If you'll be dividing your time on Trinidad and Tobago between the two islands, utilizing the local ferry service is a great resource. Not only is the service a relaxed and fun way to travel, but it is hard to beat the price – plus, it is run by a government entity making it much more reliable than other privately owned ferries in the region.
The Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago is in charge of the ferry service that runs several times daily between Port of Spain, Trinidad and Scarborough, Tobago. The trip crosses 20 miles of Caribbean Sea and takes about two and a half hours. The travel time is much longer than the 20 minutes it takes to fly, but at about $5 to $6(USD) per adult ticket, many travelers find the extra time to be worth it. Plus, facilities on board include an air conditioned lounge with a bar, so it doesn't take much to convince many travelers that the trip will be enjoyable one.
