Cesar Ortega, a native of Madrid, Spain owns and runs this small looking dive facility in Viejo Vallarta. Don't let the size of the storefront fool you. The real show is of course in the water. Cesar is a true pro. He is knowledgeable, careful, and thorough. At the same time he is friendly and accommodating, and has a sense... More

At 58 years old and not having been on a dive in over 10 years, I thought my diving days might be over. Julian taught a refresher course that taught me more than my original (1989) class in a very brief period of time! Cesar took me on two dives (80 & 50 feet) that were absolutely incredible! Don't have... More

Casar was a great dive guide. He looks after each diver and all the equipment is taken care of. Small groups, a max of 9 in a day. They know the done sites very well and all the species of animals too. Great diving with them!

My family traveled to PV in December 2015. We scoured the streets of PV looking for a good deal, and we found Banderas Scuba Republic just a 5 minute walk away from the beach. Cesar was kind enough to let my family join in on a scuba expedition - not as divers, but as snorkelers. My parents, brother and I... More

An all round excellent dive experience. Caesar was attentive, thorough, calm and professional. His emphasis on safety was first rate but not intimidating. Great equipment. Dive shop was easy to find in PV and close to the dock. Underwater, Caesar was a top notch dive master. His underwater instructions were clear, concise and totally understandable. Great fun for both inexperienced... More

From the minute I contacted BSR I was in excellent hands. Cesar answered my email promptly, took care of all diving matters professionally, and was a smart, approachable and helpful dive master. The equipment was top notch, integrated weights and all. Couldn't have been more delighted. Definitely coming back in 2017!

Cesar, the owner of the shop, did a GREAT job setting up a dive for myself, and snorkel for my girlfriend. He did it on very short notice, and guided himself. he knew the area very well, and directed us to a location that provided great visibility during a time of season that can be the opposite. He provided new,... More
