Michelle and Glen are great hosts. I've been diving with them several times over the years. Although it is advisable to "call ahead" as opposed to "walking in" they were able to accommodate me and my partner who needed to get certified even though we hadn't made any reservations. I'm sure he'll write his own review, also, but my partner... More

This was our 7th trip to Statia diving with Golden Rock "so we obviously like it". Our trips seem to be getting longer each visit (16 days, now 1 month). On Statia, where you can walk everywhere (so safe). Statians are like neighbours. Always with a smile, a wave and an "Okay". Golden Rock offers a cozy, personal dive experience.... More

Thanks to the instructors Yoeri and Nikki I can say that I learned from every dive. This dive center to me is the way I want to be diving; personal attention, not crowed and with lots of fun. The atmosphere at the dive shop is great and I like to stop by for a cup of coffee, even when im... More

Golden Rock Dive Center is the way to go if you want personal attention and not to have to dive with a ton of other divers. There is so much to see! I use a video camera, and while filming one thing I am looking around as to what to film next. In Statia, there is so much biodiversity that... More

I'm used to cattle boats. This is the smallest dive operation I've ever dived with, and it was excellent. I dived five days in a row, two tanks a day, and we only repeated a location once. The sites they visit are so close to the shop that each dive is one tank...then you go back and hang out at... More

My visit to St Eustatius and Golden Rock Dive center was my first experience with diving. I went to Golden Rock to get my Padi after recommendations from some friends and I didn't regret it. I have no comparison material with other dive schools but what I really liked about Golden Rock are the personal attention you get during the... More

I got here my open water diving licence and probably I couldn't choose a better place!! First of all the staff is very friendly and well prepared (Nichy and Joeri), I had fun also learning the most boring stuff. The good thing is that I also had the chance to schedule my course acording to my work on the island,... More

Went to Golden Rock for my Open Water course after recommendations from friends. Golden Rock is a relaxed and open Dive centre where a relaxed atmosphere rules. No problem to join a last minute dive. The open water course was thorough and clear from both theoretical and practice point of view. The skills were practiced throughout the course until mastered.... More

We did five days of excellent diving with Golden Rock Dive Centre in Statia’s marine park. We dived in small groups supervised by Glen, Nicky and Joeri. Basically anything was possible. Schedules were flexible and could be altered on short notice on request. All three dive guides were very competent, pointed us in the right directions, kept a close eye... More
