Although a shakey ride with 3-5mtr waves Saba was definitely worth while.

The ferry there and and back was wonderful as the ocean splashed from the high speed adventure and the spotting of flying fish! Saba itself was pure serenity surrounded by all that natural beauty. Everyone was friendly starting with the ferry crew, the immigration guys, the Eco restaurant owner, the scuba shop owner, the guy who owned the shop where you get your certificate and the people I met along the way

Saba is a trip into history. The island is volcanic and very steep. It is a paradise for scuba divers . The people are great and the hospitiality is even better. I give it 5 stars.

The trip was excellant, the description is very misleading. It appears that the taxi ride and lunch is included. So we were disappointed that this was not included as described.

Seeing Saba is worth the trip. It is truly an unblemished pearl of an island and a must see.

Saba is a beautiful island with the hiking trail to Mount Scenery. The trail gets extremely steep and slippery towards the top, so bring a walking stick and hiking boots. The 90 minute boat ride to Saba from St. Martin was not too bumpy. On the way back, the ocean swells were 12'-15' and the waves were completely covering the boat. The boat would go into a swell and back out. It felt like I was on a roller coaster. Definitely had to take 3 motion sickness pills on the way back. Just be aware of the very bumpy ride back.

This excursion is done on The Edge boat through the Simpson Bay Marina.

Very different island. Worth the trip. The trail walk to the top was hard work but fantastic view (once the mist was gone).

Saba is a great change from busy St. Maarten. It's lush, low-key, and relatively empty.

3 star rating: Worth doing

The crew was a little stand off-ish. The island is beautiful and the locals are very friendly.

Aquamarine mania is the worst tour group. The driver of the boat went full throttle while text messaging. He provided no information on the island. We get to Saba and find out you have to pay 30 dollars for a taxi to go to the local areas. This was not told nor was it advertised on viator.

Unfortunately, early December is not the optimal time to go on the open seas. The ride to Saba in the morning was a bit rough. The waves were too rough for one passenger who made use of the abundant sickness bags. Unfortunately, the ride in the afternoon was even worse. Dramamine was a blessing.

The island of Saba is impressive; however the 90 minute ferry ride in rough seas made most travelers sea sick.

The "hike" is more like climbing the Washington Monument with no visibility to the great views available elsewhere on the island.

Tropics Cafe was a refuge!!
