Comments This was our second dive trip to Tobago, and we seldom go to the same place two years in a row, but we fell in love last year and had to go back! The good: dive shop, owner, dive masters, water, diving; the so-so - the boat isn't fancy - but we don't need fancy; if you are looking for a party time at night - this isn't your destination. Need to know before you go: be on island time! Enjoy the beauty! The dive shop owner - Alvin Douglas, lovingly referred to by friends as Big Dougie is extremely accommodating. Please make sure you are on island time! If you are not an "island time" person this may not be the place for you. But if you are ready to relax, be catered to, have incredible dive experiences, then this is the place for you! We feel like Dive Masters Kyle and Kime and Big Dougie are family! They are extremely knowledgeable, eco-friendly, and safety conscious. They make sure you are comfortable. By accommodating - if there is a dive site you want to go to, they'll do what they can to make it happen. They try to show you the best of the island! If you want someone to wait on you, they will; if you want to participate in setting up dive equipment, they will let you!

UW Photo Comments The boat is small - but they have places to protect your camera. There is not a table to change anything out other than the captain's console and tank area or seating area.
