We spent 5 diving days with Golden Rock and had an outstanding time. We did 2 two tank days and 3 three tank dives, including a night dive. it is interesting that because the dive sites are close, they are able to come back to the shop between dives for the surface interval. The sites are pretty varied and have... More

I cannot say enough good things about Golden Rock and would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a unique dive experience. The owners Glenn and Michelle are exceptional in their ability to make you feel like family. Their knowledge of the dive sites and area are extensive, and their team of Dave, Sarah, and Mike could not have been... More

During a recent trip to St. Eustatius we went diving with Glenn of Golden Rock Dive Center. He was a great guide as we explored 4 different sites. It was the best diving I have done in the Caribbean. The area has been very well protected so the reefs, the wrecks, etc. are in great shape. Highly recommended to get... More

Golden Rock is one of those unique dive operations that is well equipped and organized to comfortably and safely handle larger diverse groups of divers but truly functions as a small welcoming personal dive operation where everybody knows your name. Michelle flawlessly coordinated all of the booking arrangements prior to arrival. Both she and Glenn are quick to share their... More

We had an excellent dive experience on an old wreck. We took our PADI refresher course here and then went on a boat dive. The instructor was great and we highly recommend St Eustatius (Statia) for getting away from the crowds and excellent diving. They don't have a dive picture book here, but ask and they will tell you about... 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
