Beyond ordinary diversity...
Nestled in the point where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea, Tobago’s coastal waters are alive with diverse colour. Just to the north of Venezuela and at the mouth of the Orinoco River, Tobago's dive sites are fed year-round by the nutrient-rich Guyana current – providing sustenance for the reefs and attracting a wide rainbow-coloured spectrum of life to the area.
Under the surface, divers will discover unspoilt reefs thick with sponges and corals – including the world’s largest known brain coral. Amongst the reefs, divers can expect to find closely-huddled schooling fish, moray eels, lobsters and sea horses, as well as headline attractions such as barracudas, tarpons, turtles, nurse sharks and rays.
An abundance of dive sites provides memorable opportunities for divers of all abilities from shallow snorkellers to novice drift divers and advanced challenges for the most experienced visitors. With more than 50 well-established dive sites in Tobago, there are plenty of options to choose from.
We’ve narrowed down our visitors’ favourite dive sites by region, from the Atlantic drifts on the island’s south side, to calmer waters on the north side in the Caribbean Sea.
