Diving: Introduction

A comprehensive guide to scuba diving on Tobago

Culloden Reef

Tobgo offers world-class scuba diving opportunities. If you have never dived there before and are considering a diving holiday to this wonderful island, we strongly recommend that you read all the articles in this section.

Experts have always agreed that Tobago offers world-class diving. However, it is only in recent years that the island has developed enough to attract more than the most dedicated SCUBA addicts. Thrilling drift dives, the opportunity to swim with pelagics and view some of the largest recorded brain coral in the world will excite even the most experienced diver.

Whether you’re a raw beginner or an advanced diver, Tobago has a lot to offer to both experienced divers and those of limited experience, who will find it the perfect destination to stimulate their interest. Visitors wanting to try the sport for the first time will find friendly, expert tuition in conditions that are guaranteed to whet their appetite and have them returning for many years to come.

Until relatively recently, Tobago diving facilities have been limited, but they’re improving rapidly and the best services on the island are now easily on a par with those of any other destination.
