My husband, 9 & 7 year old sons and I went on the snorkel tour to Akumal and the Cenotes with Dressel Divers while staying at the Iberostar Paraiso resort in the Riviera Maya. It was very convenient to have Dressel Divers located right at our resort. We left the resort around 9am, picked up guests and equipment at another... More

Diving was not on the agenda for our recent trip to Mexico, but Will, my 12 year old was desperate to try the free pool session with Theo at the Lindos pool, which led us to find out more from the Dive Centre conveniently located on the beach. From the first moment, there was no hard sell or pressure. We... More

We went with Nick on two different dives and had a great experience! I would absolutely recommend requesting him for any of your upcoming dives. We saw a shark on our dive and he made us all feel very comfortable.

My family just returned from our first family dive. We had a large group of new divers, and I can not believe how organized, polite, knowledgeable, and reassuring this team of people were. They were so patient with all the kids (9 kids from 10-16 years old) as well as the nervous parents. They remembered everyone's names quickly, greeted us... More

We went out four times with Dressel during our April vacation and would recommend them. Admittedly, we are not the world's most experienced divers, but the equipment and the dive boat seemed to be good quality and the dives were professionally and confidently led. The dive sites we went to were quite spectacular (barracuda, turtles, moray, remora), even in comparison... More

We took a trip to Mexico with no intention of learning to dive. However, after giving it a go for 15 minutes in the pool at Iberostar with Theo and Noe we were hooked and signed up to do the Scuba Diver course. We had Renaud as our instructor for all the pool sessions and the open water dives. He... More

I've used Dressel divers before in Cozumel, and hold the company in high regard.
