Had a grrat time! Anna and Fernando were the best! Pointed out lots of fish, answered lots of questions and most importantly kept our group safe. First time snorkeling and would highley recommend it those two are phenomenal.

Ana and Fernando were great guides for our small, 12 person snorkeling adventure. The snorkeling itself was great and so were the Marietas islands. Our driver Josè made sure to get close enough for us to see all the amazing birds and crabs on the rocks. We saw caves and water sprays from the tide. My 11 and 13 year old daughters loved it. Our friendly guides made sure everyone got great pictures. Highly recommend.

Dear Rachel,
Thank you for taking the time to write about your great snorkeling trip to the Marieta Islands with us here at Dressel Divers Punta de Mita. Thank you also for highlighting that a trip with us is a more personal experience than being on a huge ship. That this allows us to really enjoy the boat ride which brings us right up next to the neat cave formations, blowholes, crabs, blue footed boobies, and so on. We snorkel in small groups for the safety, comfort, and enjoyment of our guests.
We are glad that you appreciated our friendly service, and we thank you again for your recommendation.
We hope to see you again soon,
Your Dressel Divers Punta de Mita Team

The professionalism of the staff, especially the Dive Instructor Anna, was impressive. This was an amazing experience. After diving for 20 years around the US and South America, I was impressed by the high standards of the operation and the professionalism of the staff. The dive site visited was decent, Anna went out of her way to make all divers safe, confortable and to make the dive enjoyable. I highly recommend this dive shop instead of the local shops in Punta de Mita and Pto. Vallarta.

On vacation I was brought to attention a hut on the beach and from there got my Open Water Diving Certification. I had the time of my life during the whole course. My diving instructor Anna was nothing but awesome. She had so much passion to teach diving the right way. Not only that she was super amazing, fun, and very personable. The dives were always breathe taking and she made sure you were nothing but comfortable. I couldn’t of wanted anybody else to have brought me to my first time diving. It was an experience of a life time! I would recommend anyone who visits to go see her.

My wife and I decided to try scuba diving. I've never done it before but always wanted to try. I was very nervous until we met our incredible scuba team of Anna and Omar. These two made our experience beyond belief special. I'm a huge control freak and hate being on planes, under water etc.... Anna and Omar made me feel comfortable in an instant. They are passionate about what they do and they guide you every step of the way without ever feeling rushed or pressured. We had a great long session in the swimming pool first before our dive and learned a ton of tricks and tips of how to communicate under water, tricks on how to breath easier, and all kinds of safety techniques. By the time we were done with our pool session we both felt like pro's going out on our dive. Anna is an incredibly detailed teacher and she makes the learning experience fun and interesting! The dive itself was fantastic. Going out to the Ocean on a jetski and a boat to our dive point etc... We can't wait to come back and do it again. We highly recommend you request Anna and Omar, you won't regret it. You guys rock and we hope to see you again soon.

Dear Alex,
Thank you for taking the time to recommend learning to SCUBA dive with us. We are glad that you had the experience of a lifetime and are planning on coming back for more. Learning any new activity requires some knowledge and some practice. That your learning experience was fun and interesting speaks to our great instructors and our having plenty of time built into our introductory course at this location so that everyone can feel comfortable, confident amd ready to go for their first dive.
We're looking forward to your next visit,
You Dressel Divers Punta de Mita Team
