Port of Scarborough

When cruising to Tobago, you'll likely dock in Scarborough. It's the largest urban center on Tobago, yet it has a charming village vibe. This capital port city offers sweeping Atlantic Ocean views, beautiful beaches and historical sites that hark back to the island's British Colonial past.

Visit the Botanical Gardens and feast your eyes on a rainbow of tropical plant species. Or walk up to Fort King George, an 18th-century garrison that's perched high on a hill above Scarborough. Take an excursion farther afield in Tobago and explore rainforests and coral reefs in the Caribbean Sea.
