Postcards from Tobago: Two

Reef
Before filling up with sight-seeing tourists, the Glass Bottom boats play in Tobago’s Buccoo Reef. Listed as one of “The Tourist Things to Do” in my friend’s book of day trip recommendations while on the island, I must say I enjoyed the tour. Lasting about three hours, the tours make three stops. The first is to allow visitors the opportunity to skin dive and see some of the smaller creatures in the reef, on the second patrons stay seated in the boat while looking at the underwater world through the glass and the last gives everyone the chance to splash around in Nylon Pool. My personal favorite was the last stop where you can use the sand to give yourself and exfoliating scrub leaving your skin glowing in the warm Tobago sun afterwards.
