  • City Highlights & Cultural Center

    After a scenic tour of Port of Spain, deeply immerse yourself in the Trinidadian culture by watching an enthusiastic traditional performance at the Cultural Centre.

    Depart from the pier and begin driving through Trinidad's energetic capital, where you'll soon pass a red-and-white, hexagonal lighthouse. Built in the 1880s, it's now inactive, as the shoreline has been extended so the lighthouse is no longer on the jetty. It's still worthy of a photo, as are the brick Red House where Parliament is held and the Magnificent Seven, a group of seven eccentrically designed mansions along Queen's Park Savannah.

    Before long, you'll arrive for a brief stop at the Botanical Gardens, which were laid out in 1818. Nearly 700 trees, at least 100 of which are indigenous to Trinidad, shade the gardens, and hundreds of species of orchids thrive throughout the grounds. It's quite the sight.

    So is the view of Port of Spain from Lady Young Lookout, where you'll pause before driving to the city's Cultural Center. After a tropical welcome drink, you'll be treated to a traditional cultural show of music and dance. Trinidad celebrates the Caribbean Carnival with gusto, and the approximately one hour performance reflects the country's boundless enthusiasm for having a good time.

    It's an extravaganza of colorful costumes, pulsating music, nonstop revelry and abundant creativity, and you can't help but get caught up in the feeling. One of the highlights is a daring fire limbo. After the show, you'll drive back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes limited walking, mostly at the guests' discretion at the stops. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, can make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Casual, light-weight clothing; sunglasses; sun cap; sunscreen and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.

  • Trinidad Highlights & Scenic Drive

    This excursion presents Port of Spain's highlights with a leisurely drive about town and beyond with stops at the botanical gardens, several scenic lookouts, and the beach.

    Depart from the pier and begin driving through Trinidad's energetic capital, where you'll soon pass a red-and-white, hexagonal lighthouse. Built in the 1880s, it's now inactive, as the shoreline has been extended so the lighthouse is no longer on the jetty. It's still worthy of a photo, as are the brick Red House where Parliament is held and the Magnificent Seven, a group of seven eccentrically designed mansions along Queen's Park Savannah.

    Before long, you'll arrive for a brief stop at the Botanical Gardens, which were laid out in 1818. Nearly 700 trees, at least 100 of which are indigenous to Trinidad, shade the gardens, and hundreds of species of orchids thrive throughout the grounds. It's quite the sight.

    So is the view of Port of Spain from Lady Young Lookout, where you'll pause before driving north into the Santa Cruz Valley. While dotted with cocoa and coffee plantations, the fertile valley is starting to attract affluent Trinidadians to its new residential neighborhoods.

    In time, you'll stop at the Maracas Lookout and then at well-protected Maracas Bay, where you might take a brief swim or comb the beach. The numerous huts along the shore sell a specialty known as ""Bake and Shark,"" which is battered shark wrapped in deep-fried bread. After approximately an hour at Maracas Bay, you'll return to the pier in Port of Spain.

  • Trinidad Sport Fishing

    Hop aboard a deep-sea fishing boat and spend hours trying to catch some of the Caribbean's most highly prized fish, which include blue marlin, sailfish and tuna.

    Depart from the pier and enjoy a brief drive west, following the coast to the Trinidad Yacht Club in Bayshore. Here, you'll board a fully equipped fishing boat and head out into the turquoise waters. During the cruise to a prime fishing area, the crew will prepare your fishing tackle and describe the kinds of species that are often caught here.

    Spanish mackerel, black-fin tuna and wahoo are common. You might even hook an Atlantic blue marlin, the largest of the billfish. These beautiful cobalt-blue fish can grow up to 14 feet long and are known to weigh a ton, all of it muscle, determination and fight.

    Another highly sought-after fish is the Atlantic sailfish; a beautiful species that is capable of extreme bursts of speed, as much as 60 miles per hour. The fish's most prominent feature is its steel blue, sail-like dorsal fin. What a sight to see one jump out of the water, its glistening body shining in the sun before it dives back in, trying to extricate the hook.

    After approximately four hours on the water, you'll cruise back to the yacht club and then return to the pier in Port of Spain.

