We took a boat ride from Speyside all the way to Little Tobago with a guide. We explored the land and the guide told us history of this land and showed birds (even a bird nest where sea bird baby was!!) So relaxing and it was a great 3 hour trip.

We lunched in the hotel restaurant from where the boat departs. Went over in a glass bottom boat and saw wonderful coral and fish and a Hawksbill Turtle! There is a guided walk around the island - it's very hilly, so you need to be able to walk pretty well. Our knowledgeable guide showed us some great nature/birds. Take binoculars... More

Went on a birding trip with Peter Cox Tours and highly recommend his services. This a must see for any birder. Must go by boat and the road to the dock is very rough.

We were able to watch the Tropic Birds soar about with very close views. It was very interesting to watch the Frigate birds harass them for their food. Other birds such as the brown boobie and the red footed boobie were more distant although we had a pretty good look at the brown boobie on the boat ride over to... More

We visited here on a day trip, it was a very hot day and our guide took care to ensure we all had water for the climb, pointing out various birds along the way. He carried an excellent telescope so that we all had the opportunity to see nesting birds. We also snorkelled on Angel Reef, seeing a wide range... More

Me and my friend wanted to go on a glass bottom boat and do some snorkelling. We went with top ranking reef glass bottom boat with Randy as our tour guide (you can google to get more information about it) The trip was well over our expectations! We ended up on little Tobago and were well looked after by Randy.... More

We went out to Little Tobago on a rather stormy afternoon, but the Tropic birds made up for any weather. Swooping gracefully around the cliffs or sitting as tightly on their nests, they were an absolute joy to see. We got soaked on the way back, but who cares.

Booked the Tour from a small shop (blue building, Wordsworth Frank) in Speyside. We sailed out from Blue water hotel. Guide wa ved good and spotted birds and reptiles. He brought a good kikkertscope. The sailing Tour was short and relative calm. No sea-sickness! There is some climbing but the grandson, 3 1/2 year, managed without any problem up and... More

We visited Little Tobago with Randy (332-3216) on the Top Ranking Reef glass bottom boat. Randy knew his birds and when he realised he had 8 keen birdwatchers on board he extended his trip. He offered to take us down close to the Tropic bird nesting site where the tropic birds and boobies were flying close in, even closer that... More

The coastal birds were amazing. They hover about your eye level. The boat ride to the island is rocky. I did not know you could ride on the top deck until on the trip back, so that is my tip for those who get sea sick, because you will not be able to appreciate the glass bottom anyway. Easy to...
