I visited this island for the diving, which was superb. Coral encrusted volcanic rock formations rather than a reef; but very beautiful in all aspects. Fans, hard and soft coral, sponges, sharks, rays, grouper, innumerable colorful fish, etc. Very colorful, very clear water, nice temperature. What was surprising was how beautiful the island was. I didn't make it to the... More

With about 20 dive sites to choose from, all within 10-30 minute boat ride from the harbour, you can't go wrong. There's something for everyone - three dives a day is very manageable for several days without any repeats. If you get a really calm day, as to go to the windward side of the island - the best sites... More

The pinnicles and needles are so fun, just watch your depth, I got caught up in the beauty of it all and was around 120 ft, before I realized it! Diamond Rock is wonderful and if conditions permit you should do everything in your power to get... More

Great diving on lee side. Inscludes unique deep pinnacles. A lot of turtles sharks acotpus and fish. Not many lion fish they told us the grouper and eels seem to be eating them. The hiking trails on island are amazing and no easy task I believe are part of the parks

I must confess, my wife and I have a long time connection here. We have been diving around Saba for years and were involved in a minor way with the establishment and funding of the Saba Marine Park back in the 1980's. The park was established to help preserve a natural resource that was pristine from the parks conception. Back... More

Saba is a wonderful island to visit. The Saba Marine Park works hard to keep the dive sites safe and free from damage. They do the same for the hiking trails that abound the island.

This diving is deeper than most, and is rewarded by sightings of moderate to small sharks and numerous reef animals. Good worthwhile diving, but not great. It is best to be an experienced diver because of the depth involved. The pinnacles are the most impressive sights we saw.
