Saba by sea:
Known as “The Saba Ferry”, The Dawn II is one of two ferries servicing Saba and St. Maarten. The Dawn II travels on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (see their website for additional charter dates). If flights are full or you must carry additional luggage or just prefer to go by boat rather than plane, the Dawn II’s schedule works to depart Saba early (to catch an international flight) and arrive Saba late (flying in to SXM on an international flight) and is about half the price of flying. Dawn II leaves Saba at 7:00 a.m. to travel to St. Maarten. Dawn II departs St. Maarten from Dock Martin (near Chesterfield’s/Great Bay Marina) at 4:30 p.m. so that you’re on Saba by 6:00 p.m. Check their website at http://www.sabaferry.com/dawn2
Additional The Edge ferry departs from Pelican Marina near Simpson Bay (close to Princess Juliana International airport) Wednesday, Friday and Sundays. For additional information or to book a ticket, visit their web site at www.stmaarten-activities.com.
