Saba Scuba Group Trip

January 12, 2025 January 19, 2025

We have planned an amazing trip to the Dutch Caribbean island, Saba. Ben, who lived on Saba for 3 years, will be leading this trip.


We are going to Saba for a group scuba trip!  The Unspoiled Queen of the Caribbean!  

The island of Saba is often described as having a fairytale quality – in the sense of being in a place where time has all but remained unchanged. You will find no franchised resorts, casinos, or shopping malls. You will however find natural beauty, a warm culture filled with friendly people, and a sense of tranquility and charm. Saba is also one of the safest islands in the World. Feel free to take a walk any time of day or night, while many locals even leave their doors unlocked.

WHY Saba?

Saba is a unique island. The best way to describe this unique island with less than 2,000 residents is to list the have nots: Saba has no crime, no high rises, no traffic lights, no crowds, no fast-food restaurants, no casinos, no cruise ships. Oh, and we almost forgot, no beaches. All diving is from boats.

Ben lived and worked on Saba for three years. He has worked at all three dive shops serving in every capacity from boat captain and dive guide to managing director…and everything in between.


SCUBA diving is the top attraction of Saba and it surely offers one of the top dive spots in the Caribbean, with unique structures to go along with a healthy reef and an amazing under water topography. The Saba Marine Park protects 30 dives sites around the island of Saba.

Ben says we will see sharks and turtles every day/every dive! He has dived all over the world and says the five Pinnacle dive sites around Saba are one of a kind in the world. What better way to dive at one of the most exciting dive destinations in world than with an in-house expert!

We’ll have five days of two-tank dives and an additional afternoon dive, all from the brand new, amazing dive boats that Sea-Saba offers.

Saba Marine Park

For a five-square-mile Island, there sure are a lot of Dive sites!

Established in 1987, the Saba National Marine Park together with the Saba Conservation Foundation has maintained moorings and preserved marine life within Saba’s coastal waters. You’ll have a choice of 30+ varied dive-sites, ranging from easy dive sites for the novices amongst you, and more challenging dives for the more advanced. All of our dive sites are only accessible by boat, but most are only a short boat ride from Fort Bay Harbor with the added bonus of spectacular island views!


Juliana’s Hotel has the perfect location, nestled in the lush hillside in the village of Windwardside, where the days are warm, the nights are refreshingly cool, the birds are chirping, and a gentle breeze flows through your room, suite or cottage! This place is super relaxed and laid-back!  

Juliana’s Hotel is tucked in the hillside of the village of Windwardside, where you are a short walk to some of Saba’s finest restaurants, gift shops, museums, and more. You are also within walking distance of the Mount Scenery stairs, which will lead you to the highest point within the Dutch Kingdom at approximately (3000 feet). On clear days, you may be able to see the neighboring islands of St. Maarten, St. Barths, and St. Eustatius from this breathtaking vantage point. Bring your hiking shoes!!!

We almost forgot to mention that the Bar in the hotel is awesome, it’s the “Tipsy Goat Bar”, where Ben and many others have enjoyed the breathtaking views while having a cold one or a cocktail after diving.

We’ll have breakfast included in our package. There are a lot of dining options around the hotel in the cute village of Windwardside.

Each diver will have the choice between three room categories, Garden View Room, Ocean View Room and the Captain’s Suites.


The Flights on this trip alone are worth the travel. You’ll take-off and land on not only one but two of the most famous airports of the world.

At Princess Juliana International Airport take-offs and landings are basically a few feet above the beach. Most people have seen clips and photos of it…

Saba’s Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport has the shortest commercial runway in the world and it has a cliff on each end. Take-offs and landings are exhilarating with an awesome view.


The trip will take place from January 12th to 19th, 2025. Please notice, this is a Sunday to Sunday trip.

Delta flies direct from Atlanta to St. Maarten daily. After arriving we’ll have to transfer over to Saba on either ferry or “puddle-jumper” plane. We suggest to take the plane, as mentioned above. We are working on a charter flight from St. Maarten to Saba right now. The charter should have enough space for all of us.
