Super time with Dressel. Vince runs the shop sooooo well and makes sure all are having fun, while being very safe. Accommodated my husband, a DiveMaster, with some great dives; my children ages 14-19 (all certified) and our friends' children who did a resort course. We really loved diving with Joanna, Faco and all others. Lots of variety of diving... More

Many many thanks to all of the team of Dressel, for their kindness, their skill and the way they've given to me the love for diving. I especially want to thank Joana, with who I concluded my Open Water. A first step for, maybe, a new life ? ;-). See you soon Dressel team :-). Laurent.
