“Blow you away! :)”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

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!

“Wow ! This place was worth the trip!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

I was deeply impressed with the view out over Lands End Reef after rounding Petite Bateau to enter the anchorage. Here you are surrounded by pristine beaches, accessible elevations and a beautiful reef not far to the east.

“Swimming with the turtles”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

A fantastic place to see the turtles swimming in their natural habitat, with areas protected which were their natural feeding and breeding grounds, also to add to this were the iguanas in their natural habitat and the big tortoise, some of our party went snorkelling and were overwhelmed with what they saw, one of the main things was the different colours of the fish and the amount of them.There small fee's to be paid to visit this attraction to which the rangers come around in a boat and collect.

“The #1 Spot in Windward Islands.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Tobago Cays is like nothing else in the Grenadines, the area is protected from the swell by the large 'horse shoe reef' therefore it's a paradise for snorkeling and just relaxing. If you're in to kite surfing, bring your gear.
We rented a Cat, lagoon 38 (bareboat charter) at St. Vincent via Tropical Yachts, in January 2012. Did island hopping for a week, which was not enough. We will return Jan 2014 to visit the rest of the Grenadines and to stay for several days in Tobago Cays area.

“Tobago Cays - Just beautiful”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

The Tobago Cays is a protected area in the Caribbean that has some fantastic view and wonderful marine life. Turtles , Sharks, Rays, Manta Rays, Iguanas, all here to enjoy and experience. My son aged 8 and I spent many hours snorkelling off the boat and from the shores to explore the marine life. Whilst my 11 year old daughter and my wife explored the shallows and the beaches. This is a stop off you can't miss if you are sailing in the Caribbean Waters.
Stayed for 4 days in the shelter of the bay and met other yachtsman and families whilst there.
Personal and memorable experience.
