Golden Rock is one of those unique dive operations that is well equipped and organized to comfortably and safely handle larger diverse groups of divers but truly functions as a small welcoming personal dive operation where everybody knows your name. Michelle flawlessly coordinated all of the booking arrangements prior to arrival. Both she and Glenn are quick to share their... More

We had an excellent dive experience on an old wreck. We took our PADI refresher course here and then went on a boat dive. The instructor was great and we highly recommend St Eustatius (Statia) for getting away from the crowds and excellent diving. They don't have a dive picture book here, but ask and they will tell you about... More

If i see them again i will buy them beer and dinner. The owner Glenn was also a great guy when i dived with him. It was... More

My husband and I decided to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary, off the “beaten path.” I am a dive travel specialist, and I also wanted to check out a new dive destination! We are very happy we chose St. Eustatius, better known as Statia, and dive with Golden Rock Dive Center and stayed at The Old Gin House. We were... More

This was our first dive trip to St. Eustatius and we booked through Golden Rock Dive Center. We had some chop, we had some current, but we had a first class tour of the island’s dive sites courtesy of Golden Rock Divers---an operation that I believe was custom made just for people like my husband and me. Why? Because this... More

We dove with a husband and wife team from Ireland and they were awesome. Funny friendly and knowledgable. We took out the dive boat with the platform. Perfect boat. The couple helped us with gear and we had a great dive. We did wreck city and saw turtles, eel, lobster, Rays and lots of coral and fish. We rinsed gear... More

Enjoyed our dive with Lynn at Wreck City. Felt safe in the rough conditions on the surface. Lynn pointed out lots of great marine life and we go to spend a lot of time exploring. They were very kind and helpful to us. Would go with them again.

This is a small dive center, not to much divers on the boat compare to the next dive center (scubaqua) The prices are cheaper, dive '' à la carte''.

There are two dive centres on the sea front and despite my grading I think we chose the right centre, the other one looked a little too regimented for our liking. I'd been told that the diving off Statia was excellent, but was disappointed as it's nothing like as good as many other places I've dived. We only did four... More

My husband is not a diver so I'm always the solo diver. I was made to feel comfortable not only with the dive staff but also with the group of divers I was with. Smaller groups are what I prefer & I think the most we had on our boat may have been 6 divers. I prefer setting up my... More
