Saba is somewhat different, being a volcanic island with coral encrusted
rock rather than true coral reefs. There are not casinos or beaches.

Saba Deep is pure valet diving; hand over equipment before the first dive,
don't touch it between dives and they drop it off rinsed and dry after the
last dive. Due to calms winds we dove on the windwardside and found Core
Gut to be a fantastic wall site. As well the various pinnacles are a unique
experience. Attitude of Saba Deep was very pleasant and they are clearly
running a shop for individuals/small groups who love to dive. Boat returns
to dock in between dives (3 dives per day). They were happy going out with
only the two of us.

Orchid Cottage at Juliana's in Windwardside makes for a pleasant home and
it was nice to have Tropics right next store for food. We also did take
away from some of the local restaurants.

Saba is a great place for a very relaxed diving vacation.
