Took a glass bottom boat ride to here and the nylon pools. More worth the trip for the nylon pools. As reefs go, this one is average. Not a huge amount of color or life. Also lots of fire coral, which burns your skin if...More

You cannot visit the Nylon Pool without passing through the Buccoo Reef in Tobago Using a glass bottom boat you will be able to see all that the reef has to offer.

There were some pretty nice views of the reef from the glass-bottomed boat, which I paid $100TT for at Store Bay. In Store Bay, look for the kiosk that says "Official Buccoo Reef Boat Tours", as they had far lower prices than the touts on...More

Visited the reef via Store Bay boat. Go to the actual boat and you will get a better deal. We paid $100TT each (about $15USD) however if booked through the hotel would have been $65USD each (massive difference). Speak to the boat owners on the...More

A very special wealth of reefs around Tobago ensures that the water does not take over half of Tabago. The reef acts as a barrier to high waves, an incubator for beautiful sea life and a point of interest for those who want to see...More

A worthwhile trip while on a cruise. It's about US$25 one way to get here by taxi. Don't pay more than US$20 per person on a glass bottom boat. We got ripped off by one of the locals due to lack of knowing this. Good...More

Saw more than I thought we would through the glass bottomed boat. Some people snorkelled but rough sea. Great trip overall

All of the glass bottom boat trips make a stop here for you to snorkel, however, be careful as the currents were quite strong. We used a full face, modern non fogging snorkelling mask that enabled you to breath through you nose and was truly...More

I had read that the majority of the reef had died. Upon seeing the reef for myself I was totally heartbroken to see that this was indeed the case. What should have been colourful coral and many varieties of fish turned out to be white...More

Not the most vast amount to see, but definitely a place to check out if your on a day boat trip, because each different sir has different things to see!

I'm visiting family in Trinidad the last weekend of October. I will have my 1 year old son with me. Would I be able to take him on the tour without a car seat? I do have a life jacket for him for the boat. I would like to know before we buy tickets and get excited if we won't be able to go on the tour. We are interested in the highlights tour and boat tour. Thank you!

You won't need a car seat on the Cool Runnings boat that my wife and I went on in December. If you want to snorkel then obviously someone will need to stay with your son. The trip that we were on also visited the Nylon Pool... More
Hi, I'm planning to visit Buccoo Reef and the Nylon Pool on a cruise stop. Any tips? I thought I'd take a taxi to Pigeon Point and find a tour there, but there is also a cruise excursion option for $65 (round trip from cruise port, glass bottom boat tour of reef and pool). I wonder what time tour operators start and if they will all be booked with the ship in port. Hoping to beat the crowd but that may not be an option if the tours don't start at 8am. Thanks

Hey Frida_Cu! There are tour operators right outside of the park and there are tours that leave from Store Bay. All the tours that I saw seem to have two times. One usually around 9 or 10 am and a second tour around 2pm. The... More
