My son and I took two ground courses (normal courses with certificate were sold out, so make reservations). We dived before in Thailand. The explanation on land before diving was very accurate and precise. Safety first. Diving with Petricia was lovely. She was like a mother to her children, looking after us and wanting to show us every small detail.... More

This diving school is run by Rob and Petricia Botbijl, who are friendly, relaxed and true professionals in every way. My first contacts were via... More

Initially my plan... More

We found Petricia and Rob online and booked a few days to dive with them. Every dive we did in a different location, always super nice spots. Our experience was truly relaxing. We dove with Petricia... More

In December 2010, my wife Erin and I both did a separate introduction dive with RGD. Both of us were immediately hooked and went on to obtain our open water certificate. I took the Dutch class, Erin took the English class, and both of loved every minute of it. Besides learning all the necessary skills, Rob and Petricia also taught... More

We were so lucky to land at Petrica's and Rob's dive base. They are one of the nicest people we ever met who own a dive operation. They gave us helpful information in the forefront before coming and also when we finally were there. They recommended us the best dive spots, explained us how to get there, recommended us great...
