Relaxed Guided Dives reviews
I did 4 dives with Petricia, one of the owners, from shore. It was very relaxed and easy going. She knew the locations and was able to show me some interesting animals. I had a great time! Ivar from.... more »
I made two perfect dives with Rob in march 2020. We saw 7 turtles in one dive and several barracuda's. Rob knows the dive sites very well and it was fun to dive with him. I can recommend Relaxed... more »
We have been diving many other places but this was one of the best dive shops that we have ever experienced. They are indeed relaxed and easy to work with. Five stars. Be sure to see their shop for recycled plastic items
I received further PADI instruction and multiple days diving at Relaxed Guided Dives. I received fantastic instruction to progress my skills after a refresh dive. I had learned to dive in the Carribbean greater than 5 years past, but this was a very special experience to improve my skills all while taking advantage of the specialty dive types that Rob and Patricia offer (just ask). I had the most amazing dives and thoroughly enjoyed the turtles as most memorable. There is very much good coral and colorful fish, they prove to me a boat is not necessary at all on the island of Curacao to enjoy your scuba tome underwater. Rob and Patricia have slighly different personalities but very much like-able and full of charm and professional respect. They are knowledgeable and warm , relaxed but not in a lazy or lackadaisical manner I've experienced with Divemasters of other cultures in tropical locales. A Dutch mindset of respect for promptness, knowledge, and thoroughness was appreciated as a diver looking to learn. Also, as solo diver I found it helpful to have a rental vehicle on the island to get to this shop and other places on the island. I was glad to be introduced to the concept of full face diving mask. I even bought one from there to transform my snorkeling, simply because I am sold quickly on the natural breathing quality of the concept, just dont have excessive facial hair. All in all, highly recommended dive shop. I beleive they can instruct divers in Dutch, German, English, and local Creole.
