I’m getting excited about the idea of diving Tobago! I just reading about a few of the different dive sites around there. Mount Irvine Wall is one that seems super exciting! I totally geek out on the little stuff when I dive. I feel like when I started diving it was about the big stuff, but the more I dive, the more I feel like the big stuff is a matter of being in the right place at the right time. It’s big- you won’t miss it. The small stuff however, you need to really slow down and open your eyes. It takes a bit of skill to find, and a bit more to know what you are looking at which makes it that much more exciting!
Also they have an underwater carnival– information for 2014 doesn’t seem to be up yet, but it sounds like so much fun!
– Mount Irvine Wall
A coral encrusted rock outcrop that separates Mount Irvine and Stone Haven bays. Those divers who seek smaller marine species like fire clams, nudibranch, seahorses and brittlestars will love this dive. If your attention is focused on all the macro species, remind yourself to look over your shoulder from time to time as eagle rays and turtle are common sightings too. Like Dutchman’s it is shallow, at around 47ft (14m), and often thought of as a convenient second dive to follow the “Maverick”. However both are wonderful dive sites in their own right and should not be missed.
