Murphyn Henar Foundation

Murphyn, also called Murph, was a very well known Divermaster on Bonaire, who always had the desire to train the younger staff members in the Dive Team. He looked after them as a father figure and taught them all he knew about diving and the wild sea life of Bonaire.


Created in Memory of Murphyn Henar.

Murph was patient and very friendly. He worked for Buddy Dive from 1993 to 2019. Unfortunately, he passed away unexpectedly in 2019, due to health issues. This foundation was brought to life, to honor his great spirit and memory.

The Foundation is giving the young adults on Bonaire the opportunity to learn to dive. By training these young people, who do not have the funds to do so themselves, we want to create a future for them in the diving industry. By giving them the opportunity to become a dive professional, they will be able to make a living for themselves. It is our goal to give the local youth who are interested in becoming a dive professional, the chance to do so.
