Joost Boerman, Guide


Hello My name is Joost Boerman born in the Netherlands, but at the age of 20, I moved to Sunny Island, Aruba. Here I lived up and off for more than fourteen years. I lived in Colombia, Australia, America and The Netherlands. I always had a great passion for the underwater world, but I started taking it more seriously in Aruba and became a divemaster. Over the years, I started with a little GoPro, but in Australia, I bought my first real underwater camera and started my new addiction, " underwater photography ". During covid, I built a camper van with my dad; when it was finished, I travelled in the winter to Tromso, where I experienced my real cold water dive and was hooked. The year after this experience, I came across a job offer as a diver/snorkel guide here in Iceland with, I didn't think twice and applied immediately! Luckily they hired me, and now I can call Silfra my office.
