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.
