Climb aboard in the marina of Anse Marcel Bay, on the northern tip of St. Martin, and set sail for the fragile marine parks of Statia, Saba and St. Barts. Just off Gustavia harbor in St. Barts exist massive corals in full bloom and waters filled with healthy turtles, rays and more. Shame that this underwater paradise is being threatened by over-fishing and dive tourism. Which is where you come in. Your work here is to keep the pristine looking pristine.
Now take what you’ve learned in St. Barts and apply it in St. Eustatius, or Statia, as it’s commonly known. In fact, this trip is all about taking knowledge and experience and putting it to immediate use out in the real works. Statia, a tiny Dutch island southwest of St. Barts, is happy to oblige. Not only does this island itself look and feel like the Caribbean of twenty years ago, it’s sponge and coral covered underwater landscapes are a throwback to. Let’s keep them that way.

Arrive on Saba, a rugged jewel in the Leeward Islands. Dutch may be the official language here. But diving is the “official official” language. Your role is to dive down and discover soaring pinnacles, brilliant coral and abundant marine life, and protect this paradise from ever-encroaching forces. The Saba Marine Park is easily accessible from your home base at the Rainforest Eco-lodge – a ten-minute hike from the main village of Windwardside.
