to be born in the water anyway. Diving is her passion.
Siggi is responsible for the Shop with the Tropical Divers. The choice for Bonaire was easy for her after a first contact on vacation, since she felt in love immediately with this marvelous island. Beside the administration she takes care - just like the remaining team of the Tropical Divers - about training and consulting of our divers. From the first contact at Try Scuba Diving up to the professional education, including all specialty classes from SSI and DAN, Siggi will be happy to assist you. (

Claus Harald (Harry) Neumann, SSI Instructor Certifier, DAN Instructor Trainerwir_über_uns_CHN2
CHN_UW_2is our Bonairean Dinosaur and the only one, who profess himselve publicly to his second first name. He is responsible for the SSI Instructor Training and also working as an SSI Certifier in the Caribbean.

As a specialist for underwater photography it is unusually to find him without strobe and camera underwater. Only for the education of divers he puts these gladly to the side. If you like it silent, ask Harry for a Discover Rebreather dive. He will be happy to explain you all the pro’s and con’ of this special kind of diving ... and will take you out for a dive.

If he is not diving he cares for administration and marketing or tortures our computers and servers. On special request he will prepare his Caipirinhas at our Pool bar. Some people say, his Caipirinhas are world-famous.

If you like to know something about the dive spots on Bonaire or about underwater photography ... please ask (
