Saba Trip in February

Rising steeply from the Caribbean Sea, Saba is a special island that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Four small villages are as quaint and charming as the people that you will meet. Saba is a monument to nature’s best above and below the ocean’s surface.

The famous Marine park is second to none. Lava tunnels and hot springs remind divers of the dramatic volcanic beginnings of the island. The small leeward side hosts spur and grove reef formations but it is her pinnacles that have made Saba famous. The pinnacles are actually the summits of underwater mountains, beginning at around 85’ and extending deep into the abyss. They are awesomely impressive, not only to divers but apparently to the larger fish and pelagics that are frequent visitors. Read more about Saba Trip in February

Egypt and Red Sea

These are a collection of updates from the Dive Utah Facebook group -

After an 8 hour layover in London where we saw the best of the sights from the Big Bus Tour, we landed in Cairo. 2 hours of sleep later we flew south to Abu Simbel to see the temple there and back to Asswan to board our cruise ship down the Nile. We stopped at few temples/ruins along the way and got off this morning in Luxor. Read more about Egypt and Red Sea
