We are Rob and Petricia Botbijl, and we live on the beautiful island of Curacao since 2005.
Here we learned Scuba-diving, and soon we knew this what we wanted to do: share our passion with others, teach them how to enjoy the beautiful underwater in a safe and relaxed way!
So Rob said goodbye to the Royal Dutch Navy, and Petricia quit her job as a nurse. We took the challenge and tried to live our dream. Since 2008 we own Relaxed Guided Dives and every single day we enjoy island life, but most of all the contact and the diving with you!
With us, you are in the right place for Discover Scuba Dives, and various PADI and IDD courses. Are you already a certified diver? Then we offer you guided dives from shore, in small groups. So it’s a relaxed way of enjoying the underwater treasures! Safety and service are our priority; our goal is to give you an unforgettable experience!
Of course, you can also rent your dive equipment with us and go diving by yourselves. We will gladly give you advice on where to go, so you see the most beautiful dive sites Curacao has to offer. One condition: you have to be able to show us that you are a certified diver, so don’t forget your certification card!
We are an authorized OCEANReef dealer and service center. In our dive shop you will find all sizes and colors of OCEANReef’s Aria full face snorkel masks, as well as the G-Divers Integrated Dive Masks. We will gladly tell you all about the advantages of these high quality masks and help you find the one that fits your face perfectly!
We are also an official Cressi Dealer. In our fill station we fill your tanks with compressed air or nitrox.
