Other federations are also welcome. We offer boats especially made for diving by a lifelong diver, the owner, who contributed his strong experience to construct outstanding boats for this activity. Our main priority is to guarantee your safety!We organize diving excursions every day for certified divers to the marvelous reefs, that are closest to our hotel, as well as full day excursions for both divers and snorkelers to more remote sites such as to the Cozumel island, the world famous Cenotes in the Yucatan jungle, and an excursion to snorkel with whale sharks

We were staying at Iberostar Paraiso Maya and tried the free scuba try-out in the pool one day. They were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable so we went to the beach and talked to the people there in more detail about Discover Scuba and other activities they offer. We rented a jet ski from them, which was fun and the... More

These guys are everything you want in a dive centre. Professional, informative and know some great dive sites! Even though this centre was part of the hotel I went to playa de carmen to check out other dive centres and none made me fill very confident. I recommend you take the time to visit Dessel divers! Thanks guys!

They gave great dive briefings, had two quality boats, and delivered memorable underwater experiences on the reefs.

I was a total amateur, but I was traveling with my very own Divemaster :) I had a brand new wetsuit which created a problem with my buoyancy and thusly, my weighting (I'm from California so I use a different wetsuit there with...
