Visit Saba!

Yachting in Saba

We are delighted to welcome you and your guests to the beautiful Unspoiled Queen of the Caribbean, Saba! 

COVID-19 Update as of Nov. 1st, 2020

We are happy to announce that we are now able to accomodate divers to the beautiful dive sites surrounding Saba with our partners at Sea Saba! 

Anchorage Information

Saba's only port is located at Fort Bay, on the south-west shore of the island. We share the small docks with ferries, dive boats, fisherman, cargo and commercial vessels.

NOT CURRENTLY PERMITTED

There is a tender pier which makes bringing your guests ashore a breeze. For safety purposes, do not attempt to come ashore along the coastline. 

For larger yachts, we recommend dropping your own hook in one of the anchorage zones. Click on the Anchorage map for your reference. Ideal locations will very on weather conditions during your visit, however there are some great spots to tuck away in. 

Clearance Information

As your clearing agent we are able to clear your vessel, guests and crew electronically, there is no need to come ashore. Prior to your arrival, please email us your guest list, crew list, passport pictures, the clearance from your last port of call and ship's registry. We are be happy to complete the required local clearance forms. The Saba Conservation yacht registration form lists the nature fees and local restrictions, it must be signed by the Captain.

DIVING with our partners at SEA SABA

This simple approach has been created so that Sea Saba staff will have no physical contact with either the guests or crew of any visiting yacht but still be able to share Saba’s prolific dive sites:

  1. Certification Cards

    • Submit scans or photos of certification cards (front and back, please) must be received in advance of arrival.

  2. Release Form

    • The Sea Saba liability release form must be completely filled out and received electronically prior to arrival (the right side of the form with diver background information is needed to determine dive site choice).

  3. Meet at the dive site

    • ​One of Sea Saba’s 40’ dive boats will rendezvous with the yacht tender at a dive site chosen based on conditions and divers’ experience level.

    • Yacht tender will tie off the stern of Sea Saba vessel; yacht crew member will remain on yacht tender as surface support; Sea Saba crew member will remain on Sea Saba boat as surface support.

  4. Dive Briefing

    • Sea Saba will have a minimum of two experienced dive instructors on board. A detailed dive briefing, including a drawing, will be conducted from our vessel while the yacht crew and guests remain in the yacht tender—close enough to see and hear the briefing but at a social distance of more than 6 feet and wearing masks.

  5. Getting in the water

    • With dive masks on faces and regulators in their mouths, all divers will meet Sea Saba instructor/guide on the surface, at the mooring line and begin their descent. The dive will be guided by one of our experienced instructors.

  6. Getting out of the water

    • Once the dive is completed and divers reach the surface, masks will remain in place and regulators in mouths.

    • Yacht crew on tender will assist yacht divers back on board yacht tender. Sea Saba crew will return to Sea Saba boat.

  7. Rental Equipment 

    • If any rental equipment is required, it will be picked up by one yacht crew person without physical contact—it can be left at a dedicated area of the pier or transferred at dive site.
