is the smaller of the two main islands that make up
the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It is located in
the southern Caribbean Sea, northeast of the island
of Trinidad and southeast of Grenada. The island lies
outside the hurricane belt.
is a haven for those seeking the quintessential Caribbean
vacation with cozy resorts, picture-postcard beaches
and a stunning marine environment.
is the destination for divers. It is a small island
and compared to many other Caribbean Island destinations,
it is visited by relatively few divers making it very
pristine and untouched. It is a great destination for
the beginner and very advanced diver alike. Sites range
from gently sloping coral reefs to stunning vertical
rock faces covered with encrusting sponges, gorgonians
and stony corals. These sites support a wide range of
life, most notably the stingrays, eagle rays, hawksbill
turtles, and nurse sharks. On the smaller end of the
scale you will find cherubfish, flameback angelfish,
and sea horses.
The south end of this tiny island is the quieter, shallower
area while the north end experiences the Guyana Current
creating intense and exciting drift dives. These drift
dives are fantastic. Large shoals of grunt and snapper
create a swirl of moving color. Green morays, nurse
sharks, turtles and the occasional whale shark complete
the dream dive.

Information and Tips
Trinidad & Tobago has two main seasons - the dry
season, from January to May and the wet or rainy season,
from June to December. In the rainy season, mornings
are usually sunny, followed by rainy afternoons and
fair nights. During this time, the general rainfall
pattern is interrupted by days of brilliant sunshine.
This is similar to what temperate climes know as Indian
Summer and offers a warm, invigorating change from dull
weather. This mini-break normally happens between mid
September to mid October.
