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 major dive destination, attracting snorkelers and divers of all experience levels. This beautiful island boasts more than 60 dive sites with about 300 different coral species and a vast number of colorful fish. Kariwak Reef is situated in Store Bay and it is considered to be an excellent dive site for PADI training and novice divers.

The spot can be dived either from the beach at Store Bay or from a boat. Divers can encounter many varieties of fish, such as electric rays, moray eels, angel fish, southern stingray, scorpion fish, barracudas and parrotfish. Hawksbill turtles are also frequently seen. The average depth is 11 m/36.1 ft and the maximum depth is 14 m/45.9 ft. In addition, visibility is good, due to the absence of currents and varies from 10 m/32.8 ft to 30 m/98.4 ft.

Kariwak Reef is also a great location for night diving, as it caters a spectacular variety of nocturnal marine life. Finally, it is advisable not to walk on the reefs or touch the coral formations. Note: be careful of boat traffic.
