    I agree with DeputyDan... Octopus diving all the way. Very professional outfit. Lots of options for accommodation. We stayed at the Radisson Blu, very close to Grand Case where Octopus Diving is... there are lots of choices. Saba is a one-trick pony. St. Martin has loads of great diving.

    Radisson Blu has been bought by Riu. Opens as Riu in June 2014 and will have ugrades done. By December it will be an all inclusive Riu Palace. Nice option.

    Totally agree with the Curacao recommendation. We have been 5 times and love it. The Diving really is fantastic. So much shore diving or if you choose, boats are great. Can recommend some great dive ops and accommodations. It is super safe too. My GF had no problem taking a solo vacation there. Of course topside activities are dependent on what you are looking for. It is a small island, but it has an interesting history.
