Small, Friendly, Flexible... Dive How YOU Want to!

Ready for something different?

St. Eustatius "Statia" is a rare Caribbean island with old-world appeal that feels like stepping into the Caribbean 40 yr.  No mass tourism,  duty-free shopping, or cruise ships.  Statia is peaceful, friendly, and flooding with local culture.
Surrounded by protected marine reserve, the diving in Statia is spectacular boasting healthy reefs, turtles, rays, nudibrachs, sharks and large schools of reef fish.
Statia offers the best night dive experience in the Caribbean on the Chien Tong with the entire wreck covered in blooming orange cup coral, crawling with spotted moray eels and cryptic crabs all while swarming with sea turtles large and small coming to sleep for the night.  
With only one boat allowed on each dive site, divers have a private experience throughout their entire holiday. Wreck, reef, walls, and muck diving for Blue Beads; a dive for everyone!

Golden Rock Dive Center (GRDC) specializes eco-tourism and community based opportunities.  When you dive with GRDC you leave feeling like family, not just another diver on a boat!
