Islanders call Saba “The Unspoiled Queen of the Caribbean” for its pristine landscape, absence of crowds, chain stores and cruise ships! This unique island only has a population of about 2,000 people and is only 5 miles wide, it is essentially the top of the dormant Mount Scenery volcano. Other than dive enthusiasts and curious travelers, few even know that this island exists. Because of the island’s mountainous landscape beaches are few and far between, but it’s what’s underwater that brings people here. Surrounded by Saba Marine Park, the renowned waters are home to dolphins, sharks and turtles, and underwater mountains created by volcanic activity.

Sea Saba (DI)
Sea Saba will take you to a grander variety of sites in the marine park, doing their utmost to be certain you don't repeat a dive site unless it is your preference. Sea Saba’s vessels are fuel efficient so it's never a matter of saving on fuel or what's easiest for them. One of Saba's tourism attractions is that there is a wide range of sites without the need for long boat rides. Their boats are just the right size, so that they are not restricted by mooring usage but are large enough to handle most any conditions. And for those who really want something different, ask about Sea Saba's 'muck dives'!

As a dedicated dive liveaboard, all diving is done directly off of the vessel, using the expansive dive deck covering the aft third of the main deck. Each diver has his or her own dive gear bin; a large camera table, as well as rinse tanks, wetsuit drying racks, charging stations are available for all to use.
