Saba's beauty extends below the waterline into an exciting marine
environment rich in corals and active with fish life. A busy population of
colorful tropical fish as well as large groupers and jacks live around Saba.
Lava tunnels and hot springs remind divers of the dramatic volcanic beginnings
of the island. The small leeward side hosts gentle, medium depth, spur and
groove formations. Along the edge of Saba's sheer wall dives, divers can sight
turtles and rays of all shapes and sizes.
Since the island is so small, dive
boats can reach all sites within minutes. More>>
Three well-experienced, fully equipped dive operators carry the many
visiting divers from around the globe, to dive sites within the Saba Marine Park
every day. They represent a variety of certifying agencies and will safely
teach all levels of diving. Dive operators combine efforts to assist the park
manager in collecting data and enforcing the rules and regulations.

Saba Deep Dive Center was established in 1981, as the island's first "dive shop". Many years of experience and good diving later, our tradition of personalized service and enjoyment of sharing the natural beauty of Saba, both above and below the surface, continues.
If you have never been to this part of the Caribbean before, you are in for a real treat. The crew at Saba Deep Dive Center specializes in personalized service. That is why Tony, Cheri, "Big Mike", Bob and Evan -- take the time to get to know you -- before we go underwater!
We will do everything we can to provide you, with the best dives that can be had here in Saba: three dives minimum, everyday of the year; small groups so everyone gets the attention they want or need; short boat rides to the dive sites, and, since we return to the harbor between the morning and afternoon dives, the surface intervals can be done sitting in the shade, tanning in the sun or relaxing in our restaurant, In Two Deep.
Want to get certified, or take an advance course? Our staff of NAUI and PADI Instructors love to dive and also love to teach; you can learn how to dive or how to dive better - and have a lot of fun doing it!
We will be happy to help you plan your dive trip/vacation, make reservations at the hotel or cottage of your choice, have a friendly, island taxi driver meet you when you arrive, point you in the right direction around the island, and, of course, take you diving.

In 1987, a marine park was established with permanent moorings, regulations
of use and maintenance and a strong conservation attitude. At that time there
were still few divers visiting Saba. The result is controlled diver impact and
undamaged reef life, a powerful appreciation by locals and divers together of
this pristine environment.
So complimented by this tremendous effort, the Dutch navy donated a four
person recompression chamber, now backed up by volunteers from all the dive
shops. All dive operations abide by the rules of the park and benefit from
their ongoing research and education. Weekly slide shows are given to entertain
and inform divers of Saba's special marine life.
Saba's Marine Park has received several honors and remains the only park of
its kind in the worlds to be completely self-sufficient in its operation.
The park is situated around the entire island and includes the waters and
seabed from the highwater mark down to a depth of 200 feet, as well as offshore
seamounts. A zoning system is applied to get the best possible compromise
between different uses of the marine environment.
Saba is a dormant volcano that rises steeply from the ocean. Depths of a
1000 feet and over are found within half a mile from shore. The nearshore
environs offer some very interesting and extremely varied diving, while the
offshore dives will leave you absolutely speechless.
Saba's Dive Sites
"The government has protected the superb dive
sites of the western reefs with an underwater park system, divers
can enjoy abundant sea life, which is often missing in areas where
local fisherman empty the sea of larger fish."
