5 Magical Scuba Diving Sites In Tobago August 23, 2018

The underwater world off Tobago's shores is calling out to be explored. There are incredible scuba diving opportunities here for all levels, where you can see beautiful coral formations and amazingly colourful marine life in its natural habitat.

5 Magical Scuba Diving Sites In Tobago

Cove Reef
Cove Reef is one of Tobago’s deeper reefs (10-27m) in the south end of the island. As you explore numerous crevices and caves you’ll spot many creatures hiding away such as lobsters, moray eels and nurse sharks.

Flying Reef
Flying Reef is a hugely popular dive site for its length and depth of 16 metres, as it’s perfect for both beginners and advanced divers. You can’t help but be blown away by the magical scenery; a forest of soft corals and enormous sponges are home to a vast variety of reef fish such as Triggerfish, Rainbow Parrotfish, Angelfish, Butterfly Fish, Porcupine Fish and even Turtles.

M.S. Maverick
In 1977 a 70 metre long ferry ‘Scarlett Ibis’ was sunk to create an artificial reef, which was renamed the ‘Maverick’ and sits upright on the sandy sea bed. The boat offers a beautiful dive as she’s coated in colourful corals and you can watch schools of fish darting in and out of the ship in stunning formations.

Mount Irvine Wall
One of Tobago’s most interesting and visually stunning dive sites is Mount Irvine Wall in the protected bay of Mount Irvine. A steep cliff is broken by beautiful canyons, cracks and ledges and is the home of large groups of schooling fish such as surgeonfish or triggerfish, and you’re even in for a chance at spotting seahorses.

Japanese Garden
Tobago’s Japanese Garden is known as one of the best dive sites off the island to see the largest variety of marine life. The dive starts with a descent into ‘fish soup’, before you drift towards ‘Kamikaze Cut’, where you can then enjoy four different zones of amazing diving taking in extraordinary underwater scenery all around.

Tobago has so much to offer, and nature lovers will also love the incredible birdwatching opportunities in beautiful tropical forests.
