While the reef tour itself was good, the Nylon Pool was by far the best part of the cruise! Our guides were very laid-back, helpful, and courteous. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling to Tobago!

Great tour. Captain Jack really got into it and made it enjoyable. Weather made it a bit tough, but on the whole great.

4 star rating: Recommended February 2013

Great but only problem was that I did not receive any joining instructions. I only managed to find tour because a kind taxi driver took pity on me and made several phone calls for me.

Excellent. Guide met us at pier head as promised. Unfortunately, sea was choppy with strong current, so snorkelling was limited. (Only strong swimmers). View from glass-bottomed boat was great.

Ship was late letting us off because of immigration. When we got outside gates, no one waiting even though I rang the day before to confirm. Eventually we found a representative of Trinidad and Tobago Sightseeing Tours who then sorted out the transport because their man was stuck in traffic. The taxi who took us to the boat came and picked us up and returned us to the port. Boat ride was great with lots of information about the reef and fish. Drinks and nibbles were provided. However when we got back to port the head of the taxi group wanted me to pay for the taxi. After much heated discussion and his realisation I was not going to pay I left him to sort it out with Trinidad and Tobago Sightseeing.
