What People Say About Rent Scuba Gear with Dressel Divers

Dressel Divers in CZM at Iberostar is top-notch

For 13 divers and up to 23 dives each (including night dives and several dives with 100 ft*3 tanks), there was not one single issue with any tank, o-ring, or any other gear.

Dressel Divers Cozumel is the best!

They offer rental gear and if you bring your own they have lockers and drying rooms so you don’t need to lug it around with you.

Very professional approach to diving

The best diving off Cozumel is at the south end of the island, & that’s where Dressel is located. The staff is friendly & outgoing, the dive shop has excellent rental gear & the boats are large w/ plenty of room even w/ a full complement of divers.

Should I Buy or Rent Scuba Diving Gear

Regarding renting or buying scuba gear, the best advice we can give is to evaluate your needs and decide depending on them.

A complete set of scuba equipment is not cheap. It would be a shame if after buying you have regrets because you hardly use the equipment. It is also not a good option to discover you have spent a lot of money on rentals because you didn’t buy your scuba gear soon enough.

The way to avoid regrets of any kind is to answer this question: How often do you plan to dive?

Can You Rent Dive Gear Without a Certification?

You cannot rent scuba gear without at least the Open Water diver certification. However, if you want to do a Discover Scuba Diver program or any other diving course at Dressel Divers, we include the scuba diving gear.
