The Yacht Services Association of Trinidad and Tobago (YSATT)

The Yacht Services Association of Trinidad and Tobago (YSATT) is a non-profit organization established in 1994 by the boatyards and marinas in the Western Peninsular of Trinidad, to facilitate the growth and development of the Yachting sector in Trinidad and Tobago. YSATT is the umbrella body for information in the sector for both local stakeholders and foreign visitors.

Tourist Attractions

Trinidad and Tobago is home to many attractive activities that visitors can be immersed in all year long. Activities range from hiking, nature trails, tours of heritage sites, beaches, festivals etc. The possibilities for fun and recreation are endless. Visitors can dock their vessels at any of the many boatyards or marinas available in Chaguaramas and enjoy all the diverse attractions that Trinidad and Tobago has to offer.

For those cruisers who do not wish to vacation or stay in Trinidad and Tobago, the twin island nation is also an ideal one-stop-shop for refueling, provisioning or undertaking any repairs required before continuing along to another destination. Although a twin island state, both Trinidad and Tobago offer unique experiences.

Things to Do: Trinidad

Trinidad offers a wide range of activities that cater to every preference. There are many nature tours and hikes within close proximity to Chaguaramas, such as the abandoned Tracking Station, Bamboo Cathedral and Gasparee Caves.

For the adventure seeker, Macqueripe Bay, also located in Chaguaramas, has a zip line adventure through the rainforest, as well as over the Bay.

In addition, there is the Five Islands Water & Amusement Park. Trinidad's coastline hosts a wide array of spectacular beaches with pristine waters. A favourite is the Maracas Bay, which is a short 30-minute drive through the mountainous and lush Northern Range from Port of Spain, the capital of Trinidad and Tobago.

Things to Do: Tobago

Tobago, on the other hand, is located 20 miles from Trinidad. To get to Tobago from Trinidad, visitors can sail to Tobago or they can remain docked at their boatyard or marina and board a short flight with Caribbean Airlines (the national airline) to Tobago. Alternatively, there is also an inter-island ferry service that can be used to journey to Tobago. Both modes of transportation are very efficient and quite cost-effective.

Tobago is home to the oldest protected rainforest in the western hemisphere and is a bird watcher's paradise. For tourists interested in diving and snorkeling, Tobago's reefs are rich in biodiversity. Popular spots that satisfy these hobbies include Buccoo Reef, Nylon Pool, Pigeon Point and Little Tobago.
