This was our second trip to Curacao diving. My wife and I met Rob and Petricia in 2010, and had such a great time diving, we decided to return, and bring the whole family. Rob and Petricia are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and I strongly recommend their dive shop to anyone considering a dive vacation (or a single dive) in... More

We stopped here to check the place out last year and decided we would dive with them this year. Rob and Petricia are personable, knowledgeable, engaging, and all around awesome. We did our AOW certifications with them and are convinced they went above and beyond to ensure we not only learned but enjoyed the experiences. We visited multiple dive sites... More

Diving with Relaxed Guided Dives was one of the most special experiences of my life. I'm not a great swimmer and am a bit afraid of the water--scuba diving is something I never thought I'd do, but I didn't want to come to Curaçao and miss out. I reached out after reading their reviews. Petricia responded quickly to every email,... More

For our third discover scuba dive with Petricia and Rob we had another wonderful experience. These place is beyond professional and wonderful. This time we went to curaçao on a cruise and our ship was docked from 8am- 5:30pm. I emailed Petricia about two weeks prior and made arrangements for my nieces, two nephews, my other half and myself to... More

My wife and I enjoyed three days of diving earlier this month with Relaxed Guided Dives. Having only done boat dives prior to this trip we were super excited to try shore diving. We were not disappointed! Petricia was great; she took us to some amazing dive sites and took time to answer all of our questions and educate us... More

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

Relaxed Guided Dives was recommended to me when I was looking for a diving school to do my PADI Open Diver. Don't look further, I would say, this is the place you want to choose. 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

We went to Curacao for holidays after getting our PADI, and as beginners we were looking for an easy-going experience to start diving 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
