Both the dive operation and the hotel were excellent.  Sea Saba made our
dinner reservations every day after telling us what specials were available
that day.  They also had lunch delivered to the boat for us the day we did
three dives.  We usually had four to six divers on a boat that could handle
twenty.  The package included all taxi trips to/from the harbor and almost
everything else was easy walking distance from Juliana's.  Visibility was
poor by Saba standards but it did little to diminish the very healthy reefs
and macro photography opportunities.  The first dive of the day was a deep
pinnacle followed by a shallower reef dive after a minimum one hour surface
interval.  Additional dives could be added the same day if desired.  A
night dive requires a minimum of four divers.  Nitrox was a flat fee for
the entire week.  All dive sites are within 15 minutes of the dock and we
frequently returned in between dives to pick up additional divers that
didn't want to or weren't experienced enough to dive the deep pinnacles.  I
started the week with a 2mm shorty but put it away after finding 83 degree
water.  Hiking is widely available on the island and that's how we spent
our off-gassing day.
