The glass-bottom boat tours only take people to the dead parts of the reef where they have been going for decades. They are putting pressure on this precious and precarious eco-system. They should really limit the amoun of boats going there.
Another victim of global warming perhaps and certainly excessive tourist boats and activities means there is not a lot of spectacular coral left.
It's still an eye opener especially for beginners if you try to use an eco-friendly boat rather than the big ones leaving...More
The Buccoo Reeef consisted of dirty coloured potato coral, all of the same hue. There was no coral that we saw of attractive colour. There were tropical fish but we have seen far more interesting reefs in Egypt and Mauritius. Were therefore disappointed. However it...More
Unfortunately there isn’t much coral to see....at least not where they took us to. The current was also very strong ...so they asked you to make sure you kept holding on to the rope and lifebelt. There were some fish...and maybe people who haven’t been...More
This trip today was a nightmare from the word go.
Firstly the tickets are a haggling process with the men at the front agreeing to $300 TT for 5 adults and a child. This was renegged to $350 TT later.

We arrived at Pigeon Point looking for a Buccoo Reef tour as recommended by local friends.
As soon as you arrive at Pigeon Point, different people will walk up to you asking if you want a tour.
We were promised a tour of the reef,...More
Yea the reef is dying but it's still beautiful. The rough seas will be due to the time of the visit and the tide. If you the boat from buccoo reef you can also go snorkeling on the sand there are small reefs along the...More
I am a scuba diver and have seen significant reef around the Caribbean sea and wanted to give my wife and her niece and nephews (non-divers) an opportunity to see some underwater reef formations and wild life in a near shore and relatively shallow ocean...More

You won't need a car seat on the Cool Runnings boat that my wife and I went on in December. If you want to snorkel then obviously someone will need to stay with your son. The trip that we were on also visited the Nylon Pool, which is nothing more than a shallow bank just past the reef, and families did take their young children off of the boat there for a short while.

There are tour operators right outside of the park and there are tours that leave from Store Bay. All the tours that I saw seem to have two times. One usually around 9 or 10 am and a second tour around 2pm. The cost is 100TT/ person for the tour and 20TT/ person to get into Pigeon point. A taxi would be your best bet. The tour it's self it pretty short cause the reef and the nylon pool are right beside each other. Just depends how long the tour operator gives you at each place. Hope that helps!
