Trinidad & Tobago Ferry
About a year ago, Trinidad & Tobago purchased two catamaran ferries to make the trip between the two islands. Previously, the ferry journey would dtake 5 -- 6 hours; now? A relatively speedy 2-1/2 hours. And the ferries are actually quite comfortable -- they have full-service snack bars (as well as bars of the more alcoholic sort), spacious seating, and a light, airy atmosphere.
The trip between the islands costs less than US$10 (compared to the US$50 airfare). Definitely worth the ticket price. A word of warning, however: if you're prone to seasickness, better to go ahead and spring for the airfare, or a dose of Dramamine -- the passage between the islands can sometimes get a bit choppy. But if you can handle it? It's a beautiful way to see the islands from a diffferent perspective.
