National Marine Park Saba
Netherlands Antilles, Saba

Saba National Marine Park encircles Saba Island, part of the Netherlands Antilles in the Caribbean. The marine park was created in 1987 with the aim of preserving coral reefs and marine life off the coast of the island. The park is managed by the Szabo Conservation Fund. The total area of the park is about 1300 hectares, the maximum depth is 60 meters. The zoning system divides the fleet into four zones: recreational, reserved (mining is prohibited here), multi-purpose and a mooring area for ships. Due to restrictions on fishing and mooring only in authorized places, the coral reefs of the Saba National Marine Park are protected from damage. Various volcanic formations form the seabed - boulders covered with colonies of sponges and corals, lava caves and fields. But the main attraction of the park are coral reefs and their inhabitants. Here you can see dangerous barracudas and whale sharks, a giant sea devil (mantu), seahorses, sea bass, Green sea turtles and, of course, coral fish of the most incredible colors and shapes. Such biodiversity of the deep sea, excellent visibility in the water (from 20 to 30 meters) attract scuba diving enthusiasts from all over the world. There are 25 unique diving sites in the park. It is possible to go diving after obtaining permission from the Sabo Nature Conservation Fund and only accompanied by an instructor from one of the island's licensed diving centers.
