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

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.
