Hello,

I was on vacations 2 months ago in the Caribbean, on a very small island called Statia (Sint-Eustatius, Saint-Eustache) near Saba.
Statia is part of the Dutch Antilles, and only 25 minutes flight from Sint Marteen.
There are very few tourists in Statia which makes this island a haven for us !

This is also a marine park, and very few divers. I was diving with Scuabaqua (www.scubaqua.com) owned by Ingrid and Menno.
It was great diving with them, as they always tried to accommodate me as a photographer.

Statia is full of great wrecks.
I even had the chance to dive on the SS. Charles Brown (2nd biggest wreck of the Caribbean) with Menno only. Image diving a 155m piece of steel during a storm :B):
