Looking to get a dive trip to the Caribbean in before the end of the year I called my travel agent and told her I want to go to Tobago. I had been there about fifteen years ago and enjoyed the island, the diving and the people so much I promised myself I would go back some day. This trip was even better because my travel agent (who is the best) sent me to Manta Lodge to dive with Sean and his great dive staff. Sean has a great reputation, with the best diving on the island in his front yard (if not the whole Caribbean). While I was there I saw people coming from the other end of the island just to dive with him (and in some cases other dive lodges). The hospitality at the lodge was great. It’s a family run place and they make you feel like one of the family. The rooms are very simple, clean and comfortable – who needs more when you’re there for the great diving. My room had the best view I have ever had while staying in the Caribbean, and I can only imagine all the rooms had views equally good. On my last day the lodge arranged for me a trip into the rain forest and around the island near Speyside with Kenneth, a very experienced guide. He was very good about showing me things in the forest. He catered the tour to what I was interested in and set a pace suited me. As we traveled through the towns and attractions he seem to know every one, and I was introduced to every one. A day trip like this is a great way to see the island and meet some of the friendly people who live on Tobago. I highly recommend Kenneth as a guide. The bottom line is Manta Lodge (and staff) + Sean = Great dive trip!
