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

Just returned from a three week sail trip throughout the Leewards, and all 6 of us fell in love with St. Eustatius! Our charter yacht company recommended we contact Glenn and Michelle at Golden Rock Dive Center for our dives and snorkeling. We could not have been happier! We had lots of communication with them prior to our arrival, and... More

Lovely place to dive, lots of diversity, beautiful underwater and above water. Caribbean feel to the diving centre, nice, relaxed but professional atmosphere. Highly recommend

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
