Day 6 Welcome in Paradise, the Tobago Cays
On the sixth day of your Grenadines sailing holiday in Paradise we set sail for the Tobago Cays. The Tobago Cays are a group of small deserted islands protected from the sea by a horseshoe reef. The water and reef colors are a kaleidoscope of gold, blue, turquoise and green.
If you wish, you can snorkel that afternoon with the sea turtles. In the evening we have a barbecue under the millions of stars.
This day we will stay at the Tobago Cays and if you wish Harm will take you for a snorkel trip on the reef, a must on your vacation.
The snorkeling on the horseshoe reef is superb in crystal clear water.
