Trinidad and Tobago is an island country that is situated just off the coast of northeastern Venezuela. Both Trinidad and Tobago islands surprise visitors with their unspoiled natural beauty that is not found in most of the other Caribbean islands. The climate here is classified as tropical with two seasons annually, the dry and rainy season and the winds are usually influenced by the northeast trade winds. The islands are known not only for their beautiful sandy beaches, but also for their carnivals.

Blessed with abundant marine life, Tobago is a world-class dive destination. This beautiful island boasts more than 60 dive sites with about 300 different coral species and spectacular species diversity. Buccoo Reef is a protected marine park that lies between Pigeon Point and Buccoo Point. The spot caters the largest coral reef on the island.

In the shallower Coral Gardens, divers are able to see mostly wave-resistant species, such as Elkhorn and Star corals, while in deeper flats of the reef, they can admire Starlet and brain corals. It is a very popular spot among divers and snorkelers, so it is always very crowded. The average depth of this magnificent site is 10 m/32.8 ft and the maximum depth is 15 m/49.2 ft. In addition, visibility is good and varies from 10 m/32.8 ft to 30 m/98.4 ft.

Buccoo Reef is appropriate for both the beginner and experienced diver. It is recommended not to walk on the reefs or touch the coral formations. Last but not least, you can also visit the spot and see the reef from a glass-bottomed boat.
