Antigua has little to offer that you won't find in St Maarten. And it isn't as nice.

St Barth is easy and can be done on the cheap if you are careful
You will book with the airline direct. St Barth commuter or Winair

Saba is amazing and such a different experience. Hardly feels Caribbean.
Winair wil take you there to land on the world's shortest commercial runway.

Hope this helps.

As to Saba, one thing I missed the last time I was there, was seafood. None available on an island. I didn't understand. It is great there but I don't think I need to return. so NO to Antigua. Ok. Last time I was on St, Barths it got stupid. We stopped for wine and cheese for a beach picnic... found a local beach bar... a beer at le Select, more wine waiting for the shuttle back to windjammer,, then a wine and cheese party on board then back to the island for one of the most memorable meals I've ever had. (lobster medallions and lentils-I cried).. I know we'd never get this done with a plane to catch, but we're not as young any more

maybe I'll try to talk my friend into using the money on cab fares on the island instead of going to another island. hmmmmmmm

What is the ferry like. We've been to St. Maarten many times but have never left on a day trip to go elsewhere. Does the ferry handle the water pretty well?

Ferry to WHERE? The waters going over to Anguilla are fairly calm and it's a pretty short trip. The waters going over to St. Barts can be very rough, and the trip is a little over an hour, one way.

I guess I found out where the ferries go. Is Anguilla worth the trip?

In my opinion the short trip to Anguilla is worth it. The beaches and eateries are great.
