Overview of Papillote Tropical Gardens

Founded in 1969 by Anne Jno Baptiste and Burl Grey, Papillote Tropical Gardens is located east of the village of Trafalgar in the foothills of Morne Micotrin on the Nature Island of Dominica.

Perched on a steep, rain-forested mountain slope a thousand feet above the sea, the 14-acre grounds of Papillote Tropical Gardens include 4 acres of developed trails, two waterfalls and natural volcanic hot mineral springs and bathing pools.

Completely demolished by Hurricane David in 1979, the gardens of Papillote (pronounced PAP-ee-ott) have since been re-established as one of the most impressive botanical collections in the region, with more than 100 genera represented by over 600 individual species.

The gardens continue to be a 'work in progress,' developed, nurtured and enhanced by its founder.

Check out our latest video short that winds and weaves through a small slice of our rainforest paradise and you'll understand why we like it here. - Courtesy of

Kian R. wrote about Whale Submarine:

"The Whale submarine was a great alternative for us as non-divers who wanted to go beyond snorkelling. It offers a boat transfer from the jetty in Male straight to its platform and fits around 50 people. The downside: Located in close proximity to Male's harbour, a lot of boat traffic occurs around the site and making it obviously not to have as much sea-life as we expected. The plus: driving in a submarine is already an experience in itself. The windows are big enough to capture fishes and corals from different angels.
