SABA DUTCH WEST INDIES- OCTOBER 2020 Saba, Dutch West Indies

Saba, Dutch West Indies

October 3-10, 2020

 Join Blue Octopus Scuba for a 7 day eco-conscious dive and play vacation on the tiny pirate island of Saba, aka “The Unspoiled Queen”, a perfect trip for divers and non-divers alike. Our adventure will include dives in Saba Marine Park, a protected area with diverse colorful coral reefs, pinnacles and a wide variety of sea creatures such as Hawksbill turtles, Southern Sting Rays, Garden Eels, Caribbean Spiny Lobsters and a healthy variety of reef fish. Sightings of Caribbean, White Tip and Nurse Shark as well as Barracuda, Scorpion Fish and Caribbean Octopus are common.Along with the dives, we're invited to attend eco-oriented (mini TED-like) talks through Saba’s “Sea & Learn” program which is held only in October, as well as a ½ day hike through an orchid filled trail overlooking the ocean. For the adventurous, take advantage of the rugged and beautiful hike up the 2,900 foot high Mount Scenary.
