Comments [None] Diving in Tobago was like a great adventure. The Dive Master, Sean Robinson is very personable and out going. Yes, the room and board are very basic, but the price and value are outstanding. Every dive gave me a sense of excitement and anticipation that I had not felt since I first got into diving. Usually, Sean's boat is the only boat you well see once you get out into the ocean. Lot of beautiful corals and marine life.

Caribbean Air is the only airline that connects to Tobago. If you are at the end of a long line at Customs in Trinidad, then tell one of the customs agents that you have a connecting fight to Tobago and you will be put at the front of the line. If you hit a big line in Tobago to go back to Trinidad, you need to go across the street and talk to someone in the ticket office. You will again go to the front of the line if you have a connecting flight.

Yes, the drive to Speyside is at least 1 hour, but if you want the excitement of diving in a remote location, that is part of the price you have to pay.
