Had the best experience ever! My husband and I had our first diving trip at Key Largo! Highly recommend Silent World Dive Center for the adventure of a lifetime! Captain Kelan and Instructor Andrew were very professional and knowlegeable and well equipped. Felt very safe! Will definately be back!

Thanks for the review folks, we do appreciate it. I'm glad we were able to show you a good first time here in Key Largo. There's so many sites and diverse activities it's no wonder it's labelled "The Dive Capital of the World". Come back again soon and we can continue your diving adventures :-) More

My girlfriend and I recently completed eight days of diving with Silent World. The new-ish owners continue to set the standard for customer care. Awesome experience. The captain did a great job of mixing up the dive sites while keeping us away from other boats and on great dive condition sites. We primarily did shallow reefs. This is one of... More

Guys, Glad to hear you had a great time when you visited us a couple of weeks ago. Pleased we could help out with the Halcyon gear - floating under a (custom colored in your case!) wing and back plate really opens up a new world of comfort and improved trim so important for divers. Also pleased that you're hoping... More

I was really impressed with the services that Silent World Dive Center offers. Kelan the Captain performed an amazing job running the boat and Chris the 1st mate made sure all were properly geared up and safely on and off the platform. Our guide Jonathan was the BEST. He was very helpful with loading and unloading our gear, and with... More

We just returned from a great week of diving in Key Largo with Silent World. Both my boyfriend (who is a tech diver) and myself (not a tech diver) had a wonderful time. The Capitan always knew the best sites to take us to and the crew were fun and knowledgable. They were especially helpful with fitting me for a... More

Hi folks, Was a blast having you two on board! Remember you've ordered a back plate (& custom coloured) wing - you'll be a tech diver before you know it :-) Look forward to seeing you both again sooner rather than later More

I have used a few operators in the Keys, and I can say with certainty that none were as good as Silent World. The customer service was excellent! I can’t say enough good things about the staff. From rescuing my camera when it came loose to searching high and low for a missing dive computer, these guys really took care... More

I booked a dive for my friends/family from Maryland and Florida with Silent World. 11 of us in my group in total. Very courteous and professional staff. Highly recommended. Thanks for a great trip - David Tripp

David, It was a pleasure working with you to setup a private trip of diving and snorkeling for the family at Carrysfort and a "spot of lobstering" on the way back in - hopefully there was enough to go round for everybody ;-) Keep in touch and hopefully we'll see you all again when you're next in the Keys.

After using many different dive operations over 35 years of diving Key Largo I've finally found one I truly enjoy using every single trip. When Silent World makes a commitment they follow through. Dives are not cancelled as long as conditions are safe. They have taken me to many less often visited reef and wreck sites and are great at... More

Thanks for the review Dan. It was fun taking the scooters out for a run yesterday on both the drift and wreck sites. They were dives that didn't really feel like work :-) We'll try and find some more gems for your next trip down here - I thinking of a tour around Carrysfort. There's some deeper walls there well...

Silent World did a wonderful job getting my entire family certified for open dive including several nervous nellies in the mix. They provided personal service and gave us plenty of flexibility and patience. Jonathan in particular was a very professional and extremely competent instructor plus a good guy. I would recommend Silent World to any folks who are looking to... More

Inside every nervous nelly there's a good diver fighting to get out and have fun. I know Jon had a good time teaching you, and as we all should, learnt some new skills to add to his already extensive dive instructor tool box. Come back again soon. More

I recently did my AOW training at Silent World after other plans fell through. They came in at the last minute and made it all happen. Dean Hatten was my instructor. He was patient and encouraging, but pushed me when it was needed. I improved my skills and my confidence as a result. The whole team was very helpful and... More

Not enough good things can be said about Silent World. They operate one of the best charter outfits for advanced and technical divers yet are friendly and helpful enough to accommodate open water recreational divers. The guys have gone off the charts above and beyond my expectations (which tend to be very high) and have done so with a smile... More
