About this trip

Join Blue Planet for a week of world-class diving in Tobago. 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 hard and soft corals, macro critters and pelagics, there's something for everyone. Plus hiking, paddling, nesting sea turtles and more topside adventures!

Tobago

Tobago offers many experiences for the discriminating scuba diver. With dive sites for every experience level, the healthy reefs feature both hard and soft coral and provide the chance to view some of the largest recorded brain corals in the world. However, it isn’t just the reefs that drive divers to this location — the marine life is also varied and abundant, with macro photography being a favorite activity. There are also thrilling drift dives fueled by the nutrient-rich Guyana Current which offer the opportunity to swim with pelagics!

The Diving

Minimum dive certification/experience:  Better for experienced divers (Advanced Open Water Diver and up).  


From hawksbill turtles to moray eels, octopuses to eagle rays, divers can interact with more than 300 species of marine life. In addition to the more common fish life, divers can also spot rare dwarf angelfish such as the cherub and flameback. The big animals are also often out in force and can include schooling jacks, scalloped hammerhead sharks and manta rays.

Other Activities

On land, Tobago is a nature lover’s paradise with hiking through the forest and bird watching being popular with many visitors. You can also kite board, surf, wind surf, kayak or stand up paddle. We may be able to catch sea turtles nesting on the beach at night!

Coco Reef Tobago

Our hotel, Coco Reef, is situated on the beautiful southwestern coast of Tobago in the town of Crown Point.  Tranquil turquoise waters caress the white sands of their private beach with magnificent snorkeling just outside the breakwater. Enjoy kayaking, pedalos, tennis, gym, in-house shopping, massages, manicures, pedicures and much more.

We all enjoyed the trip. The dive crew was very well organized and great to dive with. The hotel that we stayed at was privately owned. The owners we very nice and responsive to needs. I Had never traveled with Blue Planet before. I found the group to be made up of great people. Very respectful of the differing skill level of the group. Their enjoyment of the dives as well as their respect for the environment was obvious. I plan to travel more with them in the future. Really relaxing week.
Had a great time with the crew from Blue Planet. Marin is the best! While the Hilton hotel (Resort,what a crock)was in a great location, the price they charged for breakfast is outrageous! 23 bucks what a rip off! Really ticked me off!!! Majority of the dive shop personal were very helpful,professional. Capt Scott a true professional in his briefings and handling the boat! Didn’t like how one dive guide was inattentive and basically lost the group, claiming we were “ ahead of her” . Overall Marin and the rest of the folks from Blue Planet made me feel right at home,
This was our first trip with Blue Planet, and we made a decision to join them any time we plan a dive trip. Everything was planned the best possible way and everyone was included the whole time. Both Josh and Michael are just amazing!!! We had the best dive experience !!! Thank you!
Another amazing trip with Blue Planet! Thanks so much to Marin for being an awesome trip leader. Can’t wait to go on our next adventure with Blue Planet!
Comfortable accommodations. Responsive staff and an excellent scuba operation.
