We had gone to St. Maarten for a week, and took two days of it to go over
to Saba and dive. We took the Edge (ferry) over and back. Had made
arrangements with SeaSaba Diving, and they are great. Lynn Costenaro took
care of our hotel reservations (Julianas), provided all transportation to
hotel and to dive boat daily, and to the Edge for our return. She even
arranged for sandwiches on the dive boat if we wanted them. Very good to
work with by e-mail, very professional, and great, roomy dive boats. We had
5 to 9 divers on different trips 
Saba island is so cool, a step back in time. They have 1200 residents and
300 students at the medical school. Julianas is a very nice small hotel
with all the amenities, an excellent restaurant, satellite TV (for those of
you who need TV), and wonderful views of the ocean.
Saba is a dormant volcano. It hasnt spewed forth for 5000 years, but at
some dive sites where you can stick your hand into the sand, the
temperature changes and gets warm. Theres still heat down there.
Unfortunately, the area had been having high winds for several days and the
water was choppy with visibility down to 60-70 feet, less than they
normally have. I took my underwater camera and got some great shots, but
didnt see as much marine life as I thought I would. This could have been
due to the very windy conditions over the previous days and churning of the
water. But still, the diving was great, and I am thinking about returning
in the future to try it again.
