Comments Our local Dive Shop (Divers Two in Avon, NJ) was running a group trip (aprox 28 divers) to Saba during the first part of November. My 15yr old daughter hadnít done any ocean diving since getting certified (she had only been in Lakes, Springs, and back Bays), so this seemed like a great opportunity to get some quality diving in. We flew to St Martin (SXM) and caught the Dawn II ferry the same day over to Saba. The Ferry company (Saba C-Transport) arranged ground transport in St Martin, both coming and going, which worked out perfectly. The trip to Saba is about an hour and 45 mins via ferry, but is a pretty ride (although seas were a bit rougher on the way back). The other option is to catch a short (15/20 minute) flight on Winair Ė itís a bit more expense, but it will save some time.
