One Giant Stride For Sea Saba...

Saba Marine Park Offers New Dive Site

Saba's Own Sistine Chapel In the Making

One Small Step For Saba...

Fort Bay, Saba - On January 14 after an 8 hour journey from St. Thomas, Captains John Magor and Rob Hurrell docked Sea Saba's new custom dive boat, the M/V Giant Stride, in Fort Bay marking the start of a new era and the new millennium for Sea Saba. John and Rob completed the 115 mile crossing with mixed weather conditions ranging from dead calm seas to mild squalls. On arrival, Rob, a veteran seaman of 25 years, stated "she handled better than any boat I've captained in years, just cutting through the waves without pounding." While Saba's dive sites are at most a short 15 minute jaunt from Fort Bay, this is just one more reason to dive the Sea Saba difference since we sometimes experience choppy seas when heading out to Saba's world famous pinnacles.

The Giant Stride is a 38 foot Delta (John's first choice and almost 44 feet when including her dive platform and long bow sprit) equipped with twin Caterpillar Turbo 3208 diesel engines, two easy exit ladders that allow you to keep your fins on, an easy entry dive platform with hand rail, and a 46 tank capacity. But don't worry about the possibility of a "cattle boat"... Sea Saba will be maintaining our policy of a maximum boat capacity of 10 divers unless larger dive groups specifically request that they stay together.

The Giant Stride also boasts many convenience features including a tuna tower for added deck space, electric flush head, plenty of dry storage space, pop-down dive briefing board, wetsuit rack, four easy dive entry points for backward rolls or giant strides, a fresh water shower and a generous 400 gallon fuel capacity. At the same time, you won't find any safety features lacking on the Giant Stride with a VHF radio, ship-to-shore communications system, oxygen, complete first aid equipement, life raft, life preservers and fire extinguishers.

So Lenny's history, the diving's still great and Saba's premier dive operation now has Saba's premier dive boat... come on down, we're back, we're better than before,  our second new dive boat is on its way and we can even offer you a new dive site!
