I'm a certified diver, but I don't have a ton of experience. I dove on 2/26 with JC as my dive master /guide. He says he's only been an instructor for 3 months, but I don't believe that. He acts like he's been at it for years and years. He was extremely helpful and patient. I can only hope to... More

I took the Dressel discovery course in 2013 and I loved it so I knew that when I wanted to get my Padi open water cerification I would go back to pariso. I could not do it last year cause I had surgery so I booked it for this year and I am so happy that I did. I booked... More

This was the second year I had dived with Dressel at Ibersostar Parisio and it was as good as the first year Lukas remembered me from the previous time and I hope he is still there when we go back again in October, Most of the dives were very good but you cannot control the conditions underwater or the visibility...

Everything about our dive experience with Dressel was awesome. We booked in advance online, and Lucia answered my many questions with prompt humor. When we arrived, everyone was super laid back and extremely helpful. We had two dive masters on our five dives: J.C. and Theo. They were fantastic! It was our first time diving outside of the lakes where... More

We pre-booked our diving excursions before our trip. There was a mix-up the first day and we didn't get picked up for our original excursion to Cozumel. The manager Sergio fixed the problem by picking us up later that day and providing a private dive so that we didn't miss out on any dives. Aside from the mix-up they were... More

We've done dives with the also-great Dressel Divers in Cozumel but this shop is exceptionally well run. Our guide for the day was David (the Frenchmen) and he was a very friendly, knowledgeable resource for our 2 tank day. We did the expedition/day trip to dive the wreck and Tortuga from Cozumel (via Dressel Divers) and very much enjoyed the... More

None of us had even tried to scuba dive when we arrived at the Iberostar, but after trying it in the pool we signed up to do the PADI Open water dive certification. It was a lot of work and many pool hours, but so worth it as we were able to dive in Cozumel after we were certified. They... More
