Awaken your wild side as you venture off the beaten path to explore Tobago's lush natural beauty.

Discover why Tobago truly is Nirvana for all naturalists.
Tobago is a sight to behold both on land and water. Under its surface, divers and snorkelers can discover a kaleidoscopic world, replete with vivid sponges and corals and brilliantly colored marine life. The island's intimate reef systems are rich in marine biodiversity, clear, pristine waters, and its range of diving sites are natural treasures. Tobago also has many highly trained instructors and a hyperbaric chamber, making Tobago the perfect dive destination for both experienced and novice divers.
December to April is the prime time to spot the most birds. Before the wet season, especially March and early April, is when many forest species are at their most active, and migratory species, stopping over on the way to North America, are at their peak. There can be an estimated 260 species on the island at this time.
You can be assured of good field observations whenever you visit Tobago though, as the island has a huge range of permanent resident birds. And for the non-experts there's plenty to spot without going too far from your sun-lounger, with many hotels and lodges setting up feeders that attract the prettiest little hummingbirds.
