About Relaxed Guided Dives:
Relaxed Guided Dives is a family-business run by Rob and Petricia Botbijl. We have been living on this beautiful island since 2005. Diving is our passion which we like to share with you! We offer guided shore dives and work with small groups. Enjoying the underwater treasures of Curacao in a relaxed way!. Of course you can also come to us for Discover Scuba Diving and for PADI and IDD courses. You’ll find more information about those further on this site. No transportation? No problem, for a small fee we pick you up and return you to your accommodation. Our van is equipped with all safety materials. You can rent dive-equipment from us, on the condition that you can show you’re a certified diver, so don’t forget you certification card! Come and take a look in our fully-equipped dive-shop and airfill station. Nitrox available!!

Business mission/values:
It's important to us that our guests (learn to) dive safely and in a relaxed way. All guests have to have a good experience, feel at home and welcome.

About You, "The Professional"...

How I was introduced to the professional diving industry:
After doing my Ow Course and AOw course I worked in a dive shop, the one i now own. That's when I decided to be a dive professional.

What I like best about my job:
Showing guests how beautiful the underwater world is in a very relaxed and safe way. My triumph when someone does a DSD very nervously and afterwards say it was the best experience ever!

Words of wisdom for those starting their career in the diving industry:
Be yourself in your contact with guest- divers.

Best way to keep a competitive edge:
Make sure you offer service for an affordable price.
