Trinidad and Tobago offers many experiences for the discerning scuba diver. Just north of Venezuela and south of Grenada, this modest island is home to just over 50,000 people. But, its small size belies its reputation for big diving.
With dive sites for every experience level, healthy reefs feature hard and soft coral and provide the chance to view some of the largest recorded brain coral in the world. Most dives are thrilling drifts fuelled by the nutrient-rich Guyana Current and offer the opportunity to swim with pelagics – a treat for even the most experienced diver.
Marine life is also varied and abundant, with macro photography being a favorite activity. On land, Tobago is a nature lover’s paradise with hiking through the forest and bird watching being popular with many visitors.
