We loved or dive vacation to Saba in 2014 and now we are pleased to offer a liveaboard vacation onboard M/V Caribbean Explorer II to allow us to really get some dives in. The Northeastern Caribbean is an intriguing area offering a blend of Dutch, British, French and native cultures on some of the most scenic islands of the Caribbean.
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.
St. Kitts offers the widest variety of sites including finger reefs, recent wrecks, and a variety of dropoffs that will capture your imagination.

Itineraries include 5 1/2 days of diving; 2 to 3 days within the Saba Marine Park, and 2 to 3 days at St. Kitts and Nevis. 5 dives daily are normally offered, including night dives. The schedule also provides for up to 3 island tours during the week. There is ample time to explore forts, rainforests, duty-free shops and museums.
Nitrox is available; tanks are filled in place between each dive, so that there is never any need to disassemble your gear. If you are interested in touring the islands, other guests' can continue diving. We can also arrange additional time ashore to hike the rainforest-covered mountains, horseback ride on the beach, or even play golf.
The Caribbean Explorer II comfortably accommodates 18 passengers in 9 double staterooms, all of which have private bathroom facilities. The vessel features a semi-enclosed, air-conditioned salon on the upper deck including dining tables, TV, CD/DVD, video library, light table and lounge area. A large sundeck with lounge chairs is aft of the main salon. The vessel's boutique is located on the main deck, and the photo/video lab is below decks. The large dive deck is equipped with a bathroom, individual gear lockers, camera table with low pressure air hose, recharging station, air and nitrox filling stations, tank racks, and a separate fresh water rinse for both scuba and underwater camera equipment. There are two sets of stairs accessing the dive platform, where two in-water ladders hang for easy access to and from the water.
Our dives will be done from the vessel itself. Entries are usually made from the side exit gates into the water, a drop of 5 feet or so. Dives are offered at scheduled times, up to 5 times daily! Water temp will range between 78 and 80 degrees.
