We stayed in Cats Eye Cottage arraged by Mike Myers of Saba Deep.  It is at
the end of the road up a hill, a nice walk for working off dinner. 
Vincent, our taxi driver also arranged by Mike picked us up at the cottage
and dropped us off after diving.  Vincent also drove us to dinner one night
and told us all about Saba.
First dive is a deep dive and after the first day we elected to do the
second and third dives as one of our group went into deco. There was a
large group from St. Martin so the boat was crowded on the first two dives.
 Usually only 5 or 6 were on the third dive.  Big Mike set up tanks and led
dives as did Oliver. Good dive briefing.  If you needed assistance they
were there but you could basically dive your own profile. We especially
enjoyed Hole in the Corner on the windward side of the island. Diamond Rock
was another favorite.  
Be sure to go to the Swinging Door barbeque.  Eddie and Pat are excellent
hosts.  The Gate House, although more expensive than other restaurants, was
not unreasonable and well worth it. 
Saba is a beautiful clean island.  The people are extremly friendly and
would not hesitate to return.
