September 17th 2018, Technical Diving Services lost it’s founder and owner, Chris Verstappen. Chris had worked on Bonaire as a diving instructor for over 15 years, and has left a firm stamp on the local diving community.
Chris was one of the most experienced and thorough instructors / instructor trainers on Bonaire, as well as a very hospitable and fun guy to be around. His famous greeting to first time guests would be: “coffee?”. Which after a few visits would change into: “yes please”. He will be sorely missed by many.
