At Dressel Divers, we believe that our guests deserve to fully enjoy every dive; with some of the region’s best scuba diving sites close to Puerto Aventuras, we are certain you’ll have an adventure of a lifetime.

In addition to Puerto Aventuras’ ocean dives, the area is also renowned for the many freshwater caverns that dot the Yucatan jungle! Scuba diving in the cenotes is easy from Puerto Aventuras, which boasts many of these spectacular caverns, and requires no special training other than  being a certified scuba diving certification and having good buoyancy control.

Diving in the Puerto Aventuras area is excellent year-round, and particularly appreciated because of the abundant marine life, very good visibility and the unique possibility of diving the cenotes, a phenomenon unique to the Mayan people. With such excellent conditions, Dressel Divers’ centers in Puerto Aventuras are open seven days a week, 53 weeks a year.

FREE NITROX!* With this destination being so popular, with divers doing multiple dives daily, we offer free nitrox to help keep them going.
