Trinidad
Deep-Sea Fishing
Bluefish, kingfish and Spanish mackerel are plentiful in the waters off the coast of Trinidad during the summer. Winter fish are Wahoo and sailfish.Contact Caroni Tours (Ph: 645-1305) or the Trinidad & Tobago Yacht Club (637-4260) to schedule excursions
Scuba Diving & Snorkeling
Diving is best on Tobago, however, Tobago Dive Experience (Ph: 639-0191) at Grafton Beach have a good dive operation. Snorkeling: Balandra Bay, Manzanilla and Cocos Bay are among the loveliest.
Golf
A very good game can be found at the lovely 18-hole course at the St. Andrew's Golf Club (Ph: 629-2314) in Maraval just outside of Port of Spain. Both Brighton Golf Course and Chaguaramas Golf Couse (Ph: 634-4349) are 9 hole courses.

Scuba Diving & Snorkeling
Dive Tobago Limited (Ph: 639-0202) is the longest established dive facility on the island. Equipped with boats, dives on both the Atlantic and Caribbean side of the island are available. The place to snorkel is Buccoo Reef, but we found the waters at Arnos Vale Hotel and Blue Waters superlative.

6 miles from Scarborough is an excellent par 72 course with breathtaking views - worth a trip just for the view - and a beautiful 18-hole course at Mt. Irvine Golf Club (Ph: 639-8871).
