Tobago Ferries

For most people, getting to Tobago means riding the ferry

Tobago lies off the coast of Trinidad, connected to the rest of the country by an airport and a ferry dock. For many tourist, taking the slow ferry between the two islands is an iconic part of any visit to this dual island nation.

Riding the Ferries

Tobago relies heavily on ferry service from Trinidad, as it transports many of its tourists to the island every day. This is thanks, in large part, due to the reliable service offered by the Port Authority of Trinidad and Tobago. Guests will be able to take this ferry without much hassle, in both cases docking right in the middle of the action, in either Port of Spain in Trinidad or Scarborough on Tobago. From the dock on Tobago, you will have no problem finding rental cars, taxis, or any other kind of transportation you need.

Scarborough Ferry Port is the one ferry dock in the area. Reach them at (868) 639-2417; you'll find the dock just outside the heart of Tobago.
