My son and husband went tandem parasailing through Dressel Divers at the Barcelo Maya Resort. The boat captain was very friendly and explained everything well. They had a blast!

We decided on the short snorkel course. Our guide was great and led us over the shallow coral reef and the tropical fish flying past us was amazing. Really highly recommend this trip. Was $49 US each and we felt it was value. We spent a hour in the water after being taken on a boat and then on 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!
