Really enjoyed our time on Statia diving with Golden Rock Dive Center. What a great dive shop! David, Sarah, Gary, and Ciara are a great team - fun, helpful, friendly, and professional. Also, shoutout to Gadget, who was a great boat captain on several days we went diving. They went above and beyond to make our experience a fantastic one. We have our own gear and they washed, stored, and set up our gear each day, which was a luxury (as we live on a sailboat!). We had a couple of gear failures, which they kindly and quickly sorted out for us. We also really appreciated the small dive groups; there was never more than 5 guests on the dive. It gave a really personal touch. The dive sites themselves are wonderful - great viz, lots of marine life and plenty of variety in site types. What more could you want?!

People of Golden Dive Center, especially Sarah, were very nice. We had a great and safe dive in April 2022 with them. Small groups on the boat with two competent dive instructors, good equipment. Fair prices. All in all a very good atmosphere and friendly divers around. We will come again.

I've been to Statia several times on dive trips, but this was my first time diving with Golden Rock Dive Center and it really is a great small group dive center. Some things I especially liked: dive staff, Gary and Ciara, were patient, attentive and helpful above and below the water; they're also very efficient in getting people back on the boat, and getting tanks changed out, or gear gathered together after the last dive. I just sat back and tried to stay out of the way. Love that GR adds disinfectant to the rinse tubs. This is the first trip I returned from where my gear did not smell funky! I almost felt like I didn't need to clean it, tho I did just in case. 😊 Owners David and Sarah ask for any special requests when dives are being booked so they can try to meet their customers' needs, but if you change or add a request, they try to accommodate that as well. My only disappointment, which had nothing to do with the dive shop, is that a blue bead did not find me. I guess I'll just have to return for another blue bead try...

We had a fantastic experience with Golden Rock Dive Center in Statia. Sarah helped with every step of the planning, including getting us squared away with our diving, transportation, and hotel. When I told her our anniversary was one evening of the trip she suggested and made reservations at a fantastic restaurant and made arrangements for the ride there and back. The diving at Statia was amazing and so diverse with very healthy and well protected reefs. We did wrecks, artifact diving, deep diving, and reefs, Golden Rock listened to what we wanted to see and adjusted the dive plans accordingly. The dive masters were absolutely amazing. Every dive was well briefed and there was always a critter or behavior that we were looking to find. After every dive we asked about new fish, critters, behaviors; and Gary and Kiera taught us so much we did not know. I cannot say enough about what a great shop this is, truly a five star experience.
