With a plethora of charm and alluring attractions, there is no better way to see this small Caribbean island than with a local private tour with a local guide, willing and eager to show tourists a great time. Let’s take a look at some of the best tour options on offer in Trinidad.

1. Island Experiences - Private Day Tours

Island Experiences offers a full complement of services from driving to and from the airport to several private outings around the island.

The tours are not simply about seeing all the attractions, but the tour guides who are well versed in the history of Trinidad will enlighten guests about the island of Trinidad.

2. Zoe Snorkeling Charter

Zoe Snorkeling Charter focuses on snorkelling excursions by boat. With a Yamaha SX230 jet boat operated by Captain Peter Abraham, Zoe Snorkeling has operated tours trips to the many reefs of Trinidad Tobago since 1986.

On the reefs, guests get to interact with marine life. Snorkelers can swim with the small, elusive reef creatures as well as a chance of encountering dolphins.

3. Splash Sports Catamaran Cruises

With a custom designed 50-foot catamaran, Splash Sports Catamaran Cruises ensures maximum space and comfort on its cruises.

Of significant importance, the trip is all inclusive so there is no need for extensive baggage. This included is a BBQ lunch, drinks all day as well as swimming and snorkelling. Specially included is a full day excursion to a private bay and then to Buccoo reef.

4. Island Girl Catamaran

Offering day trips and sunset cruises, Island Girl Catamaran is for those who want a relaxing day along the beach. With the day trip, guests travel up the Caribbean coast to Cotton Bay, a bay that is only accessible via boat.

Visitors can relax on the beach, have good food and snorkel along the reefs.  Tour guides will provide them with close encounters of sting rays and other marine life.

After Cotton Bay, the tour continues to Emerald Bay. Here, the waters are deeper, offering excellent snorkelling experiences.  After Emerald Bay, guests will return to Mount Irvine.

5. Kennedy Island Tours

Owned by Wayne Kennedy, Kennedy Island Tours has been in service for more than 10 years. With Kennedy Island Tours, guests will learn about wildlife including birds and other animals as well as rainforests and even marine life.

Additionally, tours can be tailored to suit personal requirements and tastes.  This includes private fishing trips, wildlife viewing, etc.

Because Trinidad and Tobago are so close to mainland South America, the islands’ bio-diversity is astounding.

This separates the island from many others in the Caribbean. For the nature lovers, this is a haven for fun, adventure and excitement.
