Island Details: Saba

Saba, known for its submerged offshore pinnacles, is the 5 square mile top of a dormant volcano towering 3,000 feet above the surface and surrounded by volcanic sand. The abrupt topography above the sea is mirrored below, and the profusion of marine life attests to the early institution of the Saba Marine Park in 1987. The unique topography is home to different species of stingrays, groupers, sea turtles, abundant coral and sponges, and different species of sharks. Who knows… maybe see species of whales and dolphins!
