My friend and I dove with 2 different companies in Curacao and this was my second favorite. The diving was good but I felt the guide was not really enthusiastic as she could be. I have dived all the Hawaiian Islands and I have dived on three different Caribbean islands so I have experienced a variety of dive companies and... More

RG Dives provided tanks to Discover Diving in Lagun which we used for our trip. Drop off and delivery everyday. $190 US pp for 8 days of unlimited Nitrox. Stopped into the shop to have a high pressure hose replaced. Fixed immediately and at a reasonable price. Also purchased a new mask. Staff are all very friendly and the shop... More

We spent 10 days in Curacao and are very happy we used RGD. It is very convenient to pick up your stuff from them on your way out to the western dive spots. Good equiptment, good prices, knowledgeable staff. We were appreciative that with proper notice in advance, we could bring back equiptment next day if our adventures made it... More

You simply can't do better than Relaxed Guided Dives. We ended up there by accident (the dive shop near our hotel was all booked), but I am so grateful that we did. Rob and Petricia are really wonderful people - incredibly warm, friendly, welcoming, passionate, and intelligent. And as the name goes - very relaxed, laid-back and fun. They scheduled... More

I dived over 4 days with Rob and Patricia, and enjoyed every dive. Very personal attention, very professional, nice dive sites and plenty to see underwater and lovely uncrowded sites. Would have been 5 star, except they only have shortie 3mm wetsuits (which are a little cold for January diving - suggest full length), and it would be nice if... More

I've just been for another trip to Curaçao and one of my first stops is always Relaxed Guided Dives. I've gone diving with them for 4 years now and absolutely value their attention to details & safety, small groups and variety of dive spots. Highly recommended for novice and experienced divers!!

In total, Rob and Petricia guided us seven times during our visit on Curacao. The dives were indeed relaxed and well guided, so the name says it all. During the rides to the different spots, both were open to questions and spoke about life on the island. Probably most important for a dive base except for the guides and instructors:... More

Everything about our dive with RGD was excellent! We first found out about RGD through meeting a fellow diver at our resort. He introduced us to Rob and Petricia and they were everything he had described and more. Their genuine love for the sport is evident from the beginning. Their dive shop is clean, organized and welcoming. The knowledge and... More

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
