I did some diving with Dressel divers while on holiday in the dom rep. They were reasonably priced, but I did get a better deal by pre booking before I travelled.
The dive sites are of a good quality, withe best diving for wildlife being on the south coast, so book a excursion to Catalina island.
The local dive sites are also good with lots of canyons and swim throughs.
The dive guides where friendly and knowledgeable about the sites, thanks to jase and chris for some excellent dives.
My only gripe was the $20 per taxi ride from my hotel which was only ten minutes drive away, I have dived around the world and this is the only company that didn't offer free pickup and drop off, hence only four stars. Just a small annoyance, but never the less an extra cost which did offset the pre booking discount I received.
Overall a really good diving experience and I would use them again.

My family and I are just back from one week vacation in Bavaro. We ( including my daughter 13 and son 16) are certified divers . As far as dive centers are concerned, we give credit to safety procedures, well maintained equipments, properly managed operations and of course passionate people.. Dressel divers center in Bavaro exceeded our expectations on all these aspects. We dived with them every day during our stay and we were very impressed by the level of professionalism demonstrated by all the members of staff we were in contact with. Special thanks then to Baptiste and his team, as they all have contributed to make our vacation a success. Pierre

Excellent service and overall experience. We took an all day snorkeling trip that included two snorkeling stops, lunch, and a shallow water stop for a swim on the way back. The guide during the snorkeling was the best, he quickly identified her ability to swim, and took her by the hand below the surface to show her things up close.
