My Husband and I have been to the DR 3x now, and have gone SCUBA diving with Dressel Divers each time. We initially chose them because they are on the Caribbean side, so there the water is known for being smoother than sites on the Atlantic side. We stayed with them because of our excellent experience, even when staying at... More

The staff were great and professional. The local sites were average. I dove Punta side last year and although these were better I was expecting more as I was told it would be. Not as much marine life as Cozumel that I dove about 3yrs ago as I like to see sea turtles, large Rays and sharks. All dives are... More
