We just turned up at the hotel looking to get onto a trip across to the island (they go at 14:00 according to the lady at the Bird Watchers restaurant), and were met by Jordan who got us on the right boat. The trip across was fast and not too bumpy although I understand others have had rough crossings. The boat took about 15 minutes to reach Little Tobago and then we were led up the winding path past the new museum being shown Motmot and Hermit crabs on the way. At the top of a fairly steep climb you reach a viewpoint where you can see down to the seabird cliffs and the jewels of the island are revealed. Our guide was very good at pointing out the different types of birds to those who needed his help but was switched on enough to spot the keen birders and point out specialities to them as well.
Even better - when this bit of the trip was finished we all marched back down to the jetty and those who were not interested in snorkelling were ferried straight back to the mainland while the swimmers were left on Little Tobago for half an hour to themselves before the boat returned to take them on to their reef destination - I had thought we were going to have to kick our heels on the boat for an hour while they swam but we didn't.
