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.

Amazing diving albeit chilly at times as expected. Guides knew exactly where to go and were extremely adept at spotting wildlife. Service was wonderful and organization was impeccable. Definitely a successful bucket-list dive trip. We’d highly recommend it to any keen and experienced divers.

An absolutely amazing archipelago like no other in the world, both top side and under water. Words and pictures will never do justice to this incredible bucket list destination. Heather and Jonas were fantastic leaders; caring, knowldegeable, always up beat, always thinking ahead, always putting the guests priorities ahead of their own...could not ask for more. Aggressor personnel were top notch. Overall an incredible experience from A to Z.

We are so happy you enjoyed the trip, David! On top of all of the incredible marine life we were able to see, it was fantastic to learn more about the islands' volcanic origins from you. We feel incredibly lucky that you joined us! :-) We can't wait to dive with you again!

This is my third Blue Planet trip, and I look forward to many more. Traveling during Covid involves changing restrictions and requirements- Blue Planet kept us updated and helped us manage our anxiety. The resort and dive operator were incredible. This is a regular feature of Blue Planet trips.

COVID-safe responsible travel is now possible and quite enjoyable! Blue Planet guided us through the enhanced testing, paperwork, and travel restrictions that protect both travelers and hosts, allowing us to support island communities and dive spectacular reefs. I have been reluctant to travel since March 2020 but as we all enter the “new normal” of covid and economic recovery, I am pleased to experience and highly recommend *responsible travel done safely* with Blue Planet.
By Heidi K for St Lucia! February 2021 on 22 Feb, 2021
We are so happy you could join us, Heidi! We are thrilled that everyone felt safe and enjoyed the trip. We're looking forward to many more dive adventures with you in the future!

Well organized, including from a CV19 safety perspective. Fun! I wasn't getting certified, but we had loads of wonderful dives. Turtles, Sharks, Scorpion Fish, all the tropicals, a wreck. It was wonderful to be diving again and have such splendid camaraderie after so many months of being dry at home. Plus, the Cenotes were breathtaking.
By Ren G for Certification Weekend in Mexico on 29 Jan, 2021
Hi Ren! We are so glad you had a wonderful time. It is always a pleasure to have you join us on trips. We are also incredibly happy that you felt safe and were very comfortable with our Covid-19 safety protocols. We hope to see you underwater again soon!
