We went on the glass bottom boat with Top Ranking from the Blue Waters Inn. It was a little choppy and windy but once we got to the island (15mins) it didn't make a difference. Paul guided us through the island, giving plenty of wildlife information and historical information as we walked. We spotted various birds and insects and learned... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable, he showed us many lizards, spiders and birds. Once you get to the viewpoint the views are spectacular. Be careful can be slippery walk up/down so wear suitable footwear and clothing depending on the weather.

Went to see the amazing Red Billed Tropic Bird and we were not disappointed. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the plants and trees on our walk to the top. Not good for people with difficulty walking up or down hill over uneven ground and obviously hot tropical temperatures!

Even though the island's colony of bords of paradise was wiped out during the hurricane in the 1960s, the place remains a piece of paradise. We went out in a glass-bottomed boat, passing Goat Island which used to be owned by Ian Fleming and landed via a rather unsteady jetty. The only sounds on Little Tobago are from a wide... More

Took a boat and headed over. The tour was three hours long. The trip via the boat was amazing. Our guide Spencer was great at what he did and made us feel very comfortable. I suggest and recommend him to anyone. It's a bit of a walk but we were able to make it without too much stress. My 4... More

We took a boat ride from Speyside all the way to Little Tobago with a guide. We explored the land and the guide told us history of this land and showed birds (even a bird nest where sea bird baby was!!) So relaxing and it was a great 3 hour trip.

We lunched in the hotel restaurant from where the boat departs. Went over in a glass bottom boat and saw wonderful coral and fish and a Hawksbill Turtle! There is a guided walk around the island - it's very hilly, so you need to be able to walk pretty well. Our knowledgeable guide showed us some great nature/birds. Take binoculars... More

Went on a birding trip with Peter Cox Tours and highly recommend his services. This a must see for any birder. Must go by boat and the road to the dock is very rough.
