No mosquitoes and No no see ums- what else do you need to know?!!  Lynn,
the co-owner of Sea Saba, welcomed us on arrival with a warm-hearted and
very informative description of her operations.  Then things got even
better.  Sea Saba's service is shown by two examples:  1) every single dive
plan ended with the comment "dive your own profile, but please stay
within your no-deco limits, and we will be in the water for you to lead you
to the boat"; and 2) one day 8 divers were at the dock and Sea Saba
split us into two separate groups, taking out both large boats (each with a
freshwater rinse- yea!), in order to ensure that the experienced divers
went to the "power sites," while the newer divers could be more
shallow.  It was amazing to me that they were willing to spend money on
extra fuel to serve their different divers' needs.  Diving on the Pillars,
Diamond Rock and Man 'o war was as close to big ocean pacific diving as you
can get.  Absolutely pristine coral because of their 80+ depths, protected
from storms.  The coral underhangs of Tent Wall, because of their inverted
slope, had zero storm-settled sand on them, and were stunning in their
variety.  One of the shallow 3rd dives, Labyrinth, was a bit too
sandy/rocky for my taste, but it still had a huge variety of nursery and
Caribbean life, just like all of the sites in this marine park.  On a 3rd
dive site, Torrens Point, my wife and I were led by wonderfully friendly
Kelly through some absolutely magical shallow swim throughs.  Excellent
accomodations choices (I recommend a stand alone cottage for couples) and a
variety of quality stand-alone restaurant choices are all available. 
Hiking in the jungles is fantastic.  Every morning started with a
"check in" question from Sea Saba mgmt- "What can we do to
help you enjoy yourselves today?" and every dive day ended with a
similar debrief.  This was an incredibly enjoyable trip, on a fascinating,
peaceful and safe island, with an amazing level of concierge service from
Lynn and Sea Saba.
