  • Tobago Highlights & Folklore Show

    Enjoy the considerable highlights of Tobago, taking its colonial forts, natural beauty and a traditional folkloric show that describes early life on the island.

    Depart from the pier and begin driving through the capital of Scarborough, an area first settled by the Dutch in 1654. A few years later, the settlement fell to the French and then to the British, who built Fort King George on a cliff high above the ocean in the 1770s. It's the island's best-preserved historical monument and offers a fine panoramic view of the bay.

    Continuing on, you'll stop at the Mysterious Tombstone, which bears a puzzling epitaph from the 18th century. It lies in the shadow of Fort James, a British-built fortress constructed with coral stone in the 1800s on the site of a picket post where soldiers watched for enemy invaders. The views are sweeping and well worth a photo.

    The sights are just as impressive on the other side of Tobago, as you'll see driving through the Mount Irvine Bay Golf Course, a green jewel carved from the grounds of an old coconut plantation. Similarly, the beach at Store Bay on the island's western tip offers a glorious view of the sea.

    Finally, at the Fairfield Cultural Centre, you'll be greeted with a welcome cocktail before being seated for a traditional folkloric performance. The colors are bright, the performers energetic, and the show exceptionally entertaining. Afterwards, you'll drive back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes minimal walking, mainly at the guests' discretion during the stops. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them.

  • Tropical Garden & Nature Reserve

    After stopping at the landmark Fort James, this excursion celebrates the diversity of Tobago's tropical birds at a magnificent nature reserve.

    Depart from the pier and begin driving through the capital of Scarborough, an area first settled by the Dutch in 1654. Before long, you'll arrive at the Mysterious Tombstone, which bears a puzzling epitaph from the 18th century. It lies in the shadow of Fort James, a British-built fortress constructed with coral stone in the 1800s on the site of a picket post where soldiers watched for enemy invaders. The views are sweeping and well worth a photo.

    The sights are just as impressive toward Plymouth on the northern side of Tobago, where you'll visit the Tropical Garden and Nature Reserve. It's a paradise for birdwatchers, especially those who love hummingbirds, as there are plenty of different species darting from feeder to feeder. At the Reserve's undercover viewing Bird Observation Center, you'll have a marvelous opportunity to get a close-up view of them.

    Many of the hummingbird names reflect their markings and colors, such as the black-throated mango, ruby topaz, white-necked jacobin, and copper-rumped, a species that perches in plain sight to aggressively defend its territory. Other species of birds are in abundance, too. Depending on where you wander, you may catch sight of blue tanagers, barred antshrikes and cocricos, the national bird of Tobago.

    After visiting this tropical wonderland, you'll drive back to the pier along a coastal route that takes you through a lush golf course and past several luxury hotels.

  • Buccoo Reef Glass Bottom Boat

    Observe the rich biodiversity of Tobago's abundant marine life by cruising through the pristine waters on a glass-bottom boat and then snorkeling, if you choose.

    Depart from the pier for a short drive to Pigeon Point Beach, a photogenic stretch of sand where the sea is typically calm and clear. Upon arriving, you'll wade out into the ankle-deep water just off shore and board a glass-bottom boat, your window to the world underwater.

    First, you'll pass over a coral garden inhabited by brain, starlet and elkhorn corals. It's an excellent prelude to what lies ahead at Buccoo Reef, Tobago's largest reef. Designated a marine park and no-fishing zone in 1973, the reef is relatively flat and the water shallow, making this area ideal for snorkeling.

    Whether you decide to observe the marine life through the boat's glass bottom or by snorkeling, you'll surely see an endless parade of brightly colored tropical fish. A number of turtle species nest along Tobago's west coast, so you may also catch sight of endangered leatherbacks, green loggerheads and hawksbill turtles.

    Then, it's on to Nylon Pool, an idyllic lagoon protected by an offshore sandbar. While visiting in 1962, Princess Margaret named the pool for its shallow, translucent waters. You'll have the opportunity to swim here before retracing your path back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour is mostly seated and includes minimal walking. The main activity is for those who choose to snorkel the reef or swim at Nylon Pool. 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. Light weight, casual clothing; swimwear; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. There is no restroom on the boat. Snorkeling mask and reef shoes are available on the boat. Those who participate in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.

  • The Windward Coast & Little Tobago

    Ride a glass-bottom boat through the crystalline waters off northeastern Tobago to the island of Little Tobago, one of the Caribbean's most important seabird sanctuaries.

    Depart from the pier and enjoy a picturesque drive northeast along Windward Road, a coastal highway that offers some of the most scenic views on Tobago. You'll pass through one lovely village after another until reaching Speyside, where you'll find the Blue Waters Inn. Located on the site of a former plantation, the estate has long attracted naturalists who come for bird watching and water-related pastimes.

    One of the favorite activities is riding in a glass-bottom boat, which you'll experience firsthand after boarding one at the inn and setting out for Little Tobago. There's no telling what you'll observe below the water's surface, as the boat cruises over sea fan gardens teeming with brightly colored tropical fish.

    Before long, you'll arrive at Little Tobago, also known as Bird of Paradise Island. Although once a cotton plantation, the island has become a flourishing wildlife sanctuary for seabirds. More than 50 species live here, including laughing gulls, grebes, shearwaters, and red-billed tropicbirds. The island's name derives from the birds of paradise that were introduced here from New Guinea, when a thriving plume trade threatened their extinction.

    You'll have plenty of time to stroll about Little Tobago and take in its natural beauty, perhaps even take a dip in the ocean. Afterwards, you'll cruise back to the Blue Waters Inn and then drive back to the pier in Scarborough.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of moderate walking that includes natural and uneven surfaces. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns who are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability.

