High-speed ferry to Saba
The "Edge" high-speed ferries offer a unique service between the islands of St Maarten, Saba and St Barths. Almost identical in design, the wave-piercing catamaran Edge I and its slightly bigger sister Edge II make light work of the crossings between St Maarten and its neighbouring islands. You can check live seat availability, book, pay and immediately receive confirmed e-tickets for your St Maarten Saba or St Maarten St Barths ferry journey on the left of this page.
Owned and operated by Aqua Mania Adventures, the "Edge" departs three times a week from St Maarten's Simpson Bay. It travels non-stop to Saba in just 90 minutes (depending on sea conditions). Just present your e-ticket to the Aqua Mania staff at the jetty (temporarily located at the Simpson Bay Police Station Dock), and they will provide you with your Boarding Pass. Passengers should arrive at the dock at least 1 hour before departure to check in for the ferry to Saba and 30 minutes before departure for trips to St Maarten.
