Our to 5 Saba Anchorages are:

South Side

This is the only place to anchor off Saba. It is a decent sized anchorage but it is deep. The water is about 50ft so if you dont have 150 ft or more of chain don't try it. The bottom is sandy and you anchor should dig in but the swell could unhook you with less then 3x even in calm weather.

You need to get on a ball as soon as you can. The weather changes quickly and you could get in big trouble if you drag. Just behind the designated anchoring zone is the island communications cable. You do not want to hook on to that.


East Side

The east side has the best protection for the pervailing weather. After clearing in try and get here for a day or two. I promise you will be in awe of the view.


You have to be very careful here. Do not mess around or leave the boat unattended. Last season two vessels broke loose and ended up on the rocky shore. One was a 50-60 ft sailboat. The mooring line got wrapped around his keel and the rope chaiffed through


The second boat was a mega yacht, around 120 ft. There is still some contraversy about what went wrong. Needless to say the owner of the mega yacht had lawyers on island with in hours of his boat ending up on the rocks blaming the park service.


When you are on the east side you might be tempted to head over and investigate ladder bay. Don't its to dangerious. Even in calm weather their is a swell that slams onto the rocky shore. People have died trying to land here and died trying to get back off after making it ashore. Please be safe and don't do it.
