DISCLAIMER: Given the ongoing disruption to ferry services, passengers should be aware that schedules are subject to change or cancellation without notice. Should a trip be cancelled, the ferry operator will do their utmost to secure a seat for you on another vessel if available, on another day with their own vessel or a full refund will be issued. If the ferry is unable to travel due to weather or mechanical failure, you will be notified of this and can chose another day to travel, or receive a full refund. In all cases, neither The Edge Ferry, nor StMartinbookings.com, will be liable for any additional costs incurred.
"Edge" - Saba Ferry
From world renowned diving, superb hiking and spectacular nature, the mystical island of Saba has it all. Travel on the “Edge” ferry to the Dutch island of Saba and discover why it’s affectionately known as the “Unspoiled Queen” of the Caribbean. An eco-paradise both above and below the water, Saba is one day trip not to be missed. In just 90 minutes you can be transported from the hustle and bustle of St Maarten to Saba – a mystical island getaway.
The “Edge” high-speed ferry travels from St Maarten to Saba three times a week – Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays – temporarily departing from the Simpson Bay Police Station Dock and arriving at Saba’s main ferry terminal and harbour – Fort Bay. You can check schedules, get live seat availability and make online bookings right here! Just choose your route, enter your dates and number of passengers and press ‘Search’.
High-speed ferry to Saba
Operated by St Maarten based Aqua Mania Adventures, the “Edge” ferry to Saba makes for a perfect day trip to this nature-lovers utopia. Departing at 9:00am from the Simpson Bay Police Station Dock, the “Edge” will whisk you in comfort across the Caribbean Sea to neighbouring Saba in just 90 minutes! Once on board, sit down, relax and enjoy the spacious ventilated cabin with complimentary refreshments served at the open bar by their professional and friendly crew. The wave-piercing design of their “Edge I” and “Edge II” vessels strive for a smoother ride, although weather conditions may result in the crossing being bit bouncy.
Upon arrival at Saba, a world of discovery awaits. Above the water you can spend the day touring the island by taxi, take a guided hike along one of the island’s many trails or perhaps a walk up Mt Scenery with its spectacular views back across to St Maarten, St Barths and St Eustatius. For scuba divers, the island’s beauty descends below the water, where colourful corals, sheer walls and an abundance of marine life await.
