The Indian River and Cabrits National Park Tour attempts to encapsulate
under one umbrella Village life, history and wildlife.
The route is along the island’s west coast, passing through several coastal villages
on the way to Portsmouth in the north of Dominica to visit the Cabrits National Park.

The Cabrits National Park is an eighteenth century garrison built
to protect the island from enemy invasion and attacks, both the British
and the French during their various stages of occupation made their
contributions to the development and enhancement of this garrison.

Located on a headland between Douglas Bay to the north and Prince Rupert Bay
to the south
The Cabrits Garrison stood watch over these bays, until it was abandoned
as a military fort in the 1850s.The forest took over and this great garrison succumbed
to the ravages of the years.Partial restorations began in the 1980s and The Cabrits
became a national park.Recent restorations under the supervision of local historian
Dr. Lennox Honychurch, has given a new look  to the Cabrits National park.
Several new trails have also been opened for more exploration of the park.

After the Cabrits we proceed to the Indian River

The Indian River which  flows into Prince Rupert’s Bay is the widest
river on the island.
We take a guided row boat trip up Indian River which is so called because
before the coming of
European Colonizers to Dominica, the Carib Indian  people lived along the banks
of this river and used it as an access route to the Caribbean Sea.

This is a very tranquil and relaxing trip as the row slowly glides up the river.
Your river guide will talk about the river, the intricately buttressed Mang trees
which dominate the river banks, and the birds which you will hear calling.
You may see an iguana scampering up or down a tree, sometimes even
an endangered parrot
may be seen flying overhead.You will have the option of sitting by the river bank
and enjoy a local lunch (highly recommended)After the Indian River return to base.
