Welcome! Thank you for visiting us as you reflect on this beautiful location at Curacao.

Divers Republic is your dive center where you can enjoy a level of service, remoteness and tranquility rarely found anywhere else. The 80° F (26.6°C +) water is second to none when it comes to clarity and it is said that more underwater pho to graphs are taken in Curacao than in all other Caribbean destinations.

Home of the world's most pristine reefs, Curacao offers what many claim to be the "best diving in the world." As you peruse our house riff you'll understand why Divers Republic is without equal in dive safety, experience and awareness for nature that build new traditions and memories that last a lifetime.

After looking at Dive shops close to where we were renting a home for Feb 2017, we found Divers Republic fit our needs. They were more than happy to work with our large group of divers, all the gear and tank needs and give us a price that was easy on the pocket book too. They were also able to... More

I had two amazing days of diving, guided by Dario from Divers Republic. Especially the wrack dives were very intriguing. The prices are quite cheap, given the fact that the tours also take place if there is only one participant. My girlfriend could come along snorkeling for free.
