Comments This was our 3rd trip to Saba, and diving with Sea Saba. The owner, Lynn, and her staff are absolutly top notch! The dive boats are in good condition, and they were successful in keeping the advanced divers and beginners on separate boats. We didn't experience overcrowding. We had the freedom to dive our own profile. Corals are in good shape. During 5 days of diving, we saw about 12 sharks...4 reef sharks at one time! On the last dive (night dive), I got distracted and dropped my camera. Fortunately, I knew where I was when it was dropped. The following day, Sea Saba boat went back to that site and retrieved my camera from 85'. Diamond Rock is an incredible dive, so much life on and around the pinnacle. We enjoyed every dive. We stayed in Cats Eye Cottage, an original Saban cottage. Even though it's a steep walk up the mountain to the cottage, it's worth it, as it overlooks the village and the ocean. Truely peaceful, secluded, and surrounded with lush tropical greenery and hummingbirds. We'll dive with Sea Saba again.
