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...

Scenic ride out in the dive boat - a wide range of excellent sites that mostly go down to 20+ m - all in near pristine condition with a wide range of beautiful corals, sponges etc and associated rich and diverse fish life, big green morays and lobsters that only come out to play at night! Little Tobago plunges down... More

We walked around the island looking for the elusive birds that Little Tobago is famous for, only to see 3 snakes (there weren't supposed to be snakes on the island, so we understood…!) Just across from Little Tobago is Goat Island, which is infamous as a former home of Bond creator Ian Flemming, however cording to a local dive operator... More

We went with Hans for an early morning bird/nature hike in the nature reserve, then zipped down to head out on a glass bottom boat to Little Tobago for more bird watching, nature hike, and scenery. Then we snorkeled and had a glass bottom boat tour. Finally an excellent lunch (organized by Hans) and a fun drive home with Hans... More

Tons of colorful birds and lizards. Mostly known for the sea birds, especially the red-footed boobies and birds of paradise

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
