Golden Rock is just a gem of a dive operation. I traveled with a group of 9, many of us have traveled together for 15+ years. Statia was a new destination for us, and I just cannot say enough good things about the dive operation and its owners Glenn and Michelle, and each and every one of their staff. Chris,... More

Glenn, Michele, Kris, Karrina and Ben are awesome! The dive sites are beautiful. We didn't want for anything. Very relaxing, slow pace, we picked the time when we left for the dives. The staff is very knowledgable of the sites and the sea life. They took excellent care of our equipment. They took into account the different skill levels of... More

They are very accomodating on the location of the... More

My husband and I spent 10 days in Statia and had a wonderful time. The diving is very good with very few lionfish. The boat went out 3 times a day and came back to the dock after each dive. The longest ride was about 12 minutes. The dive staff loaded your gear each morning, helped you don it for... More

I was on the island visiting a friend and her husband who used to be a dive master at this shop, he recommended I try the intro to Dive class and I was so glad I did. This little shop was very laid back and professional even though we arrived late they took there time teaching us. We had Ray... More

Statia is known for it's diving and I learned to dive from the Golden Rock dive Shop. Glenn the owner is very knowledgeable and Kaylie, our instructor, was a very good teacher and made sure we were comfortable with everything we did. Both of us were very nervous and she took it very slow and never left our sides. What... More

We were there after hurricane Sandy tore through the Caribbean. The conditions were okay (vis was okay and we had some currents). We dove with the owners (Glenn and Michele) - great people - very accomodating and lots of knowledge. We enjoyed getting to know them and simply sitting down and talking to them in the morning. When we dove,... More

This is a small but organized and friendly dive center where the customer comes first. When you ask what time the dives leave and to where, you will be asked what time YOU want to dive and where YOU want to go! They also offer Nitrox--quite a feat given the tricky logistics of getting things to Statia. Michelle responds very... More

I spent a week diving with the Ray,Kayley, and Glen (da owner). I walked every morning from the Old Gin Inn. The morning walk was a nice way to start the day minus the islander's driving like crazies :). We dove mostly on the catamaran and typical did 2 dives sometime 3... Eustatius works on island time so don't plan... More
