Scuba diving in Trinidad and Tobago is a popular activity, and with crystal-clear waters and an abundance of great dive sites, it's easy to see why. Coral reefs are home to colourful fish and other marine life, including stingrays, dolphins, nurse sharks, sea turtles, sponges, moray eels and sea horses.
The best diving is around Tobago, which has its own hyperbaric recompression facility. Many good dive sites are around Speyside, and there are several good dive schools there, as well as other points around Tobago.
