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 beauty 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, IDD and IADS 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!
You don’t have transportation on island? No problem, we gladly pick you up at your hotel and return you there after your dive(s).(within a 20 km radius off the divecenter and a minimum of 2 Divers)
Of course you can also rent your dive equipment with us and go diving by yourselves. We will gladly give you advise 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 you certification card!
When you are here, take a look in our fully equipped dive shop, you will find everything you need to snorkel and dive. We have for instance a big collection dive masks, you will surely find the one that fits you best. In our fill centre we fill your tanks with compressed air or nitrox. Our air is checked regularly and the most recent report is always available for you to see.
