Scuba Diving Vacations in the Caribbean

Scuba diving Vacations in the Caribbean - main

“Best scuba diving vacations ever. Nothing has come close yet!!!”

This sentence is genuine. Jennifer V wrote it on TripAdvisor last March 30, 2022. To make you feel this way is why we work every day at Dressel Divers.

So, we thought that instead of telling you what a vacation with Dressel Divers is like, to let guests who have already visited us do so instead, using their review sentences.

If you want to see every type of marine life, spectacular building high reefs, and never have a dull moment; this is your page.

Scuba Diving Vacations in Mexico

Along the Caribbean coastline of the state of Quintana Roo is located the Riviera Maya. Nearby is the second greatest coral reef in the world. It offers you thousands of reasons to venture into its depths and enjoy incredible visual shows. Take advantage of these underwater wonders during your next scuba diving vacation.

I learned SO much about the reef and the creatures and what to look for… One dive master (Bernice) was SO good at finding the BIG things…like eels, shark, barracuda, turtles etc…

Another dive master (Miguel) helped me to appreciate all the LITTLE things like blennies, garden eels, cleaner shrimp, drum fish, etc.

Scuba Diving Vacations In Playa del Carmen


All of the staff from the reservation desk, to the dive guides, equipment people and boat staff are all efficient, professional and helpful. Dive sites are diverse (cenotes, bull shark, drift, wreck, …) and guides are good at pointing out sea life. Marcello, Javier and Juan welcomed me back like I was an old friend (and it was a year ago that I was there!!); what a wonderful way to start a dive vacation.

Cenotes Dives…. so good!

Cenotes are something that really you can only do here and it’s by far the most fun I’ve had in a dive… if you think… not much sea life then what is there to see… you are so wrong… they are just incredible and like nothing, you can imagine! It’s like diving on the moon with the water playing tricks and games… just so weird and so much fun… also technically challenging if you want to make it such… no touching the sides folks… lol.

Scuba Diving Vacations in the Dominican Republic

The Caribbean rhythm is not only about merengue and bachata music. It is about taking time to enjoy doing what you like the most. If you want to scuba dive, then the Dominican Republic is a phenomenal place for your scuba diving vacations.

This year I was diving with Dressel Divers Bayahibe for the second time…

I attended the Saona and Catalina excursions and spend a fantastic time there, in total I had 16 dives 😉

Caribbean at its best: beautiful corals, lots of fish and the fantastic blue sea.

My personal favorite is the St. George wreck. Don’t miss it when you spend your diving vacation here!

I will definitely come back sometime!

Scuba Diving Vacations In Punta Cana


Simply the BEST way to spend your vacation as a diver in the Dominican Republic.

I performed the diving for my Advanced Open Water SCUBA certification with Dressel Divers Bavarro in March 2018 which included a total of 5 training dives + 1 fun dive over 3 days. I had the pleasure of working with three different insructors which were all fantastic. The entire staff was curtious, helpful, upbeat, and a pleasure to be around. The boat was spacious and comfortable. The rental equipment was certainly usable. The dive sites were absolutely beautiful with decent visibility.

Fantastic Dive Vacation

My husband and I spent last week at the Iberostar Costa Dorada and did a total of twelve boat dives between the two of us.

Our experience with the Dressel Divers Dive Center at the resort was excellent.

Scuba Diving Vacations in Jamaica

Scuba diving in Jamaica is a great attraction for people who visit the island.  Maybe, it is because of its beautiful reefs close to shore, as well as various intermediate and deeper walls. In addition, this island has another appeal: It keeps its exclusive ambiance without the usual buildup of visitors who flock to scuba vacation places of such high quality. This is tempting, isn’t it?

A magical kingdom

Our highlights include 3 lion fish that Jessie spotted down in a canyon, 6 squid, Morey eels, hermit crabs in conch shells, lute fish, trumpet fish, all sorts of coral and so many fish. I’ve done snorkel before but scuba was another entire world like a magical kingdom, I highly recommend it and highly recommend Jessie in particular.

I did the Gorilla Package (12 Dives) as I had 16 days at the resort, and had the best vacation of my life. They took me to so many places…. I had no idea all of this was even available. If I could give them 12 stars I would. I am going to book my next vacation soon… and come right back to these guys again. If you are a diver, and want an amazing 2+ week diving vacation…… this is the place!!


I prepaid for my dives saved 20% would like to prepay again looking at Dolphin package 9 +3 or Whale 12 + 6


Our children (12/14) obtained their Open Water certification. We (the parents) bought a family package of regular dives (way cheaper than buying single dives and can be used by everyone in the family; even cheaper when booked prior to arrival (20% off).

Scuba Diving Family Vacation

A scuba diving family vacation means learning to be responsible for the children. You and your dive buddy commit to verify each other’s gear and readiness. The dive buddies never give up, they do not even move away, they depend on each other. In other words, underwater two people work attuned. It often means that the brothers and sister forget their fights to concentrate on diving together. This is called teamwork.

 Awesome Family Scuba Dive Week with Dressel Divers in Cozumel!!!!

Our family of twin girls (twelve-never dove), daughter (27-never dove) son (24-just certified) and my wife and I (certified divers). The entire staff was experienced, patient and super friendly through our full week of training and diving.

Omar was our daughters’ instructor and took all of our family on our first dive together, Palancar Gardens. He went out of his way to help our daughters feel safe, learn and have fun! We will never forget this trip. Dive Master Anna took my wife, son and myself on the Cedral Wall dive and then an amazing night dive where we saw large crabs, lobster, four octopus and a rare Spanish Lobster! She prepped us making us feel confident, was super pleasant. She helped us complete awesome dives seeing a ton of colorful fish, coral, reef life including sea turtles, eels, lobsters, groupers, barracudas, nurse sharks, etc. she was so much fun!!!

I HIGHLY recommend booking your next vacation at this dive shop for both experienced and beginner divers, even kids!

Wonderful family scuba diving trip!

We had a wonderful time with Dressel Divers! My husband and I hadn’t been diving in a long time (did refresher before we arrived) and it was the first dive after certification and first ocean dive for our boys (13 and 15). The dive masters were so good about keeping a close eye on us, gave good advice on which dives would be best for beginners, and took us on 4 wonderful dives. The reef in Cozumel is SO beautiful and so close to Iberostar where Dressel is located. Dressel was organized, efficient and made it all so easy! Our boys are hooked on scuba diving and we will definitely be back as a family for future dive vacations!

What a way to spend a vacation

Initially I was a little nervous but after getting to work with Monse, Eliana, and Juan I have found a new passion in my life. So much so that I not only got Open Water certified but I plan on continuing with even more certifications. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to train me, each of them offering different advice and skills. They are elite in their field and anyone that goes diving with them as their instructors, will have an experience of a lifetime.

Best scuba school, especially with our instructor, Miguel.

In April 2021, we did our PADI Open Water Diver certification with Dressel Divers. We highly recommend this scuba diving school. Our instructor, Miguel, was very knowledgeable, patient, and caring. Miguel made us feel very safe. During our first dive, Miguel faced us and paid attention to us during the whole time. Miguel has a very kind and generous personality and even when we made a mistake, he was very supportive. We had an awesome time with Miguel and felt really lucky that our group was small with max only 4 students. If you are looking for an amazing vacation and want to learn to scuba dive this is the place to do it. We also really appreciate Nasa, Eva, and Milly who were amazing too.
