Enjoy a 90 min. Ferry ride to Saba, the "Unspoiled Queen" an Eco-paradise with rain forest hiking, island sightseeing and world class scuba diving. Spend the entire day relaxing or exploring island paradise.
What to Expect
Named the Unspoiled Queen, Saba is an Eco-Paradise and quite the getaway for avid divers, hikers and nature enthusiasts. She is as beautiful on top as she is underneath. Edge ferries provide a regular schedule year round – Wed through to Sun each week. The journey is 75-90 minutes, and docks in Fort Bay, the only proper access to the sea on Saba.
Taxis meet the passengers at the boat and tour up into the island. First stop is a village called The Bottom, on up to Windwardside, where the trails start for hiking and tours continue over through Hells Gate with a look down to the airport, precariously balanced out on a lava overflow. Taxi tours are the only way to get up and into the island as the walk up from Fort Bay to The Bottom is vertical and strenuous. The views are spectacular. The hiking in Saba's rain forest is not to be missed with the main trail, Mt. Scenery, being the most popular.
Edge offers a convenient optional lunch and tour package for guests. US$35 pp includes the taxi tour, time for hiking and lunch at Scout's Place. Great for first time visitors and those looking for a way to spend time while their spouses dive. Saba is a day-trip with diving and packages for couples and families with different interests.
Scuba Diving in Saba is world renowned. Many divers will ensure that a day trip to Saba is part of their dive vacation plan. All dive shops offer the highest standards of service and professionalism, and meet the divers as the ferry arrives.
Saba is very unspoiled and a refreshing change from the cosmopolitan hustle and bustle that St. Maarten and St. Barts provide.
