    Tobago Scuba Diving

    Mantas? Heck, who needs to fly halfway around the world to Yap to see them? In Tobago drift diving predominates. You will find dive sites all over the island with drifts of varying intensity allowing both beginners and experienced divers to enjoy. The ones that will really enthrall are St. Giles, Speyside and Crown Point.

    "Tobago Scuba Diving"

    A bounty of reef life swarms in these warm, nutrient-rich waters. Scores of butterfly, queen angel, damsel and parrotfish dart by. Yet nothing can equal swimming side by side with the majestic, mysterious Manta Ray.

    Tobago offers the best of both worlds, Caribbean Sea diving on one coast and Atlantic diving on the other. Most of the diving done in Tobago are drift dives. Some of the diving can be done on the north east coast around Speyside and Batteaux Bay. Some of the famous dive spots include Manta City, Japanese Gardens, Keleston Drain, London Bridge, Blackjack Hole, Buccoo Reef, The Shallows, The Sisters, Paradise, Diver's Dream and Diver's Thirst.

    Dive Sites:

    Manta City
    Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

    This site needs no explanation as the name implies what's often found during this dive! MANTAS! Huge mantas frequent this site and they sure aren't afraid of divers! Actually, they seem inquisitive and seek out divers for some mid-day fun. If you run into those stealth bombers, don't yell or scream... hold your composure, swim slowly or just hover. If they're interested or in a playful mood, they'll approach you instead. That's your cue to a play session! Be gentle and no sudden movements!! Some folks are totally against physical interaction with wild animals but when you see these gentle giants, you'll be pleasantly surprised as they seem to beckon you for attention, interacting with divers sometimes for the entire duration of a single dive! There isn't a guarantee that you'll run into mantas as seasonal feeding grounds change during the year.

    Japanese Gardens
    Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate

    Japanese Gardens lies off the western tip of Goat Island. It's another ideal spot to see mantas! The surface is usually a bit choppy and there is a mild current on the bottom. At some points during the dive, you'll be picked up and "flown" around some of the bends. WILD! Lots of soft corals, sponges and huge vases abound this dive.

    Kelliston Drain
    Skill Level: Intermediate

    Kelliston Drain is noted for its famous brain coral. It is rated as the world's largest brain coral, measuring some 16ft wide and 12ft high! It's not uncommon to find nurse sharks and more mantas on this dive!

    London Bridge
    Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

    A natural arch that extends down 40ft underwater. Here the water creates a sort of venturi effect and whips you through the arch. On the other side, it's calm and filled with large pelagics. Expect to find schooling Tarpons in the 4ft-8ft range!

    The Sisters
    Skill Level: Intermediate to Advanced

    Here is a group of small islands off Bloody Bay. It's about a 45 minute boat ride out to the site in usually choppy waters. This is a wall dive and worth the time it takes to get there. It is NOT for the beginning diver as this dive usually has strong currents or surges.

    Blackjack Hole
    Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate

    Located on the southern wing of Little Tobago, this site is one of the loveliest in the area and abounds with photo opportunities. The currents are minimal so its easy to set up your shots of schooling purple & gold Creole Wrasse, huge Green Morays, the resident juvenile Black Tip Shark (if you're lucky) and of course the dozens of Black Durgons (Black Jacks).

    Book Ends
    Skill Level: Intermediate

    Book Ends lies just south of Little Tobago. At one part during the dive, you'll come up to some heavy wave action on the surface. The water is churned up and high with energy. From below, it takes on a cloudy look, much like storm clouds. Don't hold your breath when you run into the large school of HUGE tarpons drifting among the clouds.

    On all the dives, you're sure to be entertained by large PARROT FISH, TRUMPET FISH, JACKS and GROUPER. On some of the dive sites, you might run into large TARPONS, REEF SHARKS, EAGLE and MANTA RAYS. I've never seen such a diversity of fish-life in one area.

    Non-Diving Spouse Activities:
    Tobago is a good place to bring a spouse who is not a diver or water enthusiast. There are many topside activities to keep occupied and happy.

    While you are diving, non - divers in your group can enjoy a day at Pigeon Point Beach. At the heart of the Buccoo Reef National Park, Pigeon Point offers a day out in paradise. Snorkel or swim in the crystal clear water, relax under a palm tree, water kayak rentals, parasailing, golfing, shopping, jetskies, enjoy a West Indian lunch or take a cruise aboard one of the "day ships" or catamarans.
