Comments Our first trip to Saba, and we loved it so much that we've already booked to return in October 2003! Sea Saba Dive Center is FIRST class! In addition to great diving, they'll make dinner reservations and insure driver's to transport you. Boats are first rate! Captain and dive master gave good pre-dive briefing. Reasonable safety measures taken; the viz is great; beautiful corals; sponges; fans; and fish. Third Encounter Pinnacle is breathtaking, the top of the pinnacle is at 80'. Some great shallow dives, too. If you want to get away from the city; crime; and pollution, this is the place to really relax. Hike the rain forest, the top is at almost 3,000'.
