I would definitely recommend Silent World to anyone interested in diving or snorkeling. The captain and deck hand were both very knowledgeable. They took us to a spot where know other diving boats or anyone else at that matter. The captain gave us a good history of the location as well. At the location was amazing coral reefs and lots...

Sean, Thanks for the review. You actually went to Carrysfort which is one of our favourite sites for both snorkeling and diving. We can do regular dives here and drift along three levels (of depth) walls. Glad the crew educated as well as entertained you. Come back again soon! More

Would not recommend. Captain was extremely rude. They gave me leaky gear that they said "wouldn't matter," yet caused me to run out of air in record time. They don't even carry defog on the boat. In fact, they didn't even do a role call. In my 20+ years of diving, this was actually the worst experience I've had with... More

I had an awesome time with Silent World. Every one of the staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in answering any questions I had and giving me suggestions and tips. They really work hard to accommodate everyone's preferences and do what ever it takes to ensure everyone is safe and has a great time. I was not planning on going... More

We have been booking trips for over ten years with Silent World. We are snorkelers and are always treated with the same respect as the divers. They always accommodate us with divers in shallow dives. Nice size boat, never crowded, and safety is very important. They go to snorkel spots that most boats don't do. They actually give you a... More

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

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.

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

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...
