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...

After two disappointing dives with Caribbean Sea Sports (see other review), we drove up to the people from Relaxed Guided Dives to check them out. The reviews are pretty good and indeed from the beginning on the experience was much more friendly, relaxed and nice. My girlfriend and I did 2 dives sofar with Petricia and we were very happy...

Rob and Petricia are simply wonderful and I warmly recommend their dive shop to anyone considering to dive on Curaçao! I did my Advanced Open Water Course with Petricia including a deep dive, navigation, peak performance boyancy, photography and even a night dive. I was rather apprehensive to begin with as it had been almost two years since my last... More

thank you so much Patricia and Rob! You made my sons certification experience more than we had anticipated. You made learning fun and exciting for a 13 year old and you did an amazing job taking care of a hovering mother and grandfather. You we professional, fun and extremely accomodating. And what a great bonus to have a YouTube video... More

Service was excellent! Patricia is extremely efficient, and knowledgeable about places to dive. We rented tanks, BCD/regulator. In and out in minutes whenever we swapped tanks. The establishment is nicely kept, well run, very inviting and certainly aptly named. Loved the dive flag shutters! Thanks for a wonderful experience - we'll be back!

A group of four rented tanks and one BCD/regulator for five days. Petricia gave great advice on where to dive. The only so-so dive we did was one that was not on Petricia's list . . . We should have known better. She was always waiting for us with a smile and full tanks to change out. Highly recommend .... More

We did two shallow dives (DSDs) with Patricia, one planned ahead another last minute. Both were great. This shop perfectly combines professionalism with casual friendliness. It's intimate, homey and family-run. Petricia was thorough and efficient, taking time to answer questions, in several languages no less (she speaks fluent Dutch, German, English, Papiamentu), but not labouring too long over simple concepts,...

Second trip to Curacao and decided to email Rob and Petrecia last minute to see about a few guided dives. These guys are extremely accommodating, full service with excellent gear. Great staff and extremely flexible to make your dive whatever you want it to be. This will always be our dive shop when in Curacao

This was my second time at Relaxed Guided Dives. Petricia is great. She's very knowledgeable about all the dive spot on the island. Due to their great location in the middle of the island, the team can take you all over Curacao to check out anything you fancy. Petricia is very professional and will observe your habits and help or... More
