    Interesting place, half French/half Dutch.
    Great fishing offshore at Saba Bank, excellent diving at Prickly Pear.
    Tons of grey snapper and cuda's in the lagoon, spiny lobster too.
    Saturday night entertainment is watching drunks launch out into the lagoon
    at the bend in the road by the end of the airport runway.   ;D

    That's remarkable! My wife and I did our honeymoon on St.Maarten, but we dove off Saba. By far, the clearest water I've ever dove in. It was like diving in air. Unbelievable, beautiful island! Cutrunner, you need to go there. The diving is unreal.

    Kreepa, if you're still on St.Maarten, look up La Bistro Nu in Marigot. It's a dive in an abandoned railroad car, spectacular French cuisine. Just no AC! And it's not on the water.
