Our boats are exclusively designed and built for Dressel Divers under the strict supervision of Javier Ibran, a lifelong diver and the company´s founding President. Dive boats are tailored to provide ample space for equipment and clients, as well as an easy entry and exit into the water for divers. Cylinders are provided on board our boats, the majority of which are catamarans or trimarans (to limit movement due to waves and therefore seasickness). All boats, furthermore, are equipped with a sun roof, fresh drinking water, a radio, a GPS device, oxygen, spare diving equipment, and everything else deemed mandatory by the United States Coast Guard. The engines, all top brands, are subject to ongoing monitoring and servicing by our in house mechanics. Boat captains, moreover, all have First Aid medical training. Last but not least, with very few exception all boats have double engines for increased security.
Dressel Divers has rental equipment that feels like it´s every diver´s own! Our dive equipment is premium quality, regularly maintained and replaced with new and innovative products over time. We offer a wide variety of gear so that persons of all statures and ages will find something that suits them. Our dive centers include state of the art equipment rooms staffed by employees who wash, disinfect and store client´s rental equipment. They also include a place to store personal dive equipment. Our cylinders, filling stations and compressors are operated and maintained by well trained qualified staff in strict compliance with the generally accepted industry standards and all instructions specific to the brands used.
Dressel Divers welcomes divers certified all federations, such as PADI, SDI SSI, NAUI , IDA , NASDS, YMCA, ACUC , CMAS and PDIC.
