Did two dives today with Caesar. Arrived at dive site quickly after a short drive and short boat trip. Caesar gave very clear and concise instruction prior to 1st dive. Very good dives and good as dive master. Would use him again and recommend to others.

Dive with Cesar over two days in July. I'm a new diver and had lots of questions before I booked the trip. Cesar was prompt and answered all my questions. The gear was in very good condition and the dives were great. I will dive with him again next time.

My daughter Jazz and I had a great time diving with Cesar. His service is more personal in nature and he goes above and beyond to make sure his customers are happy. He also took the time to share his great understanding of the Puerto Vallarta bay area and its history and stopped to take photos with us at a... More

I have been Certified since 1970 and been out with hundreds of operators - call Banderas Scuba, they are the best choice in PV. Smaller shop, so you'll get a small dive group, faster boat, personalized attention and the best knowledge of the local sites. I checked several shops and read good reviews in the diving forums about the owner,... More

Cesar was very communicative, prepared, flexible, and accommodating for our dive. We came to the area for a family vacation and three of us had a little diving experience. We loved our day of dives and found all these positive reviews to be true. Thanks!

All the trip was great and Cesar was super patient with the recap of a trip member! A saint! haha He knows the diving spots and marine life! Small shop but super effective and nice!

The responded very fast to my request online and were available on the dates I wanted. Highly professional dive masters, constant attention and a lot of things to discover - I recommend... More

First, I suck at doing reviews. Second, I have dove with Cesar and Banderas Scuba Republic many times. Third, I have 200+ dives under my belt. Fourth, I like small, competent, professional, nice. Cesar and Banderas are all that and more. While some dives are okay, and others are amazing (2 seahorses and 1 frog fish on one dive!); the... More

I first discovered Banderas Scuba Republic last year after reading the reviews on this site. I was sick of Vallarta Adventures Scuba trips and their unskilled dive masters. Cesar took me on some great dives last November and provided good feedback to improve my diving. I booked 2 dive trips during my most recent trip to PV (I love PV... More
