Full description
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 Tropics. 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.

Wonderful guide, beautiful island

We enjoyed the trip. Our guide has lived on Saba most of his life and was excited to share his knowledge of the history, the people, places of interest of Saba. Plenty of time to hike, shop, eat and relax. The return trip to St. Maarten was rough due to the turbulent ocean.

Amazing Trip! Amazing Value!

Best part of our trip to the caribbean. Saba is a beautiful, peaceful island that everyone should see. The tour and lunch package was the way to go as it is a LONG walk to the towns. We went on a sunday so a lot was closed but the tour guide was very helpful and shared so much interesting information. He took us by the restaurant and then dropped us off by the Mt. Scenery trail so we could hike down and told us how to make it to the restaurant when we were done. He then picked us up a few hours later as stated. The Tropics restaurant was beautiful and the food was AMAZING! The owner was so welcoming and friendly and allowed us to enjoy our time on the patio taking in the beautiful scenery. Best trip we have ever done and can't wait to go back again. I cannot speak more highly of our overall experience, the people we met and our trip to Saba
