GOLF
Golf in the Caribbean is famous for being a wonderful experience and Tobago is certainly no exception. Tobago boasts two courses with international reputations; they have very different characters and provide different golfing experiences. Between them, they offer variety and the ability to choose anything from a comprehensive dedicated golfing holiday to just the odd round on a 'holiday with golf', and the Mahogany Ridge is only 5 -10- mins drive from both courses. Tobago Plantations Golf and Country Club - The modern Plantations championship course has been built in the old sugar plantation of Lowlands Estate. It is sited alongside the Atlantic Ocean and was planned around the mature trees and landscape features, including an old sugar mill. The landscape varies greatly throughout the course with lakes, wetlands, woodland copses, beaches, mangrove and wild grasses providing each hole with a distinctive character. The course was only established a few years ago and was designed by Bob Hunt and Marcus Blackburn of PGA Golf Management Ltd. Further information can be found at www.golftobagoplantations.com. Mount Irvine Bay Golf Club - This award-winning championship quality course was carved out from the grounds of an old coconut plantation and has magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea. It is set in gently rolling countryside along the north coast of Tobago. The course was established in 1968 and was designed by the late Commander John D. Harris and considered to be his finest. It has been a regular host to Pro-Am competitions.
WATER SPORTS
Tobago is renowned with having some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean. It is a destination for both advanced and amateur divers.

Diving can be enjoyed in virtually any area of the island. Tobago has a relatively untouched underworld; marine life abounds - sharks, barracuda, manta rays, stingrays, and hundreds more. The waters abound with nutrients, an underwater world of thriving sea fans and some of the largest brain coral. Wrecks are another attraction on the island.
Drift diving is popular in Tobago, and several sites are well known for the intense currents which allow this challenging type of dive.
The seas are at their roughest from December to April and the temperature is highest from July to September - reaching around 80°F. Manta rays are best seen in the winter months when the waters are cooler.
BY THE SEA
There are many ways to take advantage of the sea and coast. Scuba diving snorkeling can be done from the beach or off a boat. Sailing and cruising is readily available in Tobago. There are many Tour Operators offering a range of Coastal and Snorkelling tours, A trip in a power boat or a glass-bottomed boat.

Island Girl is a lovely Catamaran for a perfect day out….. All snorkel equipment, food and drink included. Highly recommended.
One very special feature of Tobago is turtle watching, as the Giant Leatherback Turtle nests on the Stonehaven and Courland beaches between March and August. There is an Organisation called S.O.S. which is easily contactable and will call you when turtles are on the beach or when the eggs are hatching. We take our turtles seriously in Tobago.
