente association PAYS qui gère les bouées, la sécurité, les BBQ, l'avitaillement, les excursions... Marché et petits commerces en ville, restaus en bord de plage. Accueil formidable des gens de la Dominique, malgré les circonstances....

    We took a 12 € buoy to help, but we can also anchor. Personally I found the boat boys encountered quite in competition which does not give a good atmosphere, always this impression of passing for itinerant portfolios. Indian river 24 € / person Visit to the island at 4: 240 € Christophe's restaurant on the beach is very nice with Wi-Fi and pontoon.

    Nous avons pris une bouée 12 €, afin de contribuer mais on peut également mouiller. Personnellement j’ai trouvé les boats boys rencontrés assez en concurrence ce qui ne donne pas une bonne ambiance, toujours cette impression de passer pour des portefeuilles ambulants. Rivière indienne 24€/personne Visite de l’île à 4: 240€ Le restaurant de Christophe sur la plage est très sympa avec Wi-Fi et ponton.
