“A fantastic experience, a must try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

I went scuba diving for the first time with Dressel divers and it was a great experience! The staff was very friendly and helpful, they always had a smile on their face and made sure to put one on yours as well. The staff was very informative and are excellent teachers. They were able to identify any fish that we came across during the dive. We saw lobsters, lion fish and a small sea turtle. Scuba diving is definitely an experience you must try, its a whole other world down there and the crew from dressel divers are the best people to explore it with! Also I highly recommend the luminous lagoon, a lagoon full of micro organisms that light up when disturbed, it is a mind blowing experience, something you would only think possible in your dreams! If you have the chance do it!

“Consummate Professionals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I just completed my Open Water Diver certification through these folks (May-June 2013). They were very flexible in accommodating my schedule, fun to learn with and meticulous when it came to safety. I started with the "Discover Scuba" experience then upgraded to the full certifying course. They included a deep water dive after certification under close supervision from the instructors. The dive venues were spectacular! I would not hesitate for a second to recommend them to a loved one who was interested in simply trying scuba or doing the full certifying course.

“Open Water Certified”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Dressel Divers was a great experience all week long! I completed my Open Water Dives with Dressel and took one more dive once I was certified. We went to different dive locations each day--never visiting the same one. My Instructor, Jose Cortez was incredible! He was side-by-side with me for all 4 of my Open Water dives. Jose was very thorough and safe, yet fun and easy to learn from. I recommend him for anyone--young or old.

We took the Luminous Lagoon trip one evening, which was a great time--A night boat ride with drinks and glowing water: Amazing

A Special thanks to Marie at the front desk--very helpful and nice; and Capt. Dave for piloting all of our boat trips for the week. Lastly, thanks again to Jose for doing such a great job with me!

“Great Discovery Dive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

This was our first time diving. There were 4 in our group ages 17-46. We were cruising via Carnival Magic. Arrived in Jamaica and took a taxi to Iberostar. Easy to find. We were checked in by the best desk clerk, Mary. Everything was ready and fast. Took a 20min classroom orientation then 30 min in the pool learning the basics. Jose was the best instructor!! He took great care to all of us explaining in detail everything we needed to feel safe and comfortable. We than rode a short boat ride out to the reef. Dive was about 30min total. Felt very safe the entire time. Jose was with us guiding and checking on us all the way. Would recommend this company to anyone!!

“"New Open Water Divers"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

We were in Jamaica from April 29th-May 6, 2013 for a wedding and managed to get our open water certification during this trip. The staff were very knowledgable and professional. With this in mind we felt very safe diving with the group of instructors and dive masters we dove with. We did our pool, dive exercises and exams over 2 days. The staff were very clear that they had to feel confident with our knowledge before certification and dives. Jose Cortez is a great instructor; he adamant that we knew what we were doing before our dive which made us feel safe and him confident in his instruction. Nonetheless my husband and I are now "open water divers" YAY Thank you to all the staff it was a great experience and we hope to go back in the future...Nurse shark siting was a bonus :D
