Blue Waters Inn Jetty to Adventure in Tobago
If you’ve ever enjoyed an adventure-filled trip to Tobago, then this is likely a familiar sight. You’re looking at the jetty at Blue Waters Inn, prime jumping off point to Tobago’s more notable natural attractions. Legendary dive sites – Japanese Gardens and Kelleston Drain among them – are just short boat ride away. Some of the region’s finest bird watching is too.
Little Tobago, aka: Bird of Paradise Island, lies dead ahead. A nature sanctuary since 1926, Little Tobago’s network of hiking trails bring visitors up close to a wide range of exotic birds. The Red-billed Tropicbird, Audubon’s Shearwater, Brown Booby, Brown Noddy, Sooty, Bridled Terns, and White-tailed Tropicbirds all make their home here.
If you never leave the Blue Waters Inn jetty, though, you’re still bound to see some pretty amazing birds at this resort. Blue Waters stretches across 46 tropical acres, which seem very much preferred by the colorful and distinctly long-tailed Motmot.
On my last stay here several years ago, Motmots joined us for breakfast. They danced about the dining area, stopping to pose every so often among the trees that line the beach toward the jetty and the promise of bigger adventures to come.
