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

We spent a week diving with Golden Rock in February, 2015 on a trip organized by our dive shop. First Impressions: Glenn met us at the airport, and transported our luggage, and driver Bobby took us to our hotel (The Old Gin House - an easy walk to the dive shop). Glenn (owner/operator) was also our Captain for the week... More

Michelle and Glenn plus their staff are fantastic. This is my third visit to this island, my third time diving with Gloden Rock Dive Center and I'm already dreaming about my next vacation there. The dive center is well organized, easy going and always delivers a great day of diving. They all have extensive knowledge of the dive sites and... More
