Location: Saba

From the moment we arrived here in Saba we knew it would be an adventure since the island has many a sheer rocky cliff, and the lowest village here is aptly named ‘The Bottom.’ Today we started the morning off a little earlier in order to get the Advanced Open Water and recreational divers onto Ocean Star. We got picked up by Giant Stride, the Sea Saba dive boat, and made our way to our first dive site. We dove Tent Deep and saw a few turtles, a shark, seahorse and other exciting fish! The Advanced Open water guys and gals did a timed activity on deck and then at a depth of 90 feet to see the difference. Our second dive was on Man-O-War named for the frigate birds that surround the area. The dive was two large rock formations covered in coral and underwater life. Again, we saw a few turtles, one sleeping the other swimming, a stingray and so many other fish of varying colors and sizes. While we were diving, everyone else had a relaxed morning snorkeling around the cave and rocks off to Firebolt’s starboard side. We then switched and the others got to go diving. They also saw some turtles, sharks and loads of fun fish! When the two groups got back together, they shared what they saw on their dives today, while they prepare for the overnight passage back to where it all began: the British Virgin Islands!
