Indian River is one of the most popular touristic sites in Dominica. It is located just next to Portsmouth, to the south from town.
One needs to take a guide who rows a boat up the river. You can expect to see some mangrove swamps, mang trees and beautiful forest views on the riversides. There is a rum bar up in the river where a small pause is held before returning back.
The boat trip should also include a visit to some of the tributaries of the river, one of which has been a filming location for Pirates of the Caribbean 2 movie.
The river has got its name after Kalinago (Carib) Indians who used to have a village on its bank. When European came with their ships to the bay, the Indians used the river to come there by their canoes.
