Good trip

Not the most vast amount to see, but definitely a place to check out if your on a day boat trip, because each different sir has different things to see!

Didn't know such a tiny island was so rich in history. It was fascinating to learn how each Fort played such an important part in protecting Tobago.

I have already visited Buccoo Reef and it is such a lovely place. Before you can visit Buccoo Reef you can visit Cable Bay. Cable Bay is such a lovely and gorgeous bay.

At shore bay most glass bottom boats offer a tour to both the buccoo reef and nylon pool. The tour guides give great commentary throughout the tour, and the swim in the nylon pool culminates into a fantastic experience

Not very large or colourful, but great for those who have never seen a coral reef before. Should be included with Nylon Pool for best experience

We took a tour on "Power 2" which was a purple and green polka dot boat. I believe the captain was called Martineau (spelling?). The captain was very knowledgeable about the reef and wildlife and was very witty. The reef itself was impressive as was the nylon pool. We specifically wanted a boat without music and we got one but... More
