Montego Bay Dive Center, Equipment & Boats

The magnificent Iberostar Rose Hall Resort offers a fully equipped DRESSEL DIVERS scuba centre right on the premises of the hotel.



DRESSEL DIVERS organizes diving every day of the year in Montego Bay! Diving all year round is possible because of the permanent summer weather and resorts that are always open.

We go out several times a day to visit different reefs of the 12 dive sites in very close vicinity of the hotel. We vary reefs every day so you can see a different one every dive trip during you stay. Plus you can repeat the more popular sites if you choose to.

The distance to each dive site will be less than 10 minutes from the pier right in front of the our dive center in your hotel.

Among others we recommend diving on:

Devil’s Wall – 30m/100ft: This Dive site is the epitome of a “Rock `n’ Roll” wall dive. The site is on the edge of the continental shelf that is off the shore of Montego Bay. The top of the wall is at 80ft/24m and it drops vertically down to the ocean bed. A great dive when you’re looking for that sensation of flying under water. This site suites all certified scuba divers, and is a great choice as either the Adventure Drift or the Adventure Deep dive from the Advance Open Water Diving Course.diving center mexico

JAM Reef – 12m/40ft: This site is for those who are looking to see as much marine life as possible. With a series of canyons and boulders, this spot is where we are most likely to see sharks along with a variety of Rays, Turtles, Scorpion fish and much more. It is situated on the band of coral that carries along the North Coast of the Island, which originates from the Grand Cayman Barrier Reef. A great dive for all levels of experience.  

Rose Hall Reef – 12m/40ft: One of our more beautiful and unique sites, a short 10 minute boat ride from the Iberostar Hotel. With a maximum depth of 12m/40ft this is a “finger reef” with the shallowest top of the reef at 5m/15ft. There are series of canyons to navigate through, and as you’ll have magnificent table corals on both sides of you fighting for sunlight, this is a great place to test and improve your buoyancy. This is a wonderful Sunday afternoon site with beautiful scenery that never disappoints.

The Colosseum 30m/100ft: This dive site is one of our more recently discovered ones. The Colosseum is located a 5-to-7-minutes boat ride from the pier at the Iberostar Rose Hall Resort. The top of the reef lies at 18m/60ft and the walls of the reef drops down to the ocean floor. We recommend this dive site to fairly experienced divers who feel comfortable at greater depths. Looking from the surface you will already be able to see some activity making it a really exciting descent. Once going down you will begin to encounter some of our incredible mare life from big to small and if our timing is right we could see hunting barracudas, as this site is usually crowded by greater schools of fish. Another common encounter is the many time favourite turtle. The reef itself is very healthy, with several types soft and hard corals, such as beautiful sea fans and also a lot of macro life. Worth to mention is that this site has rapidly become not only our General Managers number 1 favourite site, but the whole staff of Dressel Divers Montego Bay loves The Colosseum.
