We saw the nylon pool while on a glass bottom boat tour with a local fellow from Buccoo nicknamed "Spaceman". (He also set us up with a jet ski rental) The nylon pool is a very shallow spot right in the middle of the ocean with a sandbar! We stopped here on the way back from the tour and got... More

We booked a day out on the water with Barry of LB Tours. We were picked up at the hotel and taken to the harbour at Buccoo to join our small fishing boat and the five other guests. After a spot of fishing, a cruise down the coast, snorkelling at a secluded bay (only accessible from the sea), cruising with... More

A great experience as previous reviews - standing in 3 feet of crystal water in the middle of the Caribbean Ocean - highly recommend.

I had heard about the Nylon Pool before visiting Tobago and was determined to visit. I looked for a tour operator to book with and emailed to arrange the trip. We arrived at Pigeon Point Jetty and were welcomed by several locals offering boat trips. When the tour representative arrived it became clear that he used the local men to... More

It's quite an experience to stand in 5 feet of water in the middle of the ocean. Strong recommendation to all to visit. While at it, take the sand from the bottom of the ocean floor and scrub yourself with it. Locals say that it will make you at least 10 years younger.

Can you imagine swimming in the middle of the ocean and the water is only waist deep? Well this phenomenon is called the Nylon Pool. It's located off the island of Tobago and as the story goes was given that name by Princess Margaret. She likened the clarity of the water to her nylon stockings. A short boat ride from... More

So there you are far from any land and suddenly, you can stand up in the middle of the ocean. It was fun and light hearted with multiple glass bottomed boats in the area playing music with tourists floating around in the clear, shallow water. Worth a visit, but definitely a tourist attraction.

We had an amazing time visiting the Nylon Pool. The water was warm and had a gorgeous colour. We saw schools of silvery fish and a shadow of the stingray. Since the Nylon Pool is only about 1 m deep, this is perfect for the beginner snorkelers. That was an amazing experience.
