Really liked this dive shop. I dived two days with them and both times were great. The first time we had 2 snorkelers and 4 divers with 2 guides. The second time we had only 3 divers with one guide. The guides and boat staff were great. Professional and personal at the same time is the perfect combination. Will certainly... More

At first glance, with a small shop in the Zona Romantica, it would be easy to discard Banderas Scuba Republic in favour of the larger dive operators around Puerto Vallarta's marina. However, it is the smaller nature of their operation that really gives them the advantage. The level of service is extremely personal in nature, and you are left with... More

Cesar is one of the nicest and most caring dive operators I have ever come in contact with. He is all about safety and has a great concern for the Ocean and all of its creatures. He is hands on and is very helpful, making sure you are comfortable. I just love this operation and would give 10 stars if... More

I dove with BSR two years ago and had a wonderful time diving with Cesar (see Jan 2014 review), but it's a small operation so I wasn't able to book them last year when we arrived the week of Christmas. This year I booked ahead, in November, and we were able to get the times we wanted. A small deposit... More

My husband and I had a great time diving with Banderas Scuba Republic. We are both fairly inexperienced divers and Cesar did a great job putting in the effort and time to make us both feel comfortable by doing a bit of a review and letting us take the time we need to feel good and safe underwater. Overall, it... More

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...
