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!
