Rick, Not sure about the ferry schedule. It could be booked up. Again I am not sure but I think that in the past you had to get your ticket in advance. If you look on line, google, you can get a phone # at Trinidad Tobago ferry so you can call them. When you get through immigration and customs go right to Caribbean Airlines and you may have a good chance to get on the 12:45 flight standby. You could wait (you would probably be first on the list) and fly standby in the morning the first flight is 5:45. I would think that people might not show up for those late night early morning flights. I don"t go standby because I have alot of luggage and don't want to take a chance on getting separated from it. I too screwed up and even though I get in at 6:00AM on the 28th I can't get to Tobago until the morning of the 29th. I see now that Caribbean is booked full the 26,27,28,29 and 30th. In the past I have checked Caribbeans website every chance I get in the weeks before I go and have been able to get lucky and get a booking when someone cancels and an opening shows up. Hope this helps. Look me up if you get to Charlottesville, most people know me there. Phil

Hi Phil - Thanks for the reply . Much to my surprise after 3 or 4 phone calls I was able to get the reservation I thought I had on the right day. Carribean Airlines treated me good but had to be persistant as they didn't return my 1st 2 calls as they said. But alls well that ends well. Thanks again Rick
