Wow,looks like you hit a bad week. I've done the trip 5 times (Jan 2009, Jan 2010, Jan 2013 and Aug 2014), and got to most of the Saba sites on each trip. Last trip (Aug 2014), did Monkey Shoals at south end of St. Kitts (shallow, but lots of small stuff, sponges, etc.) and some newer sites (sharks and lobsters) not reachable from day boats. Wreck sites (River Taw)& Corinthian are usually dependable for critters, schooling fish, and loners who've taken up residence (eels, turtles, puffers, etc.)
