One of the things we did on Saba was diving. We had no special reason to pick Saba Divers, as we were told that the two dive centers were both good. We were staying in Windwardside and the boat was at the harbour, but the transfer is included. So no need to arrange it yourself. There was also a towel included.
The shop in the harbour was a bit dated, but the equipment is really good. The boot was really spacious, especially with only 4 divers and 2 instuctors. But even with a bigger group, there would be enough room. I also like that there was free ice tea and water, cause we did take some with us, but I always get very thirsty. :-)
When we were on our way, I only realized that I didn't have a dive computer. When I asked about it, I was told you have to check it on the form if you want one (it is not included if you rent your gear). Unfortunately I missed that on the form, but my partner had seen checked it, but hadn't one either! He just hadn't realised that till I asked about it. You have to pay extra for it ($5), but it hadn't been charged, so it had been missed when we were making the reservation.
I was told that I didn't really need one, cause I wasn't diving alone (aka with an instructor) and we wouldn't go very deep. But I have never dived without one and I didn't feel really comfortable without it. On other dives a computer was always included with the gear, so now I know that I have to make sure it is included, because it is not standard. I do think they should inquire at booking if you need one or not. Especially if you are multiple dives on a day. It is just safer and easier.
Apart from that, I really enjoyed it. The dives were not deep, the deepest was 15 meters, but mostly around 10-12 meters. This gave us plenty of time (each dive was at least an hour) to explore the area and to stop and look around. Especially Tent Reef was like diving in an aquarium, so many fish, corals and so much more. The instructors pointed out severall interesting marine live, so they were definitly more than guides!
Would I go with Saba Divers next time? I think I will, because apart from missing a computer, it was really good. The staff was nice, the price was decent, equipment was very good, the boat nice and spacious and the dive spots amazing.
