I visited Monetgo Bay Jamaica last week on an anniversary trip and I decided to get dive certified while vacationing. On the first dive I spotted a 7' nurse shark, a lion fish, an eel, a puffer fish, and a large sting ray. Needless to say, I am hooked. Thank you Dressel Divers, Rachel, Ian, and Kate for the awesome,... More

The dive sites chosen for the dives I enjoyed were great. We also enjoyed a snorkeling trip the same trip as one of the dives, stopping at Margaritaville for some additional water-fun and food. The staff at Dressel/Jamaica are all awesome people and I'd recommend diving with Dressel Divers whenever the opportunity presents itself! Kate, Ian & Dani were all... More

The only reason I gave Dressel Divers a 4 star rating is because the dive operation was organized and the equipment was decent. Jamaica has been over fished and the reefs have been damaged by tropical storms and hurricanes. Therefore, there was not much to see on the dive. The most exciting thing that happened on the dive is we... More

I am an Advanced Adventurer with 10+ dives. We did an afternoon shallow dive with Ian. The experience exceeded my expectations. The dive site was close by and had great marine life, even with fair visibility and choppy waters (which from what I understand are not typical conditions here). Ian was professional, friendly, and made sure that we got the... More

While on a family vacation, my daughter and I, both certified open water divers, expected to just do a dive or two. We met the people at Dressel and had such a good time that we got our advanced open water certification. Ended up diving 7 dives each. Would highly recommend Dressel. All staff exceptional, friendly and helpful. One of... More

My experience with Dressel was a mixture of things. We stayed at the Iberostar Suites property, so the location was ideal to take advantage of all Dressel offers. We did the banana boat ride, parasailing, and lagoon tour for fees and took advantage of the kayaks during our stay. The activities themselves were a great success that we thoroughly enjoyed....

Booked a private excursion for 50 and they were super helpful. We had 2 boats head out on very choppy water. Had been described to us as a calm sunset cruise, but by the time we headed out after signing all the waivers for a group this size, we barely saw the sunset. Luminous lagoon was a once in a...

Hey! Glad to hear back from you! Generally, one would describe the lagoon as calm, but the journey there is sometimes more choppy as you are going by deep water in the open ocean against the flow of the waves. The ocean can give us her good days and her bad, but the lagoon is so unique that it merits... More
