Tobago has both unspoiled rain forests and coral reefs and a largely undeveloped coastline; it's an ideal getaway for nature lovers, divers, and privacy-seekers. An abundance of fish and coral thrive on the nutrients of South America's Orinoco River, which are brought to Tobago by the Guayana current. There are many good spots to submerge including Crown Point, St. Giles Islands, and off the west coast, but it's the waters off Speyside that draw scuba-diving aficionados from around the world. Contact the following for information: AquaMArine Dive (809/660-4341), Dive Tobago (809/639-0202), Man Friday Diving (809/660-4676), Tobago Dive Experience (809/639-0191, ex. 39), and Tobago Marine Sports (809/639-0291). As far as persoanl safety goes, Tobagonians are a friendly people. Your biggest worry should be the flying insects--bring repellant during the rainy season (June-December).
