This is a small island northeast of Tobago and also know for bird sanctuary. But don't expect to see many birds here like the ASA Bird sanctuary in Trinidad. There's only a handful of birds and if you're lucky like us we saw motmot bird, laughing sea gull nesting, etc. This is an island with thick virgin forest and it's... More

A nice (if a bit rough) boat ride out to Little Tobago, you get a nice view of Tobago Island. The hike up the side of Little Tobago might be a bit steep for some, but won't be a problem if you're in shape. The viewpoint atop Little Tobago is a wonderful place to see seabirds. Although you get a... More

Took this trip with Peter Cox, being bird watchers it is a must trip to go on, even if the birds are not your thing it is still an experience with lots to see. On leaving Tobago to get to the island you go over the reef in the glass bottomed boat, where the captain explains everything you see and... More

Caught a ride on a glass bottom boat from Blue Waters Inn for just $150 TT which included a short tour of Little Tobago and snorkeling (gear provided by boat, no additiobal fee) on the reef directly in front of Little Tobago. A protected nature reserve, you ascend steps carved out of the jungle up to a point giving good... More

We were in Tobago in November 2013, so, to be fair, it WAS the rainy season with super-high humidity. While we were on the island there was no breeze at all, so we were dripping with sweat before even starting up the steep trail. We saw only one bird - underwhelming for sure.

We toured the island of Tobago with a guide and we had lunch at Jemma's Tree House which has an excellent view of Little Tobago. We were there to write an article on the destination for the magazine The Light Magazine. The restaurant has an excellent view of the island and we also visited Blue Waters Inn which also overlooks... More

We are keen birders, and loved our trip to little Tobago. A guide is definitely recommended. We went with Peter Cox Nature Tours, and I would highly recommend going with him if you are interested in wildlife. He was very professional and a nature enthusiast, and he even took us to see a bird we had never seen before (blue... More

We just turned up at the hotel looking to get onto a trip across to the island (they go at 14:00 according to the lady at the Bird Watchers restaurant), and were met by Jordan who got us on the right boat. The trip across was fast and not too bumpy although I understand others have had rough crossings. The... More

Took a glass bottom boat out to the island with birding guide, Newton George. Hike the island seeing all kinds of spectacular birds, many nesting. Came upon a pommerac tree with ripe fruit and enjoyed each juicy bite. A must see.

There is a lot to see on the air, land, and water, but you won't see nearly as much without a guide. The hiking was fun and we saw land crabs. The real draw was the bird life. Some of the bays are home to several varieties, including rare birds. Once we were done we went snorkeling in the calm... More
