My third trip diving with Banderas Scuba Republic - it just keeps getting better and better! I first dove with Banderas Scuba when doing my PADI Advanced about 5 years ago - now I'm a PADI Instructor with a lot more dive experience, and can really appreciate the quality of this operation! Although this trip was not at the best... More

My Fiance and I did two dives with Cesar at Los Arcos. Fantastic dive and saw an Eagle Ray, water snake, eels, schools of fish. Cesar was very nice and organized. I also arranged a snorkeling expedition for 16 people with him to Marietas Islands (Hidden Beach). This was the way to do it. Vallarta Adventures has a double decker... More

When I first contacted Cesar to express interest in doing my open water cert with his shop, he was incredibly responsive. My questions were answered within an hour of me emailing him. That was very much appreciated as I was planning the trip. Payment was simple and easy and I was on my way. Upon arriving in PV, I met... More

The diving was exceptional and the service was great again with BSR. This is the 4th year that I have used Cesar owner of Banderas Scuba Republic as my diving company with the same results every time, FANTASTIC. I went out with another company on a day that BSR was not available and it was a disaster. The boat broke... More

After doing my research and reading reviews of all of the dive shops in PV, I decided to use Banderas Scuba Republic to do our first dives with after being certified in the states. They are very punctual in replying to emails and give you all the details of the dives before even getting there. I informed them that it... More

We did two days of diving with Cesar and enjoyed both days. It was very easy to get in contact with him and schedule/pay for the dives (his pricing is very competitive). He clearly explained each dive on the drive to the beach and then he even worked with me on my breathing as I am a new diver and... More

Cesar is a fabulous diver and makes the dive easy going and safe. His professionalism is reassuring and he has excellent knowledge of the areas. He is very good at pointing out items of interest. I will definitely use this company again.

I found Cesar and this company through TripAdvisor and sure enough it didn't disappoint. Cesar's small shop is conveniently located very close to the diving spots and he is a very kind and accommodating person. On the way to the dive he picked up a few divers along the way and provided a detailed briefing of the waters and what... More

You have 2 choices when you want to dive in Puerto Vallarta. You can either dive with the big conglomerate that offers diving, ATVing, Skydiving, happy endings, and all sorts of other activities, or you can dive with a business that specializes in diving (Banderas) where the owner is out diving with you and you receive personalized service and unbelievable...
