This boat was overloaded, the Captain / tour guide was very rude and continuosly insulted passengers. They had snorkeling gear for about 20 people out off 130 passengers. They gave the snorkelers approximately 10 minutes and then they were rudely called back unto the boat. Note: Do not pay more than $75.00 for your boat trip. The barkers will say... More

Snokelling here is just as good as diving. Beautiful tree lined beaches but beware of the machineel apples, I was lucky having only taken a small bite and got away with diarrhea, just standing under the tree in rain can be dangerous. Whilst there is little to do in the village the goat racing course is not to be missed.

Driving into Crown in order to park to get onto a boat was a bit of an ordeal. We already had arrangements with the hotel we were staying in and so were looking for a particular person. As I pulled into park we were stopped by a large group of young men tapping on the window. Expecting to receive information... More

The reef is all it is cracked up to be. Such a shame if you are unable to snorkel because the marine life - coral and the fish are beautiful beyond belief. The colours are fantastic. You can wear a life vest and hold on to a rope if need be. I must have been the oldest by years. Getting... More

After having seen the herds of boast with live music and packed with people which come from Store Bay and Pigeon point I can only advise you: go to Buccoo village, 11.30 am. There is only one glassbottom boat from Christopher, for 20 Dollars a full two hours tour. Christopher has a lot of knowledge and takes you to the... More

In March 2014, a group of four family members and one friend visited Tobago. On Friday March 7, we ventured off to Store bay to access a boat to take us to Buccoo a Reef and Nylon Pool. Unaware of the official booth manned by the Trinidad and Tobago Tourist Authority, we headed to one of the many touts deceptively... More

Stopped here for some time to snorkel during a day out with Alibaba. Lots of things to see and for the first time ever we saw a family of cuttle fish all floating around together which was enchanting. The big ones were in a group and it was like the youngsters were all in a nursery! Lots of other fish... More

Check out Sunday evenings at Buccoo Reef. Great street food, party atmosphere, limbo dancers, steel pan and socca music, till late. Don't take valuables and a lot of cash but otherwise safe and great fun.

WellTraveled101 review was very helpful for where and how to purchase tickets. We went to the Trinidad and Tobago Tourist Authority booth at Store Bay. We paid $60TT (around $10US) each after being stopped by another guide quoting the cost of $120TT each. So glad I had read about the official booth! We got the Miss Ayana boat with Chile... More
