Comments 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 holiday.

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 easy comfort. Dives all great and they checked where you've been to ensure variety and were willing to change location if needed based on actual conditions...

You can dive at your own pace. Both Mikes dove if needed (or for fun) and respected their marine park, they would go out of the way to pick up any floating garbage (which was rare as very clean everywhere). They would dive as many dives as you wanted, usually 3 per day and night-dives if desired.

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.
