They discovered that the best sites off the coasts of this tall tower of an island tended to be deep. Some of the best divers with the requisite experience loved them.
The owners feel that a multi-island dive/cruise itinerary which offers St. Maarten, Nevis, St. Kitts, and Saba offers clients a top value island visits combined with powerful reefs.
What this means for divers is that Caribbean Explorer offers divers, non-divers and snorkelers a rich menu of varied adventures. During a week aboard the ship you may dive as much as you wish, or intersperse your diving with trips ashore for the benefit of non-divers in your party.
The islands, moreover, are wonderfully varied. St. Maarten is a major tourist center with a vast array of facilities, while Nevis, St. Kitts, and Saba are small, charming and relatively undeveloped.
Shallow reefs in this quadrant of the Caribbean have unusual tube worms, sponges and other invertebrates that will add striking colors and textures to your photographs. Fish are abundant, with all major Caribbean species represented.
Diving on Saba's deeper pinnacles has drawn many divers to these cruises. From eighty-foot depths downward, the pinnacles feature huge fans plus exciting encounters with rays, schooling jacks, sharks, and barracuda. Divers who have experienced only the shallow reef crests of other Caribbean reefs will be thrilled to drop down through eighty-feet of blue water to the first touch of coral. All over the world pinnacles which soar up from abyssal depths seem to attract larger pelagic creatures.
For those of you who have experienced a variety of well-known Caribbean dive destinations, Caribbean Explorer's cruises to Saba may be just that next adventure you're seeking. Go beyond the crowds at Cozumel and explore the Caribbean's last frontiers.
