My 17 year old daughter and I made three trips (5 dives total) with
Dressel.   One was a two tank excursion to Cozumel, another was a two-tank
trip from the resort and the last was a one-tank night dive.  The Cozumel
trip was outstanding.  The local trip was moved to a better location
because of poor conditions.  The night dive was also well organized.

I was very impressed with Dressel for their professional staff and the way
they accommodated us to make sure we had a good experience when the local
conditions were not favorable.  They arranged for all the transportation
and equipment and did not charge extra for the services.  The diving was
very good and I am impressed with how well the dive operators protect the
environment in Mexico.
