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. 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 months in Australia completing his PADI Instructor 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 actually 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 deed was done!” | Tim Neuman
Tim’s diving has 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.
“I freely admit that I find the UK too cold and not to my liking, I like warm waters! However these days I’m spending more time in the office than in the water! That will have to change!” | Tim Neuman
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."
"Work in the shop, diving and all the paperwork have constantly prevented me from finding the time to do my IDC, but fingers crossed, Summer 2017 will see it finally happen." | Kathrin Zaplo
We are both committed to continuing to offer a “fun but professional” service to all our guests, no matter what level they are.
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.
