There is a reason this is listed as the #1 attraction in SVG... The Cays were amazing. We anchored here for two nights on our 1 week sailing charter through the Grenadines. There was fantastic snorkeling... we saw sea turtles, rays, nurse sharks, sea stars, a tremendous variety of tropical fish, many different kinds of coral.

The water was great, the views from the top of the hill on one of the islands was fantastic, the Cays are unquestionably a paradise. This is an absolute must visit in any trip to the Grenadines and I would highly recommend doing it through a sailing charter. We used yacht Sudiki and were very happy with them.

“A Day in Paradise: Tobago Cays”
Reviewed 28 February 2013

Anyone visiting Grenada or Carriacou, MUST take a day trip to the Tobago Cays. The way to go....with Sherwin of The Lambi Queen in Tyrell Bay, Carriacou. Sherwin and his crew member, Marlon are dedicated to your safety and happiness. From the time you leave Carriacou you are on an adventure traveling to deserted beaches traveling over multiple shades of glittering blue water, unlike any visual experience you have had. You visit pristine white sandy beaches, swim with the turtles, snorkel with bright tropical fish. A few rum punches along the way and you will all sing happily. Lunch is served on a special island where trays of fresh grilled fish, barbeque chicken, yellow rice, local vegetables and tropical fruits fresh from the tree. After lunch, you are off to Myreau, a tiny island with rustic beach bars and palm trees everywhere. Last stop....Happy Island, the most unique island in the world....built by Jaunty, your host, bartender and DJ. He started with conch shells and just kept adding more and now Happy Island could be your "Happiest Place in the Caribbean" after one rum punch. Just before sunset you travel back to Carriacou, smiling with memories you will never forget.
We know because we go! Yesterday we spent the day with Sherwin and Marlon as our son and his girlfriend are visiting Carriacou and we wanted to share this experience with them.
Do yourself a favor and book a trip with Sherwin when you are around!

Beautiful clear water ,good snorkling to watch the turtles feeding on the grass, nice lobster-dinners arranged by the fishermen ,but a bit too crowded with yachts these days.

“a Must go to place!”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

Spent two days at the Cays and was absolutely knocked out, the snorkelling is amazing, so many turtles, rays and spectacular fish. The first visit was on a schooner called Scaramouche which we boarded at Union Island, which also went to Mayreau, and Palm Island on the same trip. This was probably the best value trip we went on but I can't find any other reviews for it. The second visit was on board the sailing cruise ship Wind Spirit, also a wonderful experience.
