It’s easy to see why the Caribbean islands are so popular: year-round sun, fun and rum on tap, golden palm-lined sands and warm turquoise seas.
But there’s a lot more to these beautiful seas than first meets the eye. The Caribbean features a host of dive sites, some of the best of which can be found off the coasts of Tobago, one of the smaller islands, that sits at the foot of the archipelago.
Tobago’s waters are home to more than 400 sea species and stunning reefs, but witnessing these in full glory requires learning to scuba dive - one of the fastest growing sports in the world and something I’ve always wanted to try. Anybody aged 10 and over can learn, providing you can swim and are in general good health.
