A trip to the Buccoo reef and Nylon Pool . It is one of the most famous attractions and things to do in Tobago but you have to get the right boat with the right guides for this experience. I will recommend the Boat Millennium 1, Captained by Chilly . All you have to do is go to Store Bay and ask anyone for him. He is a very friendly character, hard to miss after your first encounter with him. Very knowledgeable of the tour and has been in this business for over 20 years.

Glass bottom boat trip was fantastic experience, but be prepared to get wet boarding and leaving the boat as there is no pier and you need to wade out to the boat. Saying that everything else was great including the snorkling and Nylon pool, a very fine coral sand reef you can walk on as it is only a few feet deep. You have to be a good swimmer for the snorkling though as the water is 10 to 15 feet deep. The corals and fish were breathtaking however and I could easily have spent the full day snorkling. The glass bottom boat is ideal for non swimmers to also experience the fish and corals. A very worthwhile morning or afternoon trip.

The Coral is very much alive, and there were lots of different kinds of fish to see. We arranged a trip out to the reef, just the 4 of us, from the beach at Pigeon Point, with the owner of Power 1, a glass bottom boat. We stopped at the Nylon Pool first, then went to the reef. Once we got to the reef, he towed us behind his boat by a rope and a surf board that we held onto. This way, he does not drop his anchor, and damage the coral...we also saw more of the reef than we would have if we had just been swimming. I can not swim, but he had life jackets, so I put one on, and then I could see the reef as well. We were out for a couple of hours....would definitely recommend this is you like to snorkel.

As beautiful as nylon pool, very amazing. Wild life makes everything really amazing. The green/blue sea is wonderful!
