The diving around St. Eustatius is top notch, and Glenn knows the area very well, we just didn't hit it off with him personally, and my young adult sons didn't care for the way he treated me. The Charlie Brown dive is moderately interesting. You don't penetrate the ship. It's in variable water depths. The lava flow coral reefs are... More

I came for the first time ever to Statia with a co-worker who used to live on Statia 11 years ago and worked for Glenn & Michelle for about a year. From the very first moment, I got introduced to this couple, I felt at home among friends. The dive center is small yet offers everything a seasoned traveling diver... More

Spent a couple of days at Statia on a Sunail bareboat charter out of St. Martin to Nevis and back. I used the time to dive with Golden Rock and had wonderful dives. Lots of turtles, rays, morays, mature angel fish. The dive on the two 18th century wrecks with old anchors and bottles strewn about was awesome. Very friendly... More

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
