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 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!
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.
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!
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.
