Gradual Reopening

May 16, 2020

As of Sunday May 17, 2020 Golden Rock Dive Center is allowed to open to diving again.  Currently we are only working with people currently living on Statia since inbound flights are not yet allowed.

There will be some new rules to help keep everyone safe and healthy, but we are happy to get back to some diving!

We look forward to having our off-island divers soon!  Currently, the travel ban is until June 15, 2020.  Please stay tuned for updates.
