The first question most cruisers ask is, why travel all the way to Trinidad and Tobago?

Several reasons come to mind. Many will need to get work done on their boats and are attracted by Trinidad's reputation for excellent work or low prices. Others will seek to keep their boat in a safe place during the Caribbean hurricane season. Many of these people leave their boats and return to North America or Europe for the summer. Other cruisers travel to Trinidad or Tobago just to experience the islands and its people. It is a shame that more don't as there is much to see and do.

Often cruisers are so focused on getting their work done that they seldom venture beyond Chaguaramas. We will attempt to explore some of the things that can be found beyond the limits of the marinas in Chaguaramas or on the island of Tobago, as well as where to find the services and facilities needed.
