PADI Discover Scuba Diving in Montego Bay

    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the Montego Bay dive center to begin your scuba diving introductory course. 

    Receive one theory lesson followed by a practice session in the pool, then set out on the boat to put your new skills into action on a dive. You'll experience the thrill of diving under the close supervision of your professional diving guide.

    You can do a shallow dive with this training, with a maximum depth of 40 feet (12 meters). The course covers basic concepts and diving skills before going out on the ocean. It's an excellent option if you don't have the time or dedication to become a certified PADI scuba diver or open water diver.

    Your experience ends with return to the starting point in Montego Bay.

    My husband and I have been diving for several years. We look to vacation places where we can dive with Dressel. They are a top notch dive organization. The team at Dressel Jamaica is wonderful! The groups were very small and the staff was very accommodating. During our time

    First, the Dive Master and people at the dive shop were great. Super friendly and helpful, made me feel right at home. The rental equipment could use some TLC (I used two different BCs. They both leaked). The booking process to "save 20%" was horrible. I tried for a week to

    Dear, Thank you for diving with us in Montego Bay. A special thank you for mentioning up front that staff were super friendly and helpful and made you feel right at home. Our apologies for the technical hick up with our web contact form that delayed some messages reaching us. As soon as we were aware it was fixed by our IT department. We presume your messages were amongst those delayed but we cannot be certain as we are having difficulty identifying who you are. We understand your upset about losing the 20% online discount and so please do contact us so we can review this and offer a solution. We wrote you a personal message on trip advisor also so you can give us your e mail and we can check again to see if we can find your messages to understand the timeline of your contacts and your visit. We are surprised by your comments on our BCDs, because our dive equipment and compressors are top quality and regularly maintenance and renewed, based on the strictest quality standards. We could not confirm there were any BCD leak reports with the dive guide or public relations during what we estimate was probably the time of your stay. But please do feel free to send us more detailed information on this so we can be more precise in our review and reply. We would like to conclude by thanking you for your feedback because we are always trying to improve our services and offer explanations in case of doubts. We care for your opinion and hope that you will reconsider your impression of our company with the help of our reply and not doubt in using our services again. Our online booking service is very fast and efficient and our 20% online discount a great saving for anyone planning a trip ahead of his or her arrival. Sincerely Steven Peter Quality Manager

    The dive was really fun. I went on one quick dive and there were 6 other people on the dive, plus a Dive Master. The dive spot was only about 5 minutes away. It was a fun coral dive at about 50-70 feet. Clarity was pretty good and lots of little fish to see. The water was warm,
