Saba / Ferries

By Nigel Tisdall

Saba is linked to the outside world by two ferry services – the crossing takes around 80 minutes depending on sea conditions. Neither ferry operates every day, so check the schedules to see what suits your travel plans best. The crossings can be rough and  regulars say the passage back from Saba tends be a smoother ride that the one out. Rates generally include one piece of luggage, departure taxes are payable on boarding in cash.
