From
$100.00 USD

Enjoy pickup at select St Maarten hotels (available Tuesday through Friday) or make your way to Pelican Marina in Simpson Bay to begin your eco adventure.

Board the ferry to Saba and enjoy being out on the open Caribbean during the journey, which takes between 75 and 90 minutes. When you reach the dock at Fort Bay, choose to explore the island on foot or by taxi. The walk from Fort Bay to the first stop, a village called The Bottom, is very strenuous, and it is recommended to hire a taxi. The views of the surrounding landscape and seascape from the Bottom are fantastic. 

Hiking in Saba's indigenous rainforest is accessible through trails that start at Windwardside. Mt Scenery Trail is the most popular, and you can get a trail badge for a $USD3 donation to the Saba Trail Shop. You can arrange pickup with your taxi driver at a later time to return to Windwardside or the ferry landing at Fort Bay. 
Stop at one of the small restaurants in Windwardside for lunch. Stroll through the quaint village, filled with whitewashed cottages, narrow lanes and very friendly locals. Peruse the few shops selling local crafts such as hand blown glass, jewelry and artwork. 
At the end of your day in Saba, return to the ferry terminal to catch the boat back to St Maarten.

Nice way to quickly see Saba. You have more than enough time to climb Mt Saba in the process.

Unfortunately we chose to go on a day that started with 10 -12 foot swells so a few people got seasick on the way and a lot more on the way back. The Captain and crew were great , very competent and a good supply of cold drinks. The 90min trip was over 120 both ways but most likely due to the sea conditions. We had not booked a taxi tour but there were some at the pier to pick up people like us. The views were spectacular, with clouds streaming by you as you take pictures,. Great location if you like hiking and are fit enough to enjoy. The food was good and good selection. All in all a great day. I would mention that people can book a taxi tour or offer as part of this package - just makes it a little easier. The people of Saba were great had a lovely day.
