The Tobago Cays were just great!!
To be honest, we went to the Grenadines to see the Tobago Cays and they sure do not disappoint.
We took a Catamaran over there- which stopped between Petit Bateau and Petit Rameau so we could have lunch on the Cat and walk over Petit Bateau and snorkel on the other side. It was wonderful. The waters between (and around) these 2 Cays had a number of yachts and sailboats, catamarans, etc. It is a popular spot. No wonder!
The snorkelling off of Petit Bateau was really nice, crystal clear water and everything was alive. The Cat moved over off of Petit Rameau and we swam there where the turtles mainly were. Saw a small shark also (picture posted). The turtles were slow, gentle, and not to worried about our presence; it was really nice to see them in their natural habitat, not with someone on the Cat feeding them to attract. They were just living their lives.
One really neat thing we thought was special was to see the living conch on the bottom - alive. People kill and eat so usually you see shells everywhere so it was a treat to get to see them (for once!!). :)
Going here just made the whole trip. We'd love love to go back. We were there about 3 hours, but it was too short!
A special place.
Highly recommend not to miss if you are in the Grenadines- it is well worth the trip!
