Chaguaramas Bay, Trinidad

The twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago have plenty to offer visitors both on private yachts or those enjoying luxury yacht charters in the Caribbean.

While Trinidad is primarily thought of as a hurricane bolt hole, rather than a yachting destination, it does still offer wonderful wildlife and hiking opportunities. Trinidad also has a reputation as one of the best Caribbean islands to party on thanks to its annual carnival, which takes place on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday.

In contrast, its neighbour Tobago is the perfect destination to explore by luxury yacht thanks to its hidden bays, secluded reefs and beautiful beaches. This week long itinerary allows you to enjoy the best of both islands at a leisurely Caribbean pace.

Day 1 - Chaguaramas Bay, Trinidad

With your yacht safely tucked up in the CrewsInn Marina, take the opportunity to explore the rain forests of the northern mountains with an experienced local guide. Trinidad is a birdwatcher’s paradise with colourful and exotic species from the South American mainland.

There are a wide variety of hiking trails, from the very easy to the extremely demanding, so no matter how fit you are, you will enjoy exploring the waterfalls, caves and rainforest.

In the afternoon, cruise round the north coast to spend the night at Scotland Bay. This is a pretty, tranquil spot but you won'’t spend much time here as it will be an early start in the morning….

Snorkelling on Buccoo Reef

Pigeon Point

After a few hours you will raise the coast of Tobago, and undergo custom formalities in Scarborough — perhaps use this as a chance to go ashore and discover Tobago’'s main town; it has some shops and the historic Fort King George, now a museum.

Leaving the rougher Atlantic side of the island behind, you’ will head just round to the Caribbean side and Store Bay. This is the perfect base to take a tender ride round to Pigeon Point and the lovely Buccoo reef for some wonderful snorkelling.

This is a protected marine park and is one of the most accessible reefs in the Caribbean. Store Bay itself has one of the island'’s most popular public beaches, overlooked by the low-key Store Bay Holiday Resort.

To avoid the crowds visit the beach at Pigeon Point, which is one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. You’ will be charged a modest fee to enter but it has one of the best sunset views in the Caribbean.

Mount Irvine Bay, Tobago

A short hop will bring you to Mount Irvine Bay. The beach here is OK, but can be busy. The best plan is to use this bay as your base (it’'s a secure anchorage) and explore on land and by tender.

If you’ are fond of wildlife, stop off at the mangrove-fringed Bon Accord Lagoon, only accessible from the sea and see what birds and animals you can spot. Golfers can take a detour via the Mount Irvine Golf Course, near Grange Beach, which is one of the best golf courses in the Caribbean with stunning sea views

North of Mt Irvine Bay is Stone Haven Bay, with snorkelling to the calmer North end, the bay has powerful waves an currents. – The primary attraction is on shore and the Le Grand Courlan Spa Resort. This 4-star hotel has the best spa facilities on Tobago.
