The coral at the Tobago Cays is dead. That was very disappointing, because we read that it was the most beautiful in this area. And we joint this trip for the snorkling.

One of the highlights of our trip. Tobago Cays is my idea of a proper Caribbean beach and we had a great time there. Its an all day trip starting about 7.00 a.m and about 3 hours each way. However wonderful sailing and the most helpful crew. Very safe.

We have sailed on The Friendship Rose several times with young and now teenage boys. As always this occasion was a fabulous day spent sailing to Tobago Cays. The crew were attentive and professional, the food was excellent and there was plenty of opportunity to swim, snorkel and explore the Cays.

The Friendship Rose is a beautiful almost 50 year old schooner which said out of Port Elizabeth in Bequia. Two trips are offered - one to Mystique and one to Tobago Cays. I took the Tobago Cays one which involves 6 hours of sailing. The sea is a little rough and some people were unwell so seasickness tablets are recommended.... More

I chose not to snorkel but instead had a short stroll in the vicinity and enjoyed time relaxing on the beach watching the comings and goings. My husband did snorkel but it was very... More

We sailed from Bequia to Tobago Cay on the magnificent Friendship Rose. Toby, Andrew and the crew were great and looked after us really well, serving a delicious breakfast as we left Admiralty Bay. We travelled under sail, with a little motor assist , to Tobago Cays, which was amazing. We had lots of time on a beach of soft... More
