Dressel Divers' Dive Centers & Shops

20% ONLINE DISCOUNT to discover the best scuba diving in Mexico. We make every dive special! In Mexico, scuba diving is very popular for very good reasons. Every dive is unique and repetitive scuba diving never feels repetitive.

Drift diving is very common in Mexico. During a drift dive the boat follows the group’s bubbles. The drift carries the divers along and fins are used for steering more than moving. You literally take flight underwater and go with the flow lowering your air consumption.

Mexico is also the number one place on the planet for cenote diving. A double tank dive in the Yucatan jungle ponds and caverns is definitely a very unique thing to do and our dive shops are perfectly placed for this.

Pelagic action is also part of a Scuba Diving In Mexico vacation! Whale watching or swimming with whale sharks are very popular with divers.  Even bull shark diving is on the menu for those with an adrenalin appetite.
