Buccoo Reef Glass Bottom Boat

Light Activity /Walking

Duration: 3 hours

Tour Code: TOB-002

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.
