Experience it all
Tobago is bathed by the influx of the Guyana current, which transports the nutrient-rich waters of Venezuela’s Orinoco River to the reefs lying off Tobago’s shores. Waiting to consume the seemingly endless supply of nutrients is an abundance of reef fish living in one of the most breathtaking ecosystems the Caribbean has to offer, few places in the Caribbean one can see Mantas!

“The crew is very experienced, super friendly and they guided us expertly to the richest, most beautiful reef I have ever seen. (In Speyside, Tobago) Though I’ve snorkeled in other reefs, this was my first SCUBA dive. I felt safe and inspired from beginning to end. It was a magical, brilliant and indescribably beautiful. My only regret is that I didn’t have more time for more dives.”

“Fantastic diving in Speyside with Tobago Dive Experience. We stayed with Sean and Kathleen and their kindness and hospitality was outstanding! There are so many wonderful dive sites located in this area and in two weeks and 25 dives we saw lots but still not all. We were so well looked after and felt like we were part of the family. These guys love Tobago and love to show off what it has to offer. The highlight was an 8 ft Manta that decided to play around on a safety stop.”

“Firstly Tobago is a hugely underrated dive destination. However what made it truly special was diving with people who were so obviously passionate about the corals, sponges and marine life where they lived. My wife and I have been lucky enough to dive in some amazing locations around the world, but TDE stands out as being the most fun we’ve had. As a rule we don’t usually go back to the same place twice but I have a feeling we may be making an exception in this case.......”

“Just returned from a week long trip to Speyaide with a large group of 45 divers. As a group lead, I could not have been happier. The crew was extremely attentive, highly prepared, and accommodating to a large group. Logistically they worked wonders and the food cooked up by Kathleen was AMAZING. This was my second time diving with Shaun and the “experiences” are unmatched. Can not wait to return for some more diving in this gorgeous, untouched part of the world.”
