Statia Divers by Golden Rock Resort

Statia Divers overlooks the windward coastline, located within Golden Rock Resort. Our experienced PADI dive instructors offer valet guided dives tailored to your comfort and experience level. We offer ScubaPro rental gear and Nitrox is complimentary to all EANx certified divers.

 

We teach a variety of PADI courses from Discover Scuba Diving to Deep Specialty to Divemaster. With the largest, ocean-fed, cliff edge lagoon in the Caribbean on site that hides an American school bus at 9 m/30 ft, we can kickstart your dive adventure or continue your education in a truly spectacular and unique setting.

Valet Service

 

At Statia Divers, we pride ourselves in offering exceptional valet service to all of our guests. We want you to feel absolutely pampered and treated to a wonderful time while you are diving with us. This includes providing refreshments on board by our dive crew, dry towels, and plenty of cold drinking water. We expertly assemble your SCUBA gear and will make any adjustments to assure all gear is in proper working order and tailored to fit you perfectly. We transfer your gear to fresh tanks during our surface interval while you relax and enjoy the sun and beautiful surroundings.  

Many dive centers boast “valet service” but we believe we are a cut above the rest, and hope you will come to experience just what makes us so special. Our dive instructors love to tailor our dive schedule to accommodate the requests and desires of our divers, depending on level of experience and special interests.  

If you are passionate about wreck diving, we will make sure to highlight the best of our shipwrecks. If searching for macro species thrills you, we will help you spot these tiny creatures. We delight in seeing smiles on our guests’ faces after a wonderful time on-board and underwater.

Statia’s History

St. Eustatius was named in 1493 by Christopher Columbus and over the following 150 years was claimed 22 times by different European nations until it finally settled as a Dutch territory. St. Eustatius comes from the French saint “Saint Eustace” who is the patron saint of merchants. In 1756, the port town of Oranjestad was claimed as a free port, making it the most important trading port for the West Indies Company and the entire Caribbean, earning the island the nickname “The Golden Rock”. In fact, up to 200 large merchant vessels could anchor in Oranje Bay at any one time. During the height of the merchant trade in the 17th and 18th centuries, thousands of ships would anchor in our bay and it is estimated there are over 400 shipwrecks. The wooden ships have long since rotted away, but what remains is a delight for divers. Mounds of ballast stones have fused together and formed the bedrock for coral gardens, and you’ll spot enormous anchors and canons encrusted with coral, shards of pottery and ancient rum bottles.  

MARINE PARK

Statia is one of the best kept secrets of the Caribbean. In fact, National Geographic stated Statia's pristine waters have the “best diving in the Caribbean.”  And in 2023, the island topped the list of Scuba Diving Magazine Reader’s Choice Awards, which celebrates the best diving in the world. Statia was ranked  #1 for Best Wreck Diving, Best Macro Life and Best Marine Environment.
