As we journeyed up Mount Scenery the vegetation starts to change. Beautiful petals on the floor as we climbed up.

Turtles always make our dive days. Saba has these large eel gardens which look like little plants. Its amazing to watch them, they all move in different directions and when an object passes too close they disappear into the ground.

Saba's Coast

Saba's coastline is very jagged with barely any beaches. This allows for dives sites to be minutes away from the shore while still providing 100 feet depth dives.
