diving in tobago

I need advice about diving in Speyside in mid July. Although an experienced diver I prefer gentle relaxing dives. Is it too windy for good visibility and are many divesites out of bounds due to bad weather. I've heard the dive centre at Manta Lodge is good.

If you want a private, low fee, relaxed instructor who will take you out... Go to Speyside... ask for Kevin the diver. You will be pointed in the right direction. Tell him Robyn from Ontario sent you. He'll take good care of you!

I just got back from diving in Speyside at Manta Lodge. There is a lot of current on the dive sites. Most of the time it was going against rather than with us so be prepared for hard work. The visibility was very good though - no problems there. I'd recommend taking your own kit if you have it - there were a lot of problems with people who hired kit over there.

The diving on this side of Tobago is influenced by it's location - it's where the Atlantic ocean meets the Caribbean sea. Gentle, relaxing isn't typical in these waters which provide more drift dives. You're more likely to find gentle and relaxing dives in the south-west coast.
