We spent a couple of hours on Little Tobago as part of a day's bird-spotting with Newton George. An excellent spot to watch Magnificent Frigatebirds, Red-billed Tropicbirds and Laughing Gulls swooping and fighting over fish. The glass-bottomed boat trip across to the island allowed us to see coral, reef fish and a couple of turtles. Very enjoyable.

Our tour guide Randy was so excited for the tour it rubbed off on us! He was so sweet and careful getting on and off the boat and teaching us how to snorkel! He knows plenty about birds, plants and he even has some very funny stories about growing up on Tobago. We took a glass bottom boat and went... More

A private guide (Peter Cox) took us to Little Tobago on a glass bottom boat. While one person explored Little Tobago (birdwatcher) with the guide, the girls did some snorkeling right outside the island, another family member were diving with another crew. The birdwatcher was very happy with the visit to the island and saw birds that she wouldn’t see... More

The boats to Little Tobago left from our hotel so travel was easy. We went with Troy's boat as Randy had been recommended to us as a great birding guide. He gave excellent info as we sailed over the reef and disembarking the boat. Unfortunately the sea/waves didn't listen to him and it was quite 'hairy'. The birds were fantastic... More

I love Little Tobago. Its a small islet off the northeastern tip of Tobago and great as a day trip, about 1/2 hour by boat. There are a few slightly challenging walking trails to the cliff tops where seabirds can be viewed. Used to be the home of some birds of paradise, but alas no more.

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.
