Three of The Caribbean’s Most Scenic Islands!
Check one off the diving bucket list! Join Nautilus Aquatics for some of the best diving in the Caribbean as we travel to Saba , St. Kitts, and St. Maarten. We’ll have a week of live-aboard luxury and diving a few steps from your cabin!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 Sea. The variety of the topography and types of sites that we will visit will be sure to amaze you!
Saba Island is nicknamed the “Unspoiled Queen” and it is truly a remarkable place to visit. The marine park is situated around the entire island of Saba and has been completely protected for the last 30 years. The marine environment was protected before diving became popular in Saba, the result is unspoiled coral life and an environment abundant with fish life. You can expect to see a wide variety of reef fish and pelagics such as schools of blue tangs, goatfish, parrotfish, large Nassau groupers, horse-eye jacks, turtles, and of course a variety of sharks.
Scuba Diving and snorkeling in the turquoise blue waters of St. Maarten varies from beautiful and healthy reef systems to well preserved and fantastic ship wreck diving! On the wrecks and reefs you will encounter a huge variety of marine life; from tiny coral shrimp and nudibranchs to Hawksbill turtles and everything in between.
Is not a destination that many divers have visited. It is, however, an excellent choice for divers of all skill levels. The islands are a part of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles and are near better known destinations of St. Martin and Saba. You will find the diving here as good if not better those other destinations.
Plan on flying into St. Maarten and boarding the boat around 3pm on Saturday. Each stateroom has a private bathroom and most have queen beds. The vessel features a roomy salon, dining area, sun deck, gear lockers and photo/video area. Sunday through Friday will be diving, diving and more diving!
