Sea Saba recognizes that choosing the right dive operation can make the difference between a good dive trip and an extraordinary experience. Our slogan "Dive the Sea Saba Difference" is multi-faceted. Only Sea Saba has two 40' (13m) boats, custom made for Saba's conditions--but that's just one factor.
The Sea Saba Difference
Our status makes a difference
As a PADI 5-Star Resort and SSI Training Facility, our commitment to professionalism and adherence to the highest standards in the industry are a given. Sea Saba’s additional status as a PADI Green Star award recipient and Sea & Learn founding sponsor further demonstrates our genuine commitment to protecting our environment. Meet the Crew to learn more about our impressive credentials but know that we strive to be the best dive guides and simply make sure you have a great Saba experience. At Sea Saba, we remember why you learned to dive--your passion is our passion; let us share it with you.
Although showing our customers a great time is a priority, the many safety aspects of running a dive operation always come first. Our certified "Pure Air", Dependable Equipment and Saba's Best Boats are all part of the Sea Saba Difference. A minimum of two instructors crew each of our boats so that there is always surface support and an experienced in-water guide. Only Sea Saba utilizes a "boat computer" so that we can plan a conservative profile for all divers. We also conduct and document quarterly emergency rescue and safety scenarios. Saba has a hyperbaric chamber that is D.A.N. approved--right at the dock.
We recognize the needs of experienced divers. Most of our divers find diving with our guides a pleasure--knowing they have the knowledge and experience to find more marine life but never overbearing or condescending. However, if you prefer to dive as a buddy team and do your own thing or take an entire dive to photograph a Redlip Blenny, we'll give you that freedom provided you follow our basic safety guidelines. Fair? We think so. We'll neither make you play "follow the leader" nor will we make you come up from a shallow dive to fit someone else's schedule. If you're a novice diver, our experienced instructors will make you more comfortable so that you can experience all the underwater magic of the Saba Marine Park.
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast; our taxi picks you up shortly before 9 a.m. Improvements continue at the Fort Bay, Saba's only harbor, but it continues to be a commercial port. We prefer to share Saba's miracle of nature...between dives, we moor at a calm area where you can gaze at seabirds in the cliffs, snorkel, or chat with the crew and other divers during our ample 60+ minutes surface interval. Our boats return to the harbor about 1:00 p.m. We also offer a daily afternoon dive; no minimums required. Sign up for any of the 3 night dives offered weekly, just 4 divers needed--from ostracods to octopus, opportunistic night feeding big fish and more. We'll not only take you night diving but we'll be sure to organize late dinner plans for you while we're at it.
The Best of the Saba Marine Park
Simply stated, we'll take you to a grander variety of sites in the marine park, doing our utmost to be certain you don't repeat a dive site unless it is your preference. Our vessels are fuel efficient so it's never a matter of saving on fuel or what's easiest for us. One of Saba's tourism attractions is that there is a wide range of sites without the need for long boat rides. Our boats are just the right size, so that we are not restricted by mooring usage but are large enough to handle most any conditions. And for those who really want something different, ask about Sea Saba's 'muck dives'. Be sure to check our clickable dive site map which provides detailed descriptions of each site, a photo and in some cases, a video.
Concierge Level Service
Way back in the 90's, Sea Saba was recognized by Forbes Best of the Web as Saba unofficial concierge. We continue to raise the bar. Our superior service starts at your first point of contact and doesn't let up until our driver takes you to the airport--or some times even after you're home. We make every aspect of your trip go smoothly so that you will join our long list of repeat customers. Our convenient office location at Lambee's Place, on the main corner of Windwardside, allows us to cater to your whims. Want a spa appointment, guided hike, a special dive site request or setting up your underwater engagement proposal? Just let us know and we'll do the rest... we think a great dive trip is about more than just great diving. Since 1985, the Sea Saba Difference continues.
