Comments Saba is a wonderful place to dive. Saba Deep is a great operator. They really took care of us and all with a big smile. Mike and Mike have been on Saba for about as long as anyone can remember and they know the Saba dive sites as well as they know their own backyards. They are fun people, very accommodating, and good divers.

Saba is for divers and Dutch folks on holiday. It's pretty quiet there, has no beaches or nightlife to speak of, but the diving is world class. They are extremely serious about maintaining the marine park and it shows.

We stayed in Effie's Cottage. It rained day and night and the roof leaked. Under normal conditions, I'd highly recommend Effie's. I've also stayed at the Cottage Club and would stay there again too.

I hope Saba stays a secret!
