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.

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.
