This was a great experience. I tagged along with a group of snorkelers, and got to dive with the tour guides alone. They were all very friendly and experienced. The water was a little murky, and visibility wasn't great, but we did get to see a lot of beautiful fish, and a sea turtle. During my second dive I lost... More

My husband and I have been diving all over the world, for over 21 years all with close to a 1000 dives each and we have seen our fair share of irresponsible diver masters/instructors over the years. Silent World Divers take a very responsible approach towards divers. The equipment is good and they dive with small groups. They could have... More

I spent 6 nights in Puerta Vallarta with my husband and our 3 children (17, 14 and 11) and came with an open mind of what side trips/activities we wanted to do. What made Silent World Divers stand out was that they were genuine and passionate about their business but did so in a very low key and understated way... More

Just returned from a week in PVR. Dove three days two tanks with SWD. First let me say all the amazing reviews were 100 % accurate. Jadi and Lorenzo and their crew were amazing. It has been years since experiencing that level of service, they even took my gear back to the shop each day, rinsed and returned it and... More

I emailed all the dive shops I could find in Puerto Vallarta prior to our visit in February to arrange completion of our last 2 open water dives for our Padi certification. Silent World was the ONLY shop that emailed me back. The promptly replied to all my questions, gave me clear answers on cost and already exceeded my expectations.... More

Did two days of diving with these guys and they are great. Stay away from the big corporate 'adventures' places that everyone tries to sell you and go talk to these guys. Good boat, good gear, nice guys, and lots of experience. Thoroughly enjoyed both my dive trips!!!

My first diving experience days before finding Silent World in PV was a with a not so professional diving company. I was relieved to stumble upon Silent World Divers after this experience. I usually research dive operations before traveling, but I was with 3 non-diving friends and took a chance traveling without researching first. Fortunately, I found Silent World ...... More

Lorenzo arranged a custom dive trip for my husband and myself. I do not dive, but we wanted to go on a day trip where I could snorkel and he could dive. Silent World Divers customized a trip just for us. Lorenzo, the dive master, and Dave, another dive member of Silent World Divers, took us to Mismaloya to dive... More

Very nice crew, very professionnal It is possible to make the boat "private" for 6 people for 400 US$ to go to las islas marietas and to make some whales watching.
