Recently had the opportunity to dive with Silent World Divers, we got to double dip at the Spiegal wreck. Captain Chris, Dive guide Dan and the guys from the shop were all great. We had great dives and even with strong winds the day was a huge success little to no current on the wreck. We will definitely dive with... More

Thanks for reviewing your trip with us - we appreciate the effort people voluntarily take to do this. The weather was a bit strange when you were here - stronger than normal winds but the seas weren't as bad as we could have expected and, as you note, the underwater conditions were phenomenal :-) Pleased the crew looked after you...

I've used SWDC many times, the crew are always great and their size of operation and no-fuss attitudes mean that the customers usually pick where they dive, which I appreciate! Andrew, Chris, Dan, Max, Kelan and the other guys are laid back and knowledgable. Whether you are a newbie or a technical diver, they are going to help you have... More

Alastair, Thanks for the review and we're pleased you enjoyed your trips with us. We do work hard to get the balance right between safety and enjoyment and, as you noted, the very diverse level of diver qualifications. We certainly do hope to see you again soon More

Staff were incredibly nice! We could not have had a more beautiful day! Convenient location. Appreciated the onboard cold drinks, though we had brought our own. Liked the outdoor fresh water showers to rinse off after our trip.

Glad you all enjoyed the trip and thanks for taking time to write a review :-) We always talk about safety on the boat and an important aspect of diver (and snorkeller) personal responsibility is to keep hydrated: great that you brought your own drinks along but glad you saw the huge amount of water and soft drinks that we...

The crew at Silent World are absolutely amazing. Never has a shop or charter company worked as hard at ensuring everything went perfectly nor have they been so accommodating. They found excellent ways to balance the diving for our mixed group of technical and recreational divers that ensured both groups were able to run the desired profiles without causing the... More

I went diving with this operation several times and I've been very satisfied with their service. Very friendly and knowledgeable crew, awesome dives, nice boat. Both Andrew and Kelan were fantastic to interact with! They do not rush you while out diving which is greatly appreciated! I will return for sure soon.

Guillaume, Thanks for the nice review. As instructors we talk about being relaxed and calm under water. A stressed diver on the surface before the dive will probably not enjoy their experience in the dive. We're glad that the total trip was relaxing and look forward to hosting you again (btw - new boat gets here next week. After sea... More

My husband and I were in Key Largo 4/25 /15 to 5/2/15. Bill dove with Silent World twice and he and I went out snorkeling once on their boat. All the sites we visited were tremendous with lots of beautiful fish to see. The staff were all very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We highly recommend Silent World to anyone looking... More

Mary Thanks for the review and we're happy that you folks had a good time. I know some people are 'concerned' when they hear of snorkelers and divers being mixed on the same boat. With us having smaller capacity boats we can easily mix them so that everybody gets a good trip as you saw. As for the manatee -... More

Guys, Thanks for a great review - we're always happy, and grateful, when people take the time out to share their experiences. I'm glad you were able to get the training in and I could tell that the Spiegel and underwater scooters were the "highlight of someone's trip" ;-) We're looking forward to November when you'll get to dive off...

Once again, an outstanding job by Kelan and Silent World Dive Center in Key Largo. You can tell they are divers by how much interest they show in making sure everyone has a good time and gets the most out of their dives.

Its always nice to see customers come back for multiple dives and we do appreciate the time to write a review of us! Pleased we could offer a break from the 'cold north' (well anything is North of us!) and glad to hear you enjoyed the dives. See you soon :-) More
