“Lovely day when combined with a beach party on no mans land”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Have been on a boat trip several times to the nylon pool with Keith from A Team tours. It's lovely to jump into such shallow clear water to cool off. After the nylon pool we head to no mans land beach for a great barbecue and beach party with fab music and the rum punch flowing! Highly recommended.

“A Must see while in Tobago.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This area is really incredible. Its a must see as well while in Tobago. In the middle of the ocean, the water is just 3 or 4 feet in depth. Guys, you have got to visit

“Calm shallows off of Bon Accord”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Situated just off Bon Accord, this shallow area is great for bathing. It's about 2-3 feet deep with light currents. If bringing small kids, it's still best to have life jackets for them. Dependent on the time of year, the water will be clear or slightly murky due to the sand being churned up by the tides/currents. It's a soft sand bottom for the most part. Worth a visit if you're in Tobago as it's quite relaxing and worth many a photo. In terms of fees/getting there, you'll need to hire a boat and there are many to choose from. Have to agree with other reviewers that the vessel Sugar Lips is the best one. Sugar (his nickname) and Joelle are excellent guides with strong knowledge of the area and were very polite. The tour you take with local vessels usually includes snorkeling at nearby Buccoo Reef as well. If you have the time, definitely consider taking the tour to at least visit Nylon Pool.

“Totally in the middle of the ocean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We went on a glass bottom boat tour to the nylon pool and it was ok. We were with locals (family) who were our personal tour guides, so they really wanted us to see the nylon pool. The view is awesome but it was ruined by all the corals on the ocean floor. It literally felt like we were stepping on needles! Our personal tour guides said that there was a tsunami a couple of years ago that may have washed up all the corals from the ocean.

“"SUGAR LIPS" BOAT is BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

I read other reviews and most for this excursion were good ones, and YouTube has videos of this Sugar Lips boat. Although, all boats offer the same trip, the difference I found was the SERVICE. The captain of the boat goes by the name "Sugar Lips" also, and he provided my sister and I excellent service. I cannot imagine ANYONE on this island as being unfriendly, or inhumane let alone rude or dismissive as "Sugar Lips" was very attentive and professional. I recommend his services and he also gives TOURS of the Island, Lunch, Horse Back Riding, Jet Skis, and Assist in Exchanging Dollars and is incredibly knowledgable. Good Luck to you "Sugar Lips" and all the best you made our trip to Tobago very enjoyable and memorable.