    Please note: This tour includes limited walking; however guests should be able to enter and exit the fishing vessel with limited assistance.

  • City Highlights & Pan Theater

    Enjoy a rousing steel band performance of pan music, a unique style that developed in Trinidad in the 1930s and has become synonymous with Caribbean music.

    Depart from the pier and begin driving through Port of Spain, the energetic capital of Trinidad, an island the Spanish settled a century after Columbus landed in 1498. Before long, you'll arrive for a brief stop at the Botanical Gardens, which were laid out in 1818. Nearly 700 trees, at least 100 of which are indigenous to Trinidad, shade the gardens, and hundreds of species of orchids thrive throughout the grounds. It's quite the sight.

    So is the city view from Lady Young Lookout, where you'll pause before driving on to the Pan Theater for a spectacular steel band performance. Named in homage of pan or steel pan music, the Pan Theater celebrates this unique style that was first developed in Port of Spain and then popularized throughout Trinidad.

    Many of the band's instruments are steel drums, also known as pans, pounded out of sheet metal or oil drums. After the note patterns are marked on the bottom, the instrument is then tuned and ready to be played. As you'll discover, the resulting sound is enthralling and the variety of songs remarkable. Your concert will include pan classics, pop songs and calypso, all played with enthusiasm that carries into the audience. Afterwards, you'll return to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes limited walking, mostly at the guests' discretion at the stops. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, can make their own way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them.

  • Caroni Bird Sanctuary

    Release your inner ornithologist by visiting the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, an idyllic wetland that attracts thousands of water birds, including the striking scarlet ibis, Trinidad's national bird.

    Depart from the pier and drive south towards the marshy wetlands formed where the Caroni River empties into the Gulf of Paria. Before long, you'll arrive at the Caroni Bird Sanctuary, which was established in 1953 and sprawls across a tidal lagoon and maze of mangrove-lined waterways.

    Best accessed by flat-bottomed boat, the sanctuary is home to thousands of primarily water birds. As you navigate the circuitous waterways, you may observe herons, cormorants and snowy egrets in their natural habitat, completely undisturbed by your presence.

    You may also see scarlet ibises feeding on frogs, reptiles and crustaceans, the latter being the source of their scarlet color. Ibises nest in large colonies and their stick nests can be seen in many of the trees. One of the most spectacular features of the Sanctuary happens in the evening light of a fading day on the Mangrove islands. It is here that the thousands of Scarlet Ibis and Egrets that make the Sanctuary their home come to roost for the night. Like clockwork, the birds arrive and begin covering the green mangroves, literally bringing them to life, making the mangroves take on the appearance of decorated Christmas trees.

    But don't just look up to see the wildlife. The sanctuary is also teeming with iguanas, caiman and mudskippers, an amphibious fish that uses its pectoral fins to walk on land. The plant life is just as enthralling and often accented by lilies with white, mauve or blue flowers.

    Caroni Bird Sanctuary offers an amazing viewing experience; one that can be enhanced by climbing to the top of a 60-foot wooden tower (if in operation) that provides a panoramic look over the surrounding marsh. Afterwards, you'll return to the pier in Port of Spain.

    Please note: This tour includes limited walking; however the tour is not available to wheelchair guests. Those guests with mobility concerns must be able to make their way into and out of the small boat with limited assistance and should carefully evaluate their personal level of ability. Casual, light-weight clothing; sunglasses; insect repellent, and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.

  • Trinidad 4x4 Adventure

    A liberating adventure into the countryside, this excursion by 4X4 Jeep offers a view of Trinidad that most visitors miss, as you'll travel well off the beaten path.

    Depart from the pier and enjoy a brief drive north to the town of Maraval, where you'll transfer to a 4X4 Jeep. The adventure then begins in earnest, as you'll ascend into the hills towards Paramin, a farming community where many of the homes and gardens cling to the steep mountainsides. It's here that many of Trinidad's fresh herbs and vegetables are grown in the cool mountain air, which is tinged with the sweet aroma of thyme, parsley and chives.