  • Scenic Tobago

    A showcase of southern Tobago's finest attractions, this excursion includes favorites from colonial forts to the most scenic natural settings.

    Depart from the pier and begin driving through the capital of Scarborough, an area first settled by the Dutch in 1654. Before long, you'll turn onto Claude Noel Highway, a main thoroughfare named for a Tobagonian professional boxer who became a national hero.

    Your first stop is at the Mysterious Tombstone, which bears a puzzling epitaph from the 18th century. It lies in the shadow of Fort James, a British-built fortress constructed with coral stone in the 1800s on the site of a picket post where soldiers watched for enemy invaders. The views are sweeping and well worth a photo.

    The sights are just as impressive toward Plymouth on the other side of Tobago, as you'll see driving through the Mount Irvine Bay Golf Course, a green jewel carved from the grounds of an old coconut plantation. Similarly, the beach at Store Bay on the island's western tip offers a glorious view of the sea.

    Then, returning to Scarborough, you'll visit Fort King George, which sits on a cliff high above the ocean. Built by the British in the 1770s, it's the island's best-preserved historical monument and reflects the fact that Tobago was once repeatedly attacked. Active until 1854, the fort displays many of its weapons, including cannons, on the grounds and in a small museum that was once the guardhouse. After visiting, you'll drive back to the pier.

  • Pigeon Point Beach Break

    Spend a leisurely day enjoying one of the most popular beaches in Tobago, lovely Pigeon Point on the island's western coast.

    Depart from the pier and enjoy a short drive west to Pigeon Point Beach, which is considered one of Tobago's most beautiful beaches. Shaded by coconut palms and blessed with soft, white sand and typically calm waters, Pigeon Point offers a truly relaxing setting.

    While there are a number of amenities such as restaurants, bars and shops, the real lure of Pigeon Point is its marvelous natural Caribbean beauty. You might swim or snorkel in the turquoise waters, stroll along the powdery beach, immerse yourself in a good book in the shade of an umbrella, or simply lie in the sun gazing out over the scenery.

    Thatched-roof huts are scattered about and there's a wooden jetty with a thatched-roof shelter at its end. Windsurfers and jet-skiers often zip through the water well off shore, painting a lovely backdrop for your relaxing endeavors. Pigeon Point is so iconic, so purely Caribbean you may think you've seen it before, which is highly likely, as the beach is often featured in travel magazines. After spending a few hours here, you'll re-board your transportation and return to the pier in Scarborough. Please be on time or you'll need to make your own way back to the ship, at your own expense.

  • Trek to Argyle Waterfalls

    Experience the natural beauty of Tobago with a short hike through a forest reserve to Argyle Waterfalls, where you may swim in the cool pools.

    Depart from the pier and enjoy a picturesque drive northeast along Windward Road, a coastal highway that offers some of the most scenic views on Tobago. Just before reaching the village of Roxborough, you'll turn toward Argyle Waterfalls, the island's highest waterfalls and certainly one of its most renowned natural attractions.

    Accompanied by a knowledgeable naturalist, you'll follow a trail through the surrounding low-mountain landscape, which makes up the oldest forest reserve in the Western Hemisphere. Established in 1776, it contains an abundance of unusual flora and fauna. You may see hummingbirds, butterflies, red squirrels and more, happily flitting and scurrying about. The flourishing bamboo and mix of trees such as mango, avocado and breadfruit make for an inviting backdrop that the naturalist will describe in detail.

    Before long, you'll reach Argyle Waterfalls, a series of stepped cascades that rise 175 feet into the dense forest. It's a magnificent sight, and you're welcome to take a refreshing dip in the serene pools at the bottom. It's immensely relaxing to effortlessly float on your back and gaze up into the tropical landscape, the waterfalls cascading down behind you. Afterwards, you'll drive back to the pier via the scenic coastal highway.

    Please note: This tour includes approximately 45-minutes of moderate walking that includes natural and uneven surfaces.

  • Tropical Rainforest Encounter

    Nature lovers will delight in this excursion that explores the exotic flora and fauna in the Tobago Rainforest Preserve, a virginal expanse that covers much of the northeastern island.

    Depart from the pier and enjoy a picturesque drive northeast along Windward Road, a coastal highway that offers some of the most scenic views on Tobago. You'll pass through one charming village after another until reaching the Tobago Rainforest Preserve.

    Established in 1776, it is the oldest protected forest in the Western Hemisphere. It was quite a feat to preserve the rainforest at the time, as the wealthy British plantation owners in Tobago desperately wanted to destroy it for timber and to plant more sugar cane.

    Being a virgin rainforest, with trees soaring as high as 165 feet into the air, the preserve supports an incredible abundance and variety of rare flora and fauna. Each story of the rainforest contains different species, including exotic tree ferns, bromeliad-covered cycads, devilwood, parrot apples and spiny gru-gru palms.

    Accompanied by a well-informed guide, you may also see all sorts of colorful birds that might include blue-backed manakins, white-tailed sabrewings, yellow-legged thrushes and blue-crowned mot mots, which make their nests in tunnels. The beautiful collared trogon is another bird commonly found here, but it flies so rapidly that it's often difficult to identify. You're more likely to hear its plaintive call, a low mellow "caow caow."

    Retracing your route back to the trailhead in Roxborough, you'll rejoin your awaiting transportation and drive back to the pier.

    Please note: This tour approximately 2 1/2 hours of hiking over mostly natural surfaces which can be uneven at times. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Participants should be in good physical condition. Light weight, casual clothing; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; insect repellant; binoculars; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. There is no restroom on the trail.
