There are many fantastic dive sites available in Tobago. Listed below are 54 established dive sites located all around the coast of Tobago.

The list starts at Columbus Point and extends around the coastline, in a clockwise direction, to Pedro Point off King’s Bay. There are no recreational dive sites along the mid-Atlantic coast between these two points. 


You may be wondering why the absence of Tobago’s most famous reef from the list of dive sites. However, Buccoo Reef is a very shallow reef and best viewed by snorkellng. The Coral Gardens to the south-western end of Buccoo Reef are used by some operators for training dives or children’s courses, but even then only rarely.
