About Cruising to Tobago Cays

This collection of five uninhabited islands comprise much of Tobago Cays Marine Park, dubbed the "Jewel in the Crown" of the southern Grenadines since its establishment in 1997.

A horseshoe reef shelters the islands, making them fantastic snorkeling. Small sailing vessels, including Star Clipper's Royal Clipper, Club Med 2, Island Windjammers and some Windstar ships call here. But it's primarily the domain of private yachts and day charters.

Commercial cruises shuttle passengers to Petit Bateau for beach barbecues. Infrastructure on the tiny island is limited to a few picnic tables, but the white, sugary sand beaches and calm turquoise water make it an alluring spot. An uphill hiking trail offers nice views of the Grenadines. Locals from nearby islands also arrive on cruise days to sell their own freshly cooked seafood and side dishes. Small boats with names like Magic Carpet, More Fresh and Never Give Up Never bob offshore, and their owners will shuttle snorkelers out to the reef for a small fee. Plan a trip to Tobago Cays with our upcoming St. Vincent and Grenadines cruise itineraries.

More about Tobago Cays

Why Cruise to Tobago Cays?

Pros:

Hugged by a horseshoe reef, these islands are a snorkeler's paradise

Cons:

You'll have to pay a fee to enter the marine park

Bottom Line:

The unspoiled islands of Tobago Cays Marine Park are a top-notch destination for diving and snorkeling

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

The local currency is the East Caribbean dollar. But given the lack of commerce, you won't need a lot of cash here. U.S. dollars are accepted, but expect to get change back in East Caribbean dollars. For current exchange rates, visit www.oanda.com or www.xe.com.

Language?

English is the official language of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

We saw a lot of sea life here (turtles, rays, grouper, etc.), but there are a lot of boats in the harbor, making snorkeling a little stressful.Read More

Great beach for BBQ. Saw rays and puffer fish in the water. Good shade. Difficult to swim much because of wind, currents and so many vessels in bay. Shame the area was polluted with some rubbish from the take aRead More
