Very disappointed in diving Jamaica a few days ago. Due to extreme winds the visibility was 3 foot tops. Barely got down 40 feet and lost sight of one of the divers and the dive master didn't even notice or take count. Should have known better when a 25 foot wave almost capsized the boat and dive gear went overboard.... More

This was the best diving experience I have had! Everyone was very friendly and made sure that I was comfortable with a dive before we went on it. I would recommend Dressel Divers Montego Bay to anyone!!

Awesome staff and great instructors! We did our advanced diving certification with them last week, and they were incredibly professional, knowledgeable, and fun. Everything Is organized, and timely! They don't operate on island time like other dive shops I have been to. When we go back to Jamaica we will be going to this resort to dive with them again!... More

We did the Luminous Lagoon tour, and it was great. Our Tour Guide Sharren not only did a great job, but made it a lot of fun too! I would definitely do it again.

We are very pleased to hear you had a great experience. The luminous lagoon is something unique to Jamaica. We add to this the boat ride and drinks on the ride out but it is the good vibe made by our guests and staff that I believe makes it a wonderful trip. Until next time! Warm regrds, Kate More

We decided to try scuba diving for the first time despite our fears. We signed up for the Discover session. The staff was well trained and calmed our fears quickly! We felt well prepared going into the ocean non certified and with our awesome guides (Marcia, Phil, and Kate). It was definitely one of the highlights of our honeymoon and... More

Thank you very much for the glowing review on trip advisor. One of the greatest joys of diving for me is taking new divers out on their first dives. Watching them overcome their fears and begin to explore the underwater world I love so much. I sincerely hope that you will continue diving and complete your Open Water course. Maybe... More

Typical resort activity shop/center. No real interest in customer satisfaction. When we had concerns regarding an overcrowded boat, management was no where around. Even the next morning, on-site manager was to busy with paper work to meet with us. Very disappointed with entire experience and lack of response to our concerns.

I want to say a special thanks to the hard work, kindness and generosity to two individuals at Dressel Jamaica who made my time there a memorable one. As they go about there daily duties mostly unnoticed and without them the place would not be what it is and they are Dinah (in the equipment room) and Romaine. Solid :)

There is great truth in these words. Dinah and Romaine are a wonderful part of our team. I consider myself very lucky to have the privilege of working with them. Their labors may go unnoticed by some but they are keystones in the dive center. Warmest regards, Kate More
