Diving in Tobago is fairly easy. Warm water between 27 and 30 degrees Celsius, moderate dive depth, close distance to dive sites, small groups and experienced guides make your dive experience safe and enjoyable. Only occasionally the current can be strong and the surface conditions rough but there are always some spots which are sheltered.
In general it is easier to start diving in the south and then proceed to dive sites in the north eastern end of the island. Extra Divers Tobago’s advantage is that they run dive shops on both ends of Tobago (Black Rock & Speyside) so divers can make full use of the company’s logistics. Customers of Extra Divers Tobago can split their dive packages between both facilities and can choose how many dives they want to do in either location (own transportation required).
Our daily excursions are two tank dive trips between the hours of 9:00 am and 2:00 pm. On request we offer a third dive in the afternoon or a night dive at 6:00 pm. Maximum dive time is 60 minutes and maximum depth limit is 30 meters. The surface interval between the dives will be at least 60 minutes. We serve complimentary bottled water and snacks during the surface interval. Trips to Speyside (Little Tobago), Charlotteville or Sisters can be arranged on demand almost any day and are subject to additional charges.
There is no mandatory check dive or refresher dive required but we strongly encourage divers with a dive break of more than one year to start with a relaxed shore dive in order to get their skills up to date.
