“We discovered Saba and new friends! I fondly remember the island of Saba, where you arrive a friend, and leave family. Never have I traveled to a place so serene and fulfilling! Life is simple there, without the stress of any ladder climbing careers, defined only by the satisfaction of a life well lived. All the signature dive sites of Saba involve the pinnacles which rise from the depths of the ocean to within 30-70 feet of her surface. On those magical days when the conditions are perfect, you are likely to find a “Gone diving” sign in the window of the shops as locals bask in the majesty of the sea.”
When I tell folks Three Chicks Diving is hosting a trip to Saba, the first question is “Where’s that?” Well, I don’t know about you, but I kind of like traveling to places not on the radar of the occasional traveler. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, without mega-resorts that have thousands of rooms, without cruise ships disgorging thousands of passengers, and a place without glitzy shopping districts; If you seek a trip where you make life-long friends by the end of the week, my friend, you are in the right place. Let me introduce you to Saba…
A breathtaking emerald island in an aquamarine sea, Saba is a world away from the cares of the modern world, yet close by in the Caribbean Sea. Seductive. Unforgettable. Unspoiled. The entire population of Saba is only 1,400. A busy tourist week is 50 guests.
A large portion of Saba is uninhabited… Some people arrive by air from Saint Maarten, but if it’s windy, landing may be a little tricky. So, we will be taking the ferry from St Maarten to Saba.
Diving the world famous Saba pinnacles is an experience you won’t ever forget.
We will dive with Sea Saba, A PADI 5 Star Dive Resort whose owners really understand the meaning of Concierge
level diving. We will be met at the port and escorted to our hotel, where they will assure we get well settled in, and have a full description of our week’s dive adventures. Sea Saba drivers carry us back and forth from our hotel to the harbor each day. We barely need to lift a finger!
Each dive will be led by a Scuba Instructor with extensive knowledge of Saba and the diverse marine life in her waters. The Sea Saba team is expert at finding all those neat little critters, like frogfish, that like to hide from the tourists.
We will be staying at Juliana’s Hotel–Saba’s favorite!
Unique architecture and the location in central Windwardside make for adorable storybook lodging. The pool overlooking the ocean is divine!
