We express our deepest gratitude to Hugh Stickney for allowing us to illustrate myTobago.info with his wonderful photographs of Tobago. Based in the San Francisco Bay area of the United States, Hugh is a regular visitor to Tobago. Check out Hugh's beautiful work on Fine Art America and on Flickr. His photos can be purchased as canvas prints, framed, as greeting cards or phone cases and more.
We have been fortunate enough to enjoy two aerial tours of Tobago. The first trip, in 2005, was by helicopter. Sadly, fuel constraints meant that we could only cover half of the island. In 2007, a commercial pilot reader offered his services. This enabled us to hire a light aircraft and fly over from Trinidad. Trying to take photographs through a tiny window flap was a challenge. Keeping the window open proved more than the bone-shaker could take and we were forced to hunker down and beat a hasty retreat down the Caribbean coast before abandoning the aircraft at Tobago airport.
This gallery combines 68 photographs from both trips. Although there has been extensive development on the island since they were taken, I am satisfied that they still represent an adequate depiction of the island.
The gallery is presented as a slideshow. After leaving the Crown Point airport, we travel up the Caribbean coast, around the northern end of the island and then down the Atlantic coast. Buckle up and enjoy your flight!
Choosing the right accommodation is most people's priority when planning a holiday. So, most of our time on Tobago is spent conducting reviews of hotels, guest houses and self-catering rental properties. Nowhere is right for everyone, so we try to provide an accurate and honest description of each property, devoid of marketing hype in the hope that our reviews will help visitors choose accommodation best suited to their tastes and preferences. In recent years, we have been producing video supplements to our reviews. This page lists all the review videos currently available.
