We've handpicked top-quality dive hotels in Sint Eustatius so you don't have to - book with PADI and spend your vacation enjoying the pristine waters and epic seascapes this region is known for.
St Eustatius, or 'Statia' to those in the know, is a hidden gem in the Caribbean, housing seven distinct ecosystems and an abundance of interesting marine-life. As it is still relatively untouched by mass tourism, the waters surrounding the island are some of the most pristine in the Caribbean and dive resorts in St Eustatius are often nice and quiet. You'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to diving here - the lava flows create epic seascapes and there are some fascinating underwater archaelogical sites to explore around the island. For an added challenge to your dive, hunt for one of the Blue Bead Hole's beads - a historic glass artefact that divers are allowed to bring up if they find them. While finding an elusive bead isn't guaranteed, sightings of flying gurnard and peacock flounder most certainly are. Statia is a compellingly unique place to visit, for divers and non-divers alike.
