Comments Much of the diving [Saba and Statia] was too deep for leisurely dives. Visibility was just okay and there was only one great dive--a night dive which included watching an eel devour a sergeant major. Crossings were very rough. Since they were at night they prevented sleep. This was our first and probably our last live aboard. The cabin was cramped, especially the shower.
