Trinidad & Tobago Yacht Charter Guide

Trinidad and Tobago are a colorful pair of sister islands in the Caribbean that are well known for their rich culture of dance, music, and celebrations. Their classic Caribbean atmosphere showcases turquoise waters that lap upon the golden sand and picturesque coconut trees swaying in the balmy breeze.

Look no further if you’re seeking a luxury yacht charter to a destination worth celebrating. Celebrate in Trinidad & Tobago. These colorful sister islands are well known for their rich culture of dance, music and celebrations. Lying northwest of Venezuela in the southern part of the Caribbean, the two sister islands birthed the classically Caribbean steel-drum sounds of calypso and soca; each boasts unique qualities. There are few places to have more fun during a luxury yacht charter than Trinidad & Tobago.

Both have strong ties to the United Kingdom, but African, Indian, Chinese and French influences can be found ashore. These island nations are notably industrialized and relatively modern for their Caribbean location. Still, both maintained their pristine island beauty for you to enjoy during a Trinidad and Tobago yacht charter.

A signature of these islands is Carnival. Initially brought by French settlers, it has been adapted to its current form. This celebration is held on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday in the Christian calendar and is widely associated with calypso and soca music. Individuals dress in costume and parade the streets dancing and playing music.  The atmosphere is festive and the party can last into the wee hours. This experience, combined with the luxurious amenities of your charter yacht, will promise an unforgettable experience filled with song and dance. Carnival defies description with pulsating music, spectacular costumes, and a euphoric atmosphere.  Bring your dancing shoes and join the party before heading to the tranquil island of Tobago for something more relaxing.

When the celebrations end, Trinidad has much more to offer. Port of Spain, the island’s capital, is ripe with activity. There is an array of culture busting to life here; you can navigate cathedrals, temples and mosques that stand side-by-side, showcasing the true melting-pot nature of this island. Trinidad also is host to a myriad of beautiful beaches. Along the island’s north coast, you will find powdery, driven sand with sparkling azure waters that provide a stunning backdrop for relaxation during a Trinidad & Tobago yacht charter.

Smaller and less intense, Tobago is home to many treasures as well. The craggy landscape of the north is due to volcanic origin, while the southern setting is flatter and made of coralline limestone. The lush, tropical rainforest of Tobago is perfect for exploration during a Trinidad and Tobago yacht charter. Golf is a popular pastime in Tobago, which features two well-known courses, Mount Irvine Hotel Golf Course and Magdalena Grand Hotel and Golf Club. If you venture further inland, the Gasparee Caves are also a key attraction, with their blue grottos and awe-inspiring caverns.

Tobago has a very different landscape from that of its larger sister. The island is undoubtedly quieter, with more wildlife, empty beaches and secluded coves. Buccoo Reef, a protected marine park, has fantastic snorkeling spots and at Cotton Bay, you have the chance to see huge leatherback turtles (nesting season is March to August). Tobago also has a lush, tropical rainforest and mangrove-fringed lagoons. Unwind and relax while receiving spa treatments at the Le Grand Courlan Resort.
