      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 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.  


      You should plan to fly into Tobago (TAB) on Sunday, June 16.  There is a direct flight on Sundays from JFK to Tobago (TAB) starting at $550. We would strongly suggest this flight! You can fly home at any time on June 23. Please email or call the shop before booking your flight!

      Blue Planet is a different kind of scuba diving organization — aimed at providing the best education and experiences to divers in the Washington, DC area and beyond, while harnessing the excitement and adventure of scuba diving to help protect our fragile oceans.


      Had an amazing time! Beautiful accommodations and resort staff. Magnificent dive sites and of course well executed by the Blue Planet Staff. Already have my next dive trip lined up with Blue Planet!

      Amazing second trip with Blue Planet Scuba! Bonaire is a unique adventure, whether we dove off the boats, or from the shore. I hope to do it again. As someone who'd been certified in scuba for about a year, and had done only a few dives at Lake Phoenix over the summer, this was a big step up in terms of experience. Andrea and Travis were both excellent instructors. I took the Advanced Opened Water course on the trip, and while that was good, I feel like what really advanced my skills was the variety of challenging experiences Bonaire had to offer, and the generally excellent divers I had the opportunity to team up with both on training dives and when left to our own devices, rolling around the desert in our little Taliban trucks. The East Coast Dives excursion was amazing, and challenged my bravery as much as much as my dive skills. While we didn't get to witness coral spawning due to a jellyfish hazard, the bioluminescent ostracod dive was absolutely magical, and the night dives in general were wonderful. All in all, a wonderful learning opportunity for me, and a challenging adventure. Thank you for the opportunity.

      The diving was amazing, and I never got tired of heading over to Bloody Bay Wall! The resort accommodations and food were great! The staff are awesome! Another exceptional Blue Planet trip in the books! 🩵

      Thanks Elsbeth! It really was some awesome diving and the resort and staff of Little Cayman Beach Resort were amazing. Hope to see you on another trip again soon!

      Second trip with Blue Planet. Wonderful time again. Really wonderful group of people, and the dive shop where we went was equally great. Well organized both on the Blue Planet side and at the dive resort itself. Little Cayman is absolutely beautiful. Would go on another trip there again in the future.

      I had an excellent time on my June Certification Weekend in Cozumel. Suzanne and Michael were incredible instructors - knowledgeable, patient, efficient. I felt totally comfortable and prepared for anything by the time of my first certified dive.
      By Jonathan K for June Certification Weekend in Cozumel on Jun 27, 2023
      Thank you so much, Jonathan! Your attentiveness and ability to adapt to our constantly shifting schedules made it a true pleasure working with you. We can't wait to join you on a future trip!
