Cesar does a great job and Julian my instructor was amazing! I went to them for my open water scuba certification and was impressed with how attentive Julian was with my test. I will definitely use them again when I return in February.

After several fantastic dives with Cesar, my wife and I took additional training at Banderas Scuba Republic. Julian was an absolutely amazing instructor. More than just getting our Rescue Diver certification, he taught us how to be better, safer, more confident divers overall. We are very excited for additional training and additional fun dives. Thanks, Cesar and Julian!

Everytime I come to Puerto Vallarta I always go diving with Cesar and Banderas Scuba. Every trip is made special by Cesar and his staff. They are warm, gracious, knowledgeable and they work very hard to ensure your experience is the best it can possibly be. I've been diving and snorkeling with Cesar for over 10 years now and I'm...

We were a bit late getting to the dive shop but Caesar was very accepting. He explained the dive plan and animals we would see. I would definitely recommend this dive company and go with him again.

I've been visiting Puerto Vallarta for years; however, I recently obtained my certification and decided to dive during my trip this November. I sent Cesar an email inquiring on availability and also asking if he offered discovery dives, as I had two friends traveling with me who were interested in trying it out. Cesar responded promptly and gave me several... More

Absolutely loved diving with Cesar and his crew! We had a great time diving Los Arcos at two sites and I got to see so many porcupine puffers, eels, and a spotted eagle ray! You can bring your own equipment/rent theirs/or a mix of both. They definitely emphasize safety and can accommodate divers of all skill levels. Definitely looking forward... More

Went diving with owner Cesar, very safety oriented and conscientious. Excellent site/dive briefing. I was only diver on trip out to Los Arcos area, had boat to ourselves, and Captain very professional. Saw several new (to me) species, including colorful Moray species, as well as half dozen sea turtles and numerous fish species. No Mantas that day, but not best... More

I am a first time visitor to PV and found BSR'S page online. I emailed Cesar a few times before our trip to get some more information about the dives and his shop. He was quick to answer all my questions so I easily booked two days of diving with him online. I would agree with other reviews by saying... More

Great dives and they were very accommodating for the cruise ships odd arrival time. They moved the start time of the morning dive twice for me. Thanks Cesar!
