Join this special 10-Day, 2-Island Classic Trinidad and Tobago birding and nature tour, the very best introduction to tropical birding. This tour is part of the Asa Wright Nature Centre’s 50th Anniversary celebrations and features field guide author and illustrator David Allen Sibley. Well-known to birders and artists, David is excited to share his expertise with you.

Trinidad, with its nearness to Venezuela, offers a variety of birds not usually seen on an island, while Tobago feels completely different — classic Caribbean. Combined, these islands offer a variety of habitats that yield dramatic diversity.

This tour stays at the world-renowned Asa Wright Nature Centre (AWNC) for the first six nights. Join David on the Centre’s famous verandah for incredible birding — if you are new to the tropics, you could see forty life birds before breakfast! Then, spend three nights on Tobago at the pleasant Blue Waters Inn, right on the water.
