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.

My 1st PADI experience, so I have nothing to compare to. I paid 6300MX for PADI's Open Water Dive Cert, a 3-day venture. Both Open Water days spent @ Los Arcos, many tour boats on site, limited visibility -- better conditions in August/September, apparently. 8 divers in our 20-foot boat, a mixture of students & certs. Staff very friendly. Caveat:... More

Had a great day out with the team at Silent World Divers today. Fully equipped boat with great gear, small groups mean great service and short wait times. Myself, my boyfriend and sister went today and it was just us with the Dive Master. He was friendly and spoke great English. We saw heaps of fish an sting rays, even... More

I have over 300 dives, I always search out the small local operators when I travel, as I don't like the cattle car diving experience. Once again I hit a home run with Yadira, Lorenzo, Rodolfo and the captain Jesus. My title says it all. Diving with them was more like diving with your friends that have a boat and... More

Sabine and I joined Lorenzo and company to the Marietas Islands from Puerto Vallarta on November 16, 2014, and it was well worth the money. We travelling in their smaller boat, but only took 50 minutes to get out to the Island. We had 3 divers, with the 2 of us snorkeling. They took good care of us, and it... More

My sister and I were interested in diving (we had never done so before) and my mom and aunt wanted to go snorkeling. My sister and I had a pool session the day before we were planning to dive and Rodolfo was great at... More

Since we have limited diving experience, we asked for an instruction. After a clear (and funny) explanation, we had some practice in a pool. Then we a took a boat to a diving site and had two great dives. The instructor showed us various sea creatures and we even got to hold an octopus! Everything was really professional and the... More

I met Lorenzo, the Dive Master and owner of Silent World Dive Center, the day after I dove with the folk from Chico's Dive Center. Lorenzo is a short (as I am), wiry, personable, English fluent ball of energy. Without a group to lead, he and I drove to the far south end of the Bay of Banderas to a... More
