Saba National Marine Park, Fort Bay

(5/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
Dive in the protected and diversely inhabited waters of Saba National Marine Park, a 5 sq mi (13 sq km) designated diving zone, consisting of around 20 dive sites. Sharks, eels, and sea turtles among a vast array of colorful fish are regular visitors to these reefs which burst with life. The island had the foresight to protect these waters in 1987, giving them the chance to thrive. This being the case, you cannot dive unaccompanied here, but you'll find plenty of well established dive shops on the island to fulfill this need.

  • I visited this island for the diving, which was superb. Coral encrusted volcanic rock formations rather than a reef; but very beautiful in all aspects. Fans, hard and soft coral, sponges, sharks, rays...  more »
  • Diving on Saba is top thanks to the Marine Park. It is so very important to protect the oceans with all residents in it so I'm super happy that a mega-sized area around Saba is protected where so not may be fished, not anchored can grow, and where no jet skis and other noise making engines welcome. Diving schools sail normal/slow to the dive sites and make you clear that nothing can be destroyed, the animals should be left alone and that you are not allowed to carry on board after your dive. Everyone on Saba is proud of their reserve. In the port of Saba is a building of The Marine Park where you postcards, books, clothes and other things you can buy. There are also lectures including Paul's Human where we at might be before we went diving. Access free. Friendly staff. Water cooler for (free) water.

  • With about 20 dive sites to choose from, all within 10-30 minute boat ride from the harbour, you can't go wrong. There's something for everyone - three dives a day is very manageable for several days ...  more »
