Well worth the trip and the money. A must do for any visit. We all loved it and would travel to Tobago again just for this.

“Nylon pool do not take glass bottom boats or jet skis”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This is like water that you may mind in the south pacific. If your going there takes lots of sun screen and shirt and pants. Sun is ery hot. Do not take the glass bottom boats. They spend a maxium of 10 minutes in the pool. Take a kayak or canoe with anchor. While in the pool which is shallow bay on bucco reef the owner of the glass bottom boat touch my wifes bottom. I would not recommend letting your woman near the operators of the crafts. also I realized that many of the operators of the boats are stoned and drunk. None ofthe boats had life rafts and looked like they were going to sink. All the managers of jet skis are stoners and crazy rude. We actually saw two broken down in the pool that had to be towed. back. One person was charged forthe towing. Nice services not.

“Pleasant but over-rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

I was glad we made the trip to the Nylon Pool but, frankly it wasn't that spectacular. We enjoyed snorkelling at the reef and viewing the coral gardens on board the glass bottom boat but the Nylon Pool didn't really live up to the hype. Sure, it's cool to stand knee deep in the water that far from shore but that's really all there is to the experience. We only paid 60 TT for the entire excursion so we were glad to have experienced it once. We probably won't return the next time we're in Tobago.

One of the most picturesque places I've ever seen! Crystal blue water, white sands, sunshine... what else one needs! Would highly recommend! :)

“Nature at its best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We took a tour boat from buccoo reef to the nylon pool and no man's land. It was an awesome experience! Our captain, Handsome, was really informative and had a great sense of humour which made the trip even more fun. Even though my friends and i couldnt swim to save our lives he made sure we went into the nylon pool with us holding his hands the entire time. Beware though, the jelly fish aren't too friendly. After about ten minutes in the water we were forced to get back into the boat. The few stings were definitely worth it though!
