With a wide range of beautiful, secure and safe anchorages, Tobago has plenty to offer cruisers. This is a hurricane free destination, unspoilt and quiet, offering tranquil spots to lime away the hours. Away from the sandy beaches, Tobago has one of the oldest designated rain forests in the world and an abundance of flora and fauna - both on land and underwater.

Store Bay Marine Services also offers long term in-water storage at reasonable rates with secure and maintained moorings, 24 hour security and a regular inspection and reporting programme. Throughout this year Store Bay Marine Services will be expanding its range of services and increasing its operations to cover the northern anchorages of Tobago, offering island-wide assistance to cruisers.

Here are just a few comments from some of our customers:

  • "There are no ‘full service’ marinas…in fact there are no marinas at all, nor much in the way of traditional yacht support facilities, apart from the super-helpful John and Katy at Store Bay Marine Services. Even better, the prices of everything are around one third of those in the Windwards"
  • "....we will in fact come down to Tobago again for the installation work, partly as we would like to be as south as possible with the hurricane season looming, but also as the guys at Store Bay Marine Services are able to help us with the welding and perhaps some other jobs without charging the ‘you have a yacht so you must be waiting to be ripped off’ rates that seem to be the norm in most boatyards." Pete & Mel Burch, Yacht Samba
  • "Store Bay Marine Services in Tobago are not only my best friends in the Caribbean, they also organise all the bits, pieces and maintenance needed to keep Calmos running well. They even babysit her when I’m away!" Gordon Dove, Calmos 3
