Explore some of the most diverse ocean ecosystems anywhere and see how marine conservation and resource management keeps them protected.
85-feet below the jewel-like waters of Saba exist lava-formed pinnacles that have jutted up from the ocean floor. It’s an underwater mountain range crawling with corals, sponges, sharks and stingrays. Double check your air tank is full because if anything on this trek will take your breath away, this is it. In fact, the pinnacles, along with the stunning marine parks of St. Barts and Statia, are likely to encourage a desire to help retain their beauty and safeguard their future. And so, your role is set: live in an eco lodge in Saba’s rainforest for a week, then island hop for two weeks aboard a 50-foot yacht – all the while exploring, researching, conserving and protecting.
