Popular, and for a reason, Nylon pool is located within Buccoo Reef and is a fantastic place for snorkelling and swimming. A must do whilst in Tobago.

The tide level on that day was extremely low so the water was knee to waist high. It was great There were 3 boats in the pool at the time each playing their renditions of the local music. There was water and pop on the boat complimentary.

Put on your swimwear and get on one the glass bottom boats as soon as you get to Tobago. Seeing the coral reef is cool. Having the opportunity to snorkel (water was rough the day we went) is great. BUT, the craziest thing is swimming in the Nylon Pool. You're in the middle of the ocean, quite a distance from... More

Water was warm and found some rum. Take a ride from one of the local boats. This was pretty amazing because you standing in 2 foot of water and the bank or shoreline is about a mile away.

Take one of the many class bottom boats to the reef and nylon pool. The cost is only about $20 - 30 USD per person and you get to see the coral / fish from the boat. You can snorkel if you want to and then spend some time swimming at the nylon pool. Well worth it. We booked with... More

This is always a must-do when I visit Tobago! There is nothing like being out in the middle of the ocean yet in waist-high water.

The glass bottom boat ride out to the Nylon pool included viewing coral and fish. Very relaxing swim at the pool. Water is only 3' deep.

The clear and shallow water of the pool is amazing. However, the bottom is not all sand and some of the corals are sharp. Unfortunately the pool gets crowded from time to time. Lots of tourist standing in the water with their rhum punch, Carib or Stag. Even though it's claimed a scrub with sand from the pool makes you... More

The view from the Glass bottom boats is truly a wonder as only God could creative it. Some boats are double deckers and on the return voyage it turns into a party with music blaring. This take away from the atmosphere one had just experience especially the drop off at 'No Man's land' .

I liked the clear and shallow water of the Nylon Pool but there were too many tourists and boats. It is nothing great, I would not go back again. The best way to go and see it is with the jetski .
