I found the trellis to Spanish town ferry.

But I would so much prefer a run straight to North Sound Leverick Bay.

Got one private water taxi quote of $950!, no thank you. Anyone know of a reasonable priced way to get there without going through Spanish town?

To the best of my knowledge Saba now runs the Saba Express, leaving Loose Mongoose every day at noon. I would assume this is for overnight guests but don't know if they make exceptions. At the least I would think they would want you to make a dining reservation.
This of course would put you on Saba and then you would take the water taxi back to mainland. Can't hurt to call Saba and inquire. It would be awesome if they agreed to take you.
If that doesn't work, there really is no other way to avoid either Spanishtown or a water taxi.

I recall Saba posted that their ferry is currently not operating. Only options are water taxi, Speedy's ferry or the car ferry.

Saba Express suspended their service on 11/21/23 until further notice according to Saba Rock FB post. I haven't seen any further update.

Second the above for the Saba Rock Express. That is the only regular publicly available option.

Otherwise, I can give you contact information for a local North Sound captain. They usually charge $400 for the run from Trellis to North Sound. Still not necessarily reasonable, but much cheaper than your above quote.

Lmk if you are interested
