My family and I would definitely recommend this tour ! The service was honest , fun and friendly. This tour was definitely the highlight to our family trip to Tobago. We really enjoyed watching the sunset into the ocean while we enjoyed the warm clear waters of the nylon pool. Thank you Frankies tour for creating such a wonderful tour !

Having already been out with Frankies Boat trip on a previous visit to Tobago I was really looking forward to heading out for another day of fun and it never disappoints. The boat trip enables you to see the beaches from a different and very beautiful view. Nylon pool is a must see and perfect for photos as the water is very shallow. The staff are great fun and will answer any questions you have about the areas you travel through. Never failed to be a good trip on the 4 times I've taken part.

We had a fabulous trip out to Nylon Pool as the sun was setting. There was only one other boat out there and it felt like we had the sea to ourselves. The sun set, the stars came out and we headed off to a deeper part of the coastline where we swam in the dark with the bioluminescent plankton. Totally incredible. It was like the sea was full of glitter! Great host, wonderful trip, with food and drinks included. Thoroughly recommended!

First stop the socalled Coral Garden. Short explanation about what you see through the glass bottom. Strong swimmers allowed to snorkel (no fins onboard, masks/snorkels only) No guide going In with you, and you were not allowed to go further than a boy maybe 10 meters behind the boat) strong current when we were there.Some corals and fish, nothing which called for a «wow» Second stop Nylon Pool. Here you get off the boat to stand on a sandbar,, swim and play In the water. Or actually drink in the water. Our fellow travellers brought enormous amounts of rum and beer which they actually started drinking before even leaveing the pier. We disliked very much that there were some Jet skiers In the area , probably trying to sell a ride. Third and longest stop ;No mans land. Basically a few stands selling bbq fish, chicken, lobster And of course rhum punch. We did not enjoy this stop and would have preferred to spend more time at the sea. The boat is operated by one single person ( who did also have some rum!).

Thank you for your review, Because of the strong current we have to used the rope for your safety we keep it short to make sure you safe,all mask and snorkel are offer free and we do not provide fin on this trip. All of our guests are allowed to bring coolers on the glass bottom boat trips ,we are sorry about the jet ski but there are people personal water craft we has no control over them or there jetski , The tour is two and a half hours time is share between all the stop all our boat has two deck hand and a captain,We are sorry but this is what the trip offer maybe on the next time you can try a full day trip that offer a longer time .

We were sold a bbq tour and solicited as someone representing Frankie Tours. Even though it turned out that the person who sold the tour was not officially working for Frankie Tours they had no problem taking our money, transporting us to and from the boat and providing the tasteless lunch under the auspices of the Captain of the Frankie Tours boat.. On board the Frankie tours boat the Captain admitted that he had forgotten the ice and cups in his car that were provided by the person who sold us the tour. That same captain transported us to the Frankie Tours Boat and and kept swearing and speeding the entire time because he was 1/2 hour late by the time we arrived to begin the trip. The boat service was terrible, people kept asking for cups and ice and they just shrugged, there were not enough snorkels and masks were missing pieces and they offered no description of the places that we stopped. I later complained to a person who represented herself as Mrs Frankie and she seemed sympathetic took my contact details and said she would be calling to arrange either a refund of a portion of my $1500tt as I had paid ($500 per person for 3) or arrange for a complimentary tour on a different day. She never called. I called back the following day and she said that Frankie Tours were not responsible for any tours booked outside of their website.even though their captain picked us up and purchased our food and apologized for forgetting our ice and cups. Bottom line, when I purchase a ticket from a travel agent, he or she is not responsible for the service on board the plane/ship. This is the same principle that applies to Frankie Tours and any of their agents whether known or unknown. Frankie Tours will tell you that they are not responsible for whoever sells their tours, but they are responsible for the service they provide while on the boat. This company is a sham for what they represent in this beautiful island, and should be avoided at all cost and at any cost. I learned the hard way and paid a high cost for the lesson.

I am frankie and i am sorry for you experience ,But as you rightfully said we are not responsible for any person selling you a tour out side of frankie tours , because it it so easy for some person to sell you anytour put you on a boat and said it frankie tours , Or even put you on one of our boat we will never know what the transaction between you and your seller as you said we alway do our own beach bar que so seeing he has to purchase food mean it what we call a hatch job .anyhow still sorry about your experience and more sorry we have to take the bad name for it , but all the warnings are in place online and offline about outside booking. Frankie.
