with Dressel Divers Dive Center & Shop

20% ONLINE DISCOUNT in the best Scuba Diving in Montego Bay. Tropical bays are known for their great scuba diving, and Montego Bay is no exception, with dive spots that meet the expectations of novice and expert divers alike. Scuba diving along the entire length of Montego Bay and beyond is so intense that it will awaken your senses and leave you longing for the next dive.

The area’s abundant marine life and enviable visibility will have scuba divers wanting to jump in, again and again. The waters in front of the Dressel dive shop are fairly virgin when it comes to diving, which makes for unspoiled ocean bottoms with coral of surprisingly good quality. Above the water level, visitors will enjoy the hilly coast, dotted with plantations, which can be viewed from the dive boat.

Jamaica’s beaches and scuba diving were seemingly custom-made to ensure total relaxation. Like most tropical bays, Montego Bay is perfect for scuba diving. Moreover, certain areas considered a natural park are perfect sites for fish and divers to meet.
