Interestingly, the island of Saba is known for it's dive industry.. when we were there the water was EXCEPTIONALLY clear, noticeably better than the 'crystal' waters of the other islands. The distance we could see underwater was unreal.

This is an island with no sand whatsoever.. so no turbidity in the local waters.
