Man o'War Bay, Tobago
Man-O-War Bay offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling locations in Tobago. There are two small reefs located off the beach at Charlotteville, as well as two larger within the bay. One is Booby Reef and the other is Pirate's Bay reef. Pirate's Bay is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in Tobago.
The snorkeling, swimming and scuba diving are fantastic all year round. The dry season, between February and August, is the best time of year for snorkeling in Man-O-War Bay. By then, the heavy rains from the wet season have ceased and the waters are calm and clear.
