you're planning a dive trip during the Carnival time period, no
worries! Most Carnival activities take place in the village of The
Bottom so that the serenity of Windwardside will remain
undisturbed. Sea Saba is pleased to coordinate night-time
transfers for divers interested in the party scene at Carnival village.
Our normal policy is to run our diving schedule early on Saturday, The
Grand Parade event (Aug 3), so that our guests as well as our crew won't miss
the fun. Not everyone attends every activity of Carnival but
absolutely no one misses The Grand Parade--from kids to elders,
all of Saba will be lined up! Feeling uninhibited? With a
bit of planning, we may even be able to get you in a Carnival
