Comments Saba is truly the "unspoiled queen" of the Caribbean. The island is majestic, the people are very friendly and the diving is superb. Unlike much of the Caribbean, the island is very safe and we had no concerns about theft or personal safety. We dove with Sea Saba and found them to be very thorough and professional, yet friendly and down to earth. We were particularly pleased with our dive crew. Marcus, Steven, Amy, Scott and David are all excellent, experienced divemasters and were great company on our dives.

There are a variety of very cool dive sites around Saba. We particularly liked the areas around Diamond Rock and Tent Reef and were thrilled by the shark sightings at the Pinnacles. Saba probably isn't the place to go for beginning divers, though. There are times when the currents can be strong and somewhat unpredictable, but that adds to the excitement for experienced divers.

We are very happy that we chose Saba and Sea Saba for our trip. We'll be back!
