The island is just 15 minutes boat ride from Speyside coast. The view of the islands around from the water is magnificent. Little Tobago is a very small island and its just a 15 minute easy hike up to the top. Once you get up there, the view is simply breathtaking. We saw some 200 tropical birds swarming around. Its...

If you're interested in eco tourism then this would be a great stop. The guide points out various birds and plants and spiders, some not seen anywhere else. They also give you the history of the Bird of Paradise which the island got its first name from. Great little hike.

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.
