Cruises to Saba

About Saba

As you approach Saba, the island appears as a pointy, triangular mountain rising straight from the sea. You wonder how pirates ever managed to land their ships here, until you sail around to the airport side of the island, where the slope is gentler and harbors can be found. You may wonder how your ship is going to manage to anchor off this remote, unprotected coastline -- and oftentimes, bad weather prevents a port call from taking place. Once on land, driving the one main road that cuts from one side of the island to the other, you may wonder how people actually live on such steep slopes and in such an isolated area.

Saba, formally part of the Netherlands Antilles, is now a special municipality of the Netherlands (and, as such, boasts the highest point in the Dutch kingdom, the aptly named Mount Scenery). Possibly the biggest reason some smaller, luxury lines call here is for bragging rights and a definite lack of crowds. But the island has attractions in its own right, and is worth a visit -- if you can manage to get to shore.

Why go to Saba?

Pros:

Remote, volcanic island is best known for rainforest hikes, incredible dives and mountaintop views

Cons:

Not a common cruise call, and not a ton for less active folks to do other than take a bus tour

Bottom Line:

If you're not getting active, you're likely just checking a lesser-visited island off your list

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Currency on Saba is the U.S. dollar. For up-to-date currency exchange rates, visit www.xe.com. There is a bank in Windwardside.

Language?

Dutch may be the official language, but everyone speaks English.

Heard great diving but as mentioned above couldn’t get off boat in time to meet the dive operator. Did take a tour of island, not much to it.... Read More

Island of extremes - steep roads hugging the side of mountains. Shortest commercial airport runway in the world.... Read More
