The most southern of the Caribbean Islands, Trinidad and Tobago is the ideal destination for any cruiser offering boaters not only a safe place to store vessels during the Atlantic Hurricane Season, but this beautiful twin Island Republic offers visitors “a home away from home” with lots to do, explore and enjoy all year through.
During the Atlantic Hurricane Season (June 1st to November 30th), the Caribbean Islands are generally impacted by several tropical storms and hurricanes. However, the islands of Trinidad and Tobago lie south of normal hurricane belts and have only been visited by these storms and hurricanes on rare occasions; making this the ideal location for cruisers and other boaters to shelter from the storms.
