Please stay away from this tour company! The owner is Ronny, we thought we got a deal for $75/person but they are very inexperienced and give little information about the reef, etc. Our boat had over 50 people and they had 7 life jackets! I'm upset that the government would allow this. The boat driver crashed into the pier at... More

Unfortunately the reef is not healthy. There is still some fish but the condition of the reef was a disappointment.

Visit Tobago and especially Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool. Tours can be easily arranged and are very affordable. See some beautiful fishes and breathtaking corals. Don't remove of damage the corals. Tours begin at Store Bay or Pigeon Point. It is indeed a wonder of the world. Of course local dishes are available at Store Bay before or after your... More

The Reef is amazing to see. Lots of fish and coral. However I think over the years the corals have died due to mishandling by people standing on them and breaking them off. I think the locals are more aware of the issue now and try to prevent people from doing such. The glass bottom boat tours take you here... More

How to get there: - Did as part of a glass bottom boat 1/2 day tour from Store Bay (also available from Pigeon point) - So many companies offer to come here with a variety of options (whole/half day, with a barbeque/punch etc) - The cheapest option is to visit the a tour booth in Store bay that is run...

The nylon pool was great when we stopped to get in the water. Please get some crab and dumplings when you go to Tobago such a great dish. Please visit pigeon point beach also you would love it.

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
