The island of Tobago is a great destination that may not have come up high on a scuba divers destination wish list, but the diving here can be even more spectacular than many other Caribbean destinations. There are around 60 documented dive sites accessible from both live-aboard and land-based dive ops. Many of the dives are drift dives and are relatively easy. Water temperatures range from 82F/28C in the summer to a cool 75F/24C in January and February. There are several wreck dives and plenty of marine life and spectacular reef scenery. In Tobago you'll find some of the largest mounds of brain coral in the world, some heads much larger than a diver.
