I choose Cesar and Banderas Scuba Republic from a friend's recommendation, based on their focus on safety. That recommendation was excellent. I came here to do my Open Water certification dives and Cesar was able to accommodate my very tight schedule, despite a prior booking for one of the days I needed to dive, he got me into the water...

Cesar was great in responding to emails and advising availability. Service at the shop was good and quick walk to the boat at the main pier. The boat is small and a little difficult to re-board but adequate for the small number of passengers. It is a short boat ride to Los Arcos and other areas. Cesar is great as... More

My two kids and I needed to complete our open water dives to get our certification, and BSR was a great choice. Cesar was very helpful in setting up the dives, always quick to respond by email and very accommodating. Anibal was our dive instructor and he was great. He is very clear in his instruction and he was calm... More

Cesar is very safety oriented, and gives each customer personal attention. Loved the same boat, and the dive at Los Arcos is always a highlight. Can't wait to return and dive again with Cesar.

Our first ocean dive experience in late November 2014 with Cesar was great. Our cruise ship schedule was a little out of the ordinary, and Cesar still made it possible for us to join his group. The briefing he gave was detailed, and he made sure all of our questions were answered. We also had two people who were not... More

I am a certified diver with over 300 dives around the world. My granddaughter is newly certified. Our charter for two days of diving with Banderas Scuba Republic were simply the "best of show." Cesar is an extremely professional diver with local knowledge unique in my experience. I highly recommend Cesar and his shop to all who appreciate professional, personal... More

Choosing Banderas Scuba Republic for our PV dive was the best decision we made! We originally had looked at going with Vallarta Adventures, and boy am I glad they were booked. I was a little nervous, as this was my first ocean dive, but Cesar was amazing. The group was very small, with only 4 divers and Cesar as our... More

I was initially going to go with PV dives but chose Banderas instead, and I'm glad I did. This was my son and I first open water dive post certification so we were very green. There was another couple with little experience and 3 with a lot of experience. Cesar was very professional and patient with us newbies as well... More

Prior to my trip to Peurta Vallarta at the end of November I looked up dive shops in the Banderas Bay and Banderas Scuba Republic always came out on top. The reviews did not lie focused on safety and experience Cesar guided myself and other divers on 2 dives each day. I was the only one in my group that... More
