ABOUT OUR DIVING IN TRINIDAD : Trinidad is the only Caribbean island that does not have the clear blue waters typically associated with our location, this is due mainly to the emptying of the Orinoco river into our waters. The diving here has been compared by many as being similar to “back home” in England, or the lakes and quarries of North America. On the positive side the plankton and nutrient rich waters that feed into the Trinidad waters support some of the largest Manta Rays, Whale sharks and such marine life, not usually seen in the numbers that they are seen here, elsewhere in the Caribbean.
Most of the dive trips are around the islands of the North Western Peninsula of Trinidad, where the water is usually calm and conditions are suitable for divers from beginner levels up.
