Welcome to DiveTnT. We offer personalised dive training and tours in Trinidad - Down the Islands and in Tobago - Charlotteville.
At Dive TnT you will meet a group of people who genuinely enjoy being in and around the Ocean and diving !

Our promise to you is to assure safety on all trips while having the most fun we can.
The staff at DiveTnT Ltd includes : Ron (Instructor and Tank loader), Chris (Divemaster & Captain), Chad (Captain & Diver),
Junior (Captain & Mr. Fix It).

We all love diving. We are down as long as possible and do not rush our divers back into the boat, we stay down as long as we can (conditions permitting), always surfacing at no less than 500 psi, and back on the boat with minimum 300 - 400 psi. We do not ask divers to carry tanks or even make long walks with tanks on your backs, this is not what you come to us for, and we would rather not see you get hurt doing this ! We believe diving should be fun and safe for everyone. Similarly you will use a ladder to get back into our boats and we do not allow you to climb the ladders with your gear on !

The Diving : We have resumed dive activities in Tobago and are based in Charlotteville, Tobago again offering the best of the North side in diving, i.e. St. Giles, Charlotteville and Sisters in the Caribbean Sea and Speyside in the Atlantic.
We also dive in Trinidad, so long as the water is reasonably good in terms of vis and temperature.
We dive Tobago on weekends as per calendar, we also do day trips from Trinidad.

Our boats include a 32 foot / 9m "Bowen Pirogues" with two (2) 75 hp engines, and 36 foot Deep Water Marine Boat with two (2) 150 hp engines, which afford us lots of room for gearing up, for yours and our safety we carry the following on board the boats :

Dive Trinidad & Tobago Posted Apr 10th 2006 9:48AM by Karen Walrond Filed under: Scuba Diving, Trinidad & Tobago
On Thursday, my family and I will be going to an Undisclosed Location* to spend the Easter holiday diving. Because it had been three years since my previous dive, as Easter approached, I began to get more and more nervous about the prospect of going underwater. What if I forgot everything? What if a Great White Shark came out of nowhere and ate me alive? What if -- not out of the realm of possibility -- I just forgot to turn on the air in my tank? In order to help mitigate some of my nervousness, I decided to ask a friend of mine who was currently taking a scuba diving course if I could tag along with her on her certification dive. She was taking her course with Ron Tiah of Dive TNT -- clearly one of the best scuba schools on the island. Ron kindly allowed me to join his group today, and join them for two dives "down de islands." The day started out promising -- there wasn't a cloud in the sky, and Ron is clearly a diving pro -- safety is his primary concern, immediately followed by ensuring that his divers have a good time. On both dives we did today, he prefaced each one with a thorough safety briefing, but also with a little bit of history and local lore about the area and dive sites. Three of my five diving companions were from overseas; however, because of Ron's thorough research, even I learned new bits of trivia about my homeland. Truly entertaining. The only disappointment of the day came with the water clarity. Trinidad is located about 9 miles off the coast of Venezuela; and because of Venezuela's Orinoco river, a lot of algae ends up being deposited in the seas around Trinidad. The water, therefore was quite green -- great for attracting sea life (we saw many turtles, eels, lobsters and large fish), but horrible for visibility. Ron says that today's visibility is one of the best he's seen in months. I shudder to think. I'm told, however, that Tobago diving conditions are world's better -- some of the best in the world -- and conveniently, Ron runs an operation there, as well. Still, mission accomplished -- I definitely feel much more comfortable about my skills as a result of today's dives, and am ready to hit the Undisclosed Location with considerable gusto. However, my recommendations for people thinking about diving in Trinidad & Tobago: 1) If you're interested in becoming PADI certified, and you happen to be in Trinidad & Tobago, you can't do better than Dive TNT. I've been diving all over the world, and Ron's group are extremely safety conscious, coupled with an enthusiasm and an easy-going attitude that is hard to beat. You'll love learning from them. 2) If, however, you're already certified, I'd skip Trinidad and take the 15-minute flight to Tobago, where dive conditions are much more favourable. That said, I'd still recommend you hook up with Ron -- you couldn't be in better hands.
