Comments [None]We have visited Saba repeatedly(15 +/-) over the last 15 years and are continually amazed at how they have maintained a consistent commitment to excellence. This time I traveled w/ a Midwest dive buddy and my now 26 year old son who learned to dive in Saba at age 11. Over the years, Having known approximately 50 different divemasters at SeaSaba, the owners ability to hire the best professional underwater guides/boat crew is truly a testament to their continued success. The boats are top notch by ANY standard and in excellent maintained condition. The Pinnacles never fail to impress w/ the"Needle" being my favorite deep, and "Man O War"my favorite overall Saba dive...a hard bottom(70') pinnacle w/ a safety stop at the mooring. The overall biomass is outstanding ....in fact , my buddy was amazed at the positive difference after just returning from another well known Caribbean destination. His words:"No comparison...much much better"

We will continue to visit Saba and dive w/ SeaSaba in the future!
