They offer a wide variety of gear so that persons of all statures and ages will find something that suits them.

Our cylinders, filling stations and compressors are operated and maintained by well trained qualified staff in strict compliance with the generally accepted industry standards and all instructions specific to the brands used.
  • The boats are exclusively designed and built for Dressel Divers under the strict supervision of Javier Ibran, a lifelong diver and the company´s founding President. Dive boats are tailored to provide ample space for equipment and clients, as well as an easy entry and exit into the water for divers. Cylinders are provided on board our boats, the majority of which are catamarans or trimarans (to limit movement due to waves and therefore seasickness).
  • All boats, furthermore, are equipped with a sunroof, fresh drinking water, a radio, a GPS device, oxygen, spare diving equipment, and everything else deemed mandatory by the United States Coast Guard. The engines, all top brands, are subject to ongoing monitoring and servicing by the in-house mechanics. Boat captains, moreover, all have First Aid medical training. Last but not least, with very few exceptions all boats have double engines.
  • Almost all staff obtained their professional diving qualifications with Dressel Divers' own PADI Career Development Center. They are therefore trained within our own philosophy and in harmony with the objectives of Dressel Divers. They will give you not only a great dive but also a very safe one!
