Surrounded by Marine Park, Saba has some of the best diving in the world. With less than 25,000 visitors a year, Saba is a hidden gem with many well maintained hiking trails.
Entering the Kelby Ridge Trail we passed though an entrance made of piled up rocks.
On our hike up Mount Scenery we went the wrong way which lead to this amazing view of Windardside.
Driving on Saba was an adventure of its own. It did lead to breath taking views!
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 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.
Drone got good footage of the bottom of the Kelby Ridge.
As soon as you get off the plane Saba provides amazing views.
We spotted this house on our way up Mount Scenery. Really stands out with the red flower petals.
Views of our Kelby Ridge Hike.
Found the I love Saba sign in the town of Windwardside.
Another turtle on one of our dives in Saba.
With only an hour left of light we got to the tide pools near Saba's airport.
Amazing dives in Saba. This was on our second dive. This dive had so many crevices to dive through.
Climbing through red sharp rocks as well venture towards to tide pools on Saba.
Jessie at the top feeling accomplished, little does she know that she's barely scratched the surface.
As you get closer to the top you start to notice fog. At this moment we have entered the cloud forest of Mount Scenery. Our heads are literally in the clouds.
