Hot Springs

Mooring Depth: 45 feet (15m)
Maximum Depth: 80 feet (26m)
So named because of the hot water springs coming through vents in the sea floor, this dive site is proof positive that Saba's volcano is merely inbetween periods of eruption, not extinct. Pick a dive here! Head seaward from the mooring and then south over a series of coral heads separated by a sandy bottom. A huge anchor (one of several at this dive site) is a good point to turn inshore and back to the mooring. Alternatively, head seaward and then north for a shallower version among the coral encrusted boulders before heading back to the mooring. Check out the extremely friendly resident juvenile Nurse Shark, Stingrays and Garden Eels hiding in the sand and turtles grazing in the seagrass. A favorite site for night dives, crustaceans can always be spotted out dancing in front of their lairs. Other night dive highlights are to catch ocotopus, eels, black jacks and sharks while they hunt.

By popular vote, Kat Destefano (Sea Saba 2008-10) won the honor of naming this new (2009) dive site. Divers can now enjoy the remnants of the past where the sandy bottom was an attraction for seafarers--look for two nice large anchors. Modern day frequenters of the sand channels are Southern Stingrays and the occassional Spotted Eagle Ray. Just south of Hot Springs, this is an ideal shallow afternoon dive for training or for divers looking to poke around its shallow depths.
