Saba was very nice diving - as good as I have seen in the Caribbean
(although I have not been to Belize, Bonaire or some of the other touted
dive sites).  Very nice coral and lots of fish and critters (lobsters,
crabs, etc.).  We took the catamaran from St Maarten to Saba one morning (a
fairly rough ride even if the captain said it was relatively calm - more
than one person was sick) and dove a 2-tank boat dive that afternoon around
the pinnacle area (although not deep dives) with Sea Saba.  The next
morning we made one dive on the pinnacles (deep dive) and another at the
"hole in the corner."  The coral on all the dives was in really
fine condition with lots of fish.  This was as close to the Red Sea as we
have seen in the Caribbean.  On the dive on the pinnacle, we saw sharks
(one nurse shark and either one reef shark several times or several reef
sharks), lobsters, crabs, etc.  The divemasters were very good - attentive,
careful of the coral and sea life, and fun on deck. Lynn, the co-owner of
Sea Saba, was very helpful in the shop and fun to talk to. Juliana's was a
nice accomodation.  We had dinner at Brigadoon and would recommend it
highly (both the food and the people).  We WILL return to Saba.
