We are looking for a quickie, 4 to 5 day, nothing but Dive, Eat and Sleep Getaway from Ft. Lauderdale/Miami. Next month or month after.
Since we got a Mega $$$ Trip coming up in December (Aussie/PNG/Guam), it kinda needs to be on the none 5* Side...
Little Cayman or Cayman Brac also in the consideration.
Please let me have any suggestions.
check the flights. you are looking at a minimum day to day and a half of travel. i know because I was looking to go to saba a couple months ago. out of miami(if you look on matrix software) there is not a flight any day next month that can get you to either island in the same day. if you are going for 4 or 5 days, imo, you need to find a direct flight somewhere. just my 2c
There are daily ferry's between Saba and St Marteen if flights are an issue. Ferry schedule could be an issue as well.
Just an fyi on flights: AA has a non-stop, & USair a one stop to MIA-SXM & JetBlue a one stop FLL-SXM, all arriving in time to make the 17:00 Winair to Saba. Win Air flight seem to pops up inconsistantly on the usual travel sites, best to check there yourself. The dependable airline of the caribbean - Winair I haven't checked lately but the ferrys did depart earlier than that last Win Air flight and you have to get to the dock from the airport.
This time of year on most days the last flight arrives on Saba at 5:30 Check out the Dawn II ferry, tues,thurs, Sat. depart StMaarten at I think 4:45 but you have a taxi ride from the Airport to Phillipsburg which can take a bit depending on traffic.
