Welcome To Our Dive Center.

We Look Forward To Sharing Our Passion For The Underwater World With You!

Blue Experience is owned and run by
Tim Neuman and Kathrin Zaplo

We are both committed to offer a “fun but professional” service to all our guests, no matter what level they are. We offer small dive groups (4 divers to 1 guide) and we like to arrange the groups according to their certification level. This way we can make sure that our guest get what they ask for.

We have a great team of professionals here, all PADI certified Instructors or Dive Masters and with their help we can show you the great diving we have here, waiting for you in the Riviera Maya.

Tim Neuman

CEO & Founder

Tim started diving in 1993 whilst on holiday in the Maldives

Bitten by the bug, it very quickly became his passion, and in 2002 he finally left the "Rat Race" back in the UK and spent the next 5 month in Australia completing his PADI Insturctor course and exams. Soon after leaving Australia he landed a job back in the Maldives and stayed there until early 2010.

"It was time for a change of scenery, and I had been looking to buy my own place for a while. Blue Experience actualy came up for sale whilst I was here in Mexico looking at another dive school. They impressed me with their professionalism and high standard of customer service and after long discussions we came to an agreement and the deedwas done."

Tim s diving had taken him all over the world, having dived in Australia, Bali, Curacao, Fiji, Guam, Egypt, Maldives, Mexico, Western Samoa and of course the U.K.

Kathrin Zaplo

Diver & co-Founder

Kathrin is relatively new to diving, having only started in 2009. The lure of warm waters, no snow and no ice was more than enough to tempt her to pack her bags and leave her home town of Munich and join Tim as a partner in the business.

“After completing my Divemaster Course I now have to find the time to finish my Instructor Course” says Kathrin, “ I have set myself a target for the year 2017, but the work in the shop and the paperwork is keeping me occupied."
