Comments Third trip to Saba and personally I was not disappointed. There was a swell coming in so visibility was not as good as I had seen it in past visits but the crew worked hard to find us good diving. On one dive on a twin pinnacle it was so bad that you could not see your fins at certain points. We dived the same spot a few days later and it was much improved. Lisa and Steven were great, funny, hard working and very up beat. Tons of critters and even some sharks on the pinnacles. Took advantage of a couple of Sea and Learn events that were going on at the time. This is an event that Sea Saba helped get off the ground where they bring in experts to talk about environmental topics, flora and fauna, etc. The Spider Lady was a hoot to say the least. Saba is a great little island that really has its act together. Although dealing with Lynn at Sea Saba it seems like all the good karma on the island stems from her hard work. Were else can you have your pick of great diving, a very well trained crew, an owner who goes out on dives to observe their employees are being safe and showing divers a good time, and have a selections of really top notch restaurants to choose from. Its hard to find a more well oiled machine in the Caribbean than Saba and Sea Saba.
