Sea Saba is an excellent dive operation.  Lynne is very helpful in setting
up your trip.  Researching the flight from St. Maarten to Saba via with Win
Air, their luggage policy seemed to be very limited and expensive.  It
appears that the policies published on web site are an incentive for divers
to pack light.  I was charged $25 for a second bag and no charges for for
the carry on items.

Upon arriving at the airport everything is taken care from there.  There is
a taxi waiting for you at the airport to take you to your hotel.  After
checking in at your hotel you go to the dive office to check in and
complete your paperwork so you are ready to dive the next day.  The taxi
promptly picks you up at your hotel every morning and goes by the dive
office on the way to the boat so you can get any updates for the day.  They
will let you know the dining specials of the day and recommendations where
to eat that night and will even make the reservations for you!  Off to the
boat (15 min ride) and you go for a 2 tank dive.  Typically a pinacle first
(90 - 100') and then a shallower dive for the second dive.  The surface
interval is done on the boat.  The dive guides are very knowledable and
able to find unique specimems on the reef. We saw a frog fish, sea horse,
octopus, and maiting squids.

An afternoon dive is also available if you want to dive more and they are
very agreeable in scheudling night dives.

If you plan to hike Mt. Scenery while at Saba be sure to plan a day of no
diving due to the elevation of the mountain - 3000'.  There is plenty of
hiking that can be done on Saba.  You could spend 2 weeks on Saba - one
week hiking the other diving!

During the month of Octoboer the Saba community sponsors 'Sea and Learn' in
which they have specialist do an 1 hour presentation in the evening on
various topics.  You also to get to dive with the experts and learn more
about the marine life.

If you are looking for a great week of diving, Saba and Sea Saba is an
excellent destination
