RCC Pilotage Foundation updates on Statia (St Eustatius)
Not well protected at Oranjestead but if you trust your anchor and don’t mind a bit of rolling, I couldn’t recommend it highly enough. World class diving. Beautiful cobbled street, historic, Dutch town. Fantastic hiking into the volcanic crater of ‘The Quill’. Small but entertaining nightlife and charming locals. Clearing in and out very simple and laid back. I should mention though that you should expect to see a fair bit of shipping around as the oil refinery is highly active.
