Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I completed my diver training with René at Red Snapper Diving. I can’t say enough good things about him. An excellent teacher, I came to trust and respect him right away and he took me through all of the drills competently and thoroughly, giving me a lot of confidence and a bag full of valuable skills.

René also made the two days I spent with him thoroughly enjoyable. We had amazing dives (even during instruction!), fun lunches together and he kept us to a pleasant and restful pace.

I can’t rate him highly enough. I’ll be back on Curaçao next week and hope to dive with him again.

This was an amazing experience. Everything was explained well with no fuzz or muss. Helpfull tips and tricks that were not included in the literature were also given. Also great stories about diving all over the world were paired nicely with good food and bad jokes. All in all made me happy I decided to get my PADI!!!!

Thank you Rene! Diving with you was pure pleasure! The communication prior to the dives was very helpful. You are a kind person taking the time for your clients. The equipment was in good shape. You were flexible on the choice of dive spots. Double reef was a guaranty to see many turtles and Tugboat was with 77min one of my longest dives ever. As the pictures proof we saw nice things and it is only due to the cloudy day that the photos are not better. Your price were fair and the double dive was worth its money. I wish you all well and can only say that I can only recommend you as a dive instructor and buddy.

Wat een geweldige ervaring! In drie dagent tijd heb ik de PADI 'open water' cursus voltooid. Rene is een erg ervaren duiker die je ontzettend goed op je gemak kan stellen. Hij neemt alle tijd voor jou en de oefeningen die je moet doen. Ik vond het erg prettig dat met alles wat we doen, hij rust uitstraalt. Ik ga nu met een vertrouwd gevoel duiken! Rene is een topper, zowel boven als onder water!

What a great experience! Within three days, I managed to do the PADI 'open water' course. Rene is an experienced diver who can you put you at ease very well. He takes the time for you and takes the time to explain the exercises you have to do. I really liked it that Rene himself is very calm in everything that he does. I feel very confident to dive now! Rene is a great guy, on land and in the water!

I did my Advanced with Rene and my girlfriend did both her Open water and Advanced. He's super flexible, picks you up and drops you off if needed. He'll tailor your course to your other plans and your progress/diving skills as much as possible.
You can rent your equipment from him if you just want to go for a dive at one of the billion dive spots on the island.
Definitely go to the Superior Producer wreck with him if you have the chance. It's the coolest dive on Curaçao as far as I'm concerned.

I was very lucky to have the chance of knowing this very special and experienced diver Rene de Visser and his Diving School "Red Snapper Diving" at Curaçao Island. I spent a hole month diving with him and also made the Nitrox course, he showed me the best places in the Island and I assure all of you that he gave me the opportunity of doing in his company the best wreckdive I have done in my life until now, in the Superior Producer. So don't miss the chance of having the best diving experience ever in Curaçao: look for Rene/Red Snapper and HAVE SOME FUN :)

Diving with Rene was great!!! It seemed more like diving with a friend we knew for ages than with a instructor we had just met. Made the three days even better. The dives were awesome and loved going to all the different spots. It was also great having my husband diving with us, he’s a divemaster and it was no problem for him to tag along. And on the last day we didn’t find a babysitter so Rene was ok with us bringing our one year old son, so he and my husband could hang out on the beach. Thanks Rene for being so laid back and for such an amazing experience!!! Whenever you’re in the Netherlands we expect you over for a beer ;)

We spent a wonderful 2 days with Rene. Our experience went far beyond just fantastic dives. We explored the island, had picturesque meals and sunsets and enjoyed his pleasant companionship. As far as the diving goes, I felt very safe diving with Renee. One dive we saw so many turtles and a fish ball that was beyond anything I could ever imagine. Goes down as one my best dives ever!

We (group of 3) completed the PADI Open Water diving course with the help of René, and can definitely recommend the Red Snapper Diving School in Curacao to everyone! René is an amazing diving instructor and he really took the time to teach us everything at a good pace. Due to his flexibility, the course was both instructive and very fun (diving at various locations on Curacao)! We'll definitely come back soon :)
