Overview

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 photographs 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.

Amazing little beach in Curaçao where you can expect a surprisingly professional dive team, great instruction and some amazing shore dives. Bob and team impressed us completely and packaged some truly memorable dives. Just ask.

Bob, Rolf and Shauna (?) were all so helpful and pleasant to work with. Rolf was especially cheerful and went out of his way to be accommodating. Bpb worked with our large group to provide excellent fair pricing. I would definitely use them again.
