This was our first SCUBA experience. We went with Dressel Divers since they were located on the sister Iberostar resort and had great reviews. We pre-booked for two excursions plus the training which they do in the pool. The instructors were helpful and make you feel calm when you first go under water and breath through the regulator. They take... More
