Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Charlotteville Bay
A decent dive site and ideal for beginners as the access is very easy and the depth very limited. Visibility is good and at flooding current there seems to be a lot of live in the area. When no current is in the bay the biomass is somewhat limited but still interesting with a lot of brain coral, many tropical fish, one huge permanently resident sea turtle and the likes. The setting is out of this world as you will dive in a bay I can only describe as a "green emerald" just outside the idyllic town of Charlottesville in Tobago. Just behind the rock there is a beach with a resident fisherman who has been fishing there for more than 20 years and is always happy to advise on species and best times to see them. This dive site is easy to access even swimming from Charlotteville Beach. It consists of a dry rock and a lot of underwater rocks around it. It is situated in one of the most beautiful bays in the southern carribbean with lots of forest all around it. A very beautiful setting and ideal for beginners as max depth is only about 10m and visibility is excellent on most days althought the water seen from abobe gives the false impression of beeing mirky. It is best to swim or go by boat to about 20m of the rock from seaward and then dive down and around. Diving around the rock to the shoreward side it is possible to see a huge leatherback seaturtle which seems to have taken permanent residence there.
