Closest Airport
St. Maarten
Getting There
Using WInAir - small commuter
planes. I'd give plenty of
margin for connection times as
flights are often delayed
-especially during holidays. 
Air traffic control in SXM
controls it - but would allow
a couple extra hours buffer. 
St. Maarten is overbooked by
every US airline so missing a
connection (during holidays)
means staying an extra couple
of days.  Easy to plan for if
you know in advance.

and those without, and those on air profiles vs. nitrox). Extremely
experienced and situationally aware crew and adjusted restrictions for
actual conditions

This is our second time with sea saba which is a real compliment. For us to

the core ingredient of a long standing dive shop that really
