Saba is a beautiful lush green clean small island. No litter or mosquitoes
as they work to minimize both.  The restaurants were GREAT and usually a
special somewhere each night...went to Y2K, Brigadoons, and Swinging Door
for dinners and Tropics for breakfast and had lunch often above Saba Deep's
operation, ...all had FANTASTIC quality...Best food we ever had on a

Juliana's Orchid Cottage was way more than the two of us needed with
beautiful deck looking over ocean,(TV VCR etc), with real neat outdoor
shower and toilet room... VERY PRIVATE..

Mike Myers and Big Mike ran the best dive operation we have ever
experienced. Big Mike seems to organize all your equipment before and
between and after dives without you even noticing while relaying great
stories... and keeping the short boat rides FUN. 

Pre-dive descriptions great, usually 6-8 divers, & boat is designed for

dive as many dives as you wanted, usually 3 per day and night-dives if

Above water, hiking is also very nice and the Sandy Cruz trail is a must
for last non-dive day (if you bring your bathing suite, end hike with nice
lunch and swim at the Queens Garden!).

We would love to go back to Saba again.
