Comments We were staying at St. Maarten for the week and took a day trip over to Saba. We flew, very easy and quick through the airport. Take the first flight over and last flight back and you can get three dives in. You get to experience the airport landing and take off. They fly low so, no problem flying and diving same day. Check the ferry schedule, does not go every day.

We only dove two dives and they were great. No big animals but, the beauty of the reef was incredible. Every inch of the reef covered in color and health. The geography added to the dive, Pinacle was so unique. Dives are deep, get nitrox or you will get limited bottom time. No beaches or putt putt golf so, not ideal for small children. Tons of great hiking for those old enough.

We only went for the day so, did not use a hotel but, ate at Tropics. Absolutely great food and the hotel it was attached to looked great, Julianas. We definitely want to go back and would stay here.
