Comments This was great, challenging diving on a very healthy reef system surrounding Tobago. We spent the first two days on the Caribbean side of the island, where the visibility was good and the current was mild. We saw several batfish, a real treat, and so many critters that our slates were full by the time we came to the surface. The Atlantic side was breathtaking, both for its beauty and the 5-finger diving. We saw more octopuses out during the day on those three days of diving that we had in all of our diving combined. There were turtles galore and schools of tarpon. Crabs of all sizes and shapes, nudis, figerprint cyclomas, yellow garden eels, a southern stingray the size of a manta, and waters thick with angels.

The divemasters, Motley and Tyson, were outstanding. Not only did they know the reef, but they were truly interested in talking about what we'd seen. The only negative of the trip is that the Wind Dancer is not the most stable boat in the world in the choppy waters, so the boat rocked and rolled all night long, even in the "protected" harbors.
