Heading to Speyside & Little Tobago

The drive from Crown Point to Little Tobago or Bird of Paradise Island, involves going down the Windward Road through Roxborough into the sleepy village town of Speyside. Once you’re there, there are two ways you can get to the Little Tobago island reserve.

  • Hire a fishing charter that will cost about $350 ($58USD) each. They will offer a nice guided tour around the island and information you can download from the internet
  • Hire a local fisherman to take you in one of the little pirogues for an adventure filled, bumpy ride across the channel to the private beach and nature reserve. You can negotiate a price with the fishermen for the tour also, in the little pirogue between 150 and 200 TT ($25 and $32 USD) for two people. On a slow day, you can surely bargain harder but do you want to piss off the fisherman who is going to ferry you over rocky waters?

Guess which one, I preferred?
