Tour Overview

Your tour begins with a scenic drive to Buccoo Bay Beach. Here, you'll board a glass-bottom boat and cruise out to Buccoo Reef, one of the most accessible coral reefs in the Caribbean, just a short distance off Pigeon Point and Store Bay beaches.

En route to Buccoo Reef, your captain will pass over the Coral Gardens, pointing out fascinating underwater sea life along the way. Upon arriving, snorkel for nearly an hour before cruising to Nylon Pool, a shallow white-sand area within Buccoo Reef with waters said to rejuvenate anyone lucky enough to swim in it. Dubbed by Princess Margaret as "Nylon Reef" during her honeymoon in 1962, she commented, "It's so crazy-blue, it looks like nylon."

This entire area, a Tobago national treasure, is designated as the country's only marine protected area under the Marine Areas Preservation and Enhancement Act of 1970. Following your visit to the Nylon Pool, your captain will set a course back to the landing at Pigeon Point Beach, where you will board your transportation for the return trip back to the pier.
