Comments 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.
