This was our second trip to Saba and it lived up to our memories.  The
pinacles, although deep, were outstanding; great visibility and great life.
 Current was non-existent.  There were large schools of the colorful
tropicals, sharks on just about every dive plus turtles.  I ran into the
largest tarpon I have ever been in the water with!  Saba is still one of
the best diving spots in the Carribean  

The Orchid Cottage lived up to its billing. Thank you Beth!  Very
comfortable with a great view from the balcony.  Food on Saba has improved
immensely.  Our favorites, Brigadoon for dinner and Tropics for breakfast,
did not disappoint.  Brigadoon has a great full menu.  Eco-lodge was also
very nice.

Sea Saba does a great job and makes every effort to meet everyone's
desires.  Once they were comfortable with our skill level we were able to
buddy dive and explore which was great!  Boat entries and exits were easy
and the boats were very comfortable.
