Join East Coast Divers to explore the Caribbean's hidden gem!
February 13th-20th 2021
For those divers looking for the quiet Caribbean, an island with old world charm, look no further! The island of Saba proudly declares itself "The Unspoiled Queen" with no large resorts, no cruise ships and no casinos. Spend mornings exploring the dramatic drop offs, pinnacles and reefs and the wide variety of marine life of the Saba marine park and afternoons and evenings exploring the quaint villages, stunning vistas and local restaurants topside. We'll be staying at Juliana's hotel, an immaculately maintained intimate hotel with all the modern amenities. Diving will be with Saba's premier concierge dive shop, Sea Saba. Don't miss the chance to experience the Cabibbean "the way it used to be."
About The Diving:
Saba’s volcanic origins have blessed her waters with spectacular formations and structural diversity. From shallow patch reefs to deepwater seamounts, Saba offers interesting diving at each depth and for every diver's experience level. The Saba Marine Park ("SMP") was established in 1987. The park was not established to help repair a damaged environment and ecosystem, but rather to safeguard and ensure the continued quality of an extraordinary resource. Saba's small size, 5.1 square miles, and circular shape don't provide it with a large leeward side, but nevertheless, allows diving almost any day of the year even with less than perfect weather.