    Walking about the village, one of the highest in the Caribbean, you'll have the opportunity to meet the local families, ask about their lifestyle, and watch how they prepare produce such as yams and tomatoes for sale. Don't be surprised if they graciously offer you a taste of some of their local dishes. You'll also have a chance to make a brief visit to the Paramin River during your stop.

    As you descend from Paramin, natural beauty of a different sort takes hold. A brief stop at the Maracas Lookout offers breathtaking panoramic views of the coast, Northern Range and Port of Spain. A respite at well-protected Maracas Bay provides an idyllic beach scene where time permitting, you may wish to take a quick dip in the turquoise waters. Your route back to the pier travels through the fertile Santa Cruz Valley, another of Trinidad's hidden charms.

    Please note: This tour includes limited walking, mostly at the guests' discretion during the stops. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability.

    Depart from the pier and begin driving through Trinidad's energetic capital, where you'll soon pass the brick Red House where Parliament is held and the Magnificent Seven, a group of seven eccentrically designed mansions along Queen's Park Savannah. While all but one of the mansions were built in 1904, the architectural styles vary enormously and include German Renaissance, French Baroque and Moorish.

    Before long, you'll arrive for a brief stop at the Botanical Gardens, which were laid out in 1818. Nearly 700 trees, at least 100 of which are indigenous to Trinidad, shade the gardens, and hundreds of species of orchids thrive throughout the grounds. It's quite the sight.

    So is the view of Port of Spain from Lady Young Lookout, where you'll pause before driving to the edge of Trinidad's rainforest for a winding ascent to the Mount Saint Benedict's Monastery. Established in 1912 by monks that fled Brazil because of religious persecution, the monastery is a completely self-sufficient complex of buildings that includes a farm, apiary, public library, vocational school and, of course, church.

    As you stroll the grounds, your guide will describe the monks' way of life and present a historical perspective on the monastery's evolution over the years. After enjoying tea and homemade bread in the Garden of Peace, you'll return to the pier.

    Depart from the pier and begin driving through Trinidad's energetic capital, where you'll soon pass the brick Red House where Parliament is held and the Magnificent Seven, a group of seven eccentrically designed mansions along Queen's Park Savannah. While all but one of the mansions were built in 1904, the architectural styles vary enormously and include German Renaissance, French Baroque and Moorish.

    While touring, you'll discover all sorts of fascinating facts about rum production, the various flavors imparted by the oak aging barrels, and even how to make a perfect cocktail. The name Angostura comes from a town in Venezuela where Dr. Seigert, Surgeon General to the armies of Simon Bolivar, invented bitters to use in his medical practice. After sampling a variety of rums at the distillery, you'll return to the pier.

  • Asa Wright Nature Center

    Visit the spectacular Asa Wright Nature Center, a protected paradise of nearly 1,500 mountainous acres that supports an incredible diversity of wildlife, especially tropical birds.

    Depart from the pier and begin a scenic drive east into the heart of Trinidad. Along the way you'll pass through rainforests, mountain passes, and cocoa and coffee plantations. Nature rules here, and Trinidad has ensured that it will remain protected, especially the pristine Arima and Aripo valleys, where you'll find the Asa Wright Nature Center.

    Established in 1967 as one of the Caribbean's first nature centers, it comprises nearly 1,500 acres of mainly forested land in Trinidad's mountainous Northern Range. A leader in ecotourism long before the word was even coined Asa Wright is home to thousands of species of birds, mammals, butterflies and flowering plants.

    Accompanied by a naturalist guide, who'll point out the wildlife, you'll follow meandering walkways into the forest, where there's no telling what you'll see. Ornate hawk-eagles nest near the main house, golden-headed manakins dart through the trees, and the bell-like call of the bearded bellbird can be heard continuously. Not to be outdone, countless butterflies usually flit from flower to flower, iguanas perch in the trees, and nine-banded armadillos roam the forest floor digging for food.

    Even if you prefer to stay in the estate house and just watch the birds in the feeders, it's an immensely rewarding experience. Following a bountiful buffet lunch at the center, you'll drive back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 75-minutes of moderate walking/hiking plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Guests should be in good physical condition.
