My brothers and I do an annual dive trip to Key Largo. This dive trip was the best yet. Captain Chris and his divemaster were extremely helpful and friendly on all 3 of our dive trips. They changed out our tanks which made the dives more enjoyable as we didn't have to exert additional energy setting up our 2nd tanks.... More

We had the pleasure of diving with Andrew, Keelan and Shawn for 2 days earlier in the summer. We were filming an underwater TV series - so we had an ambitious schedule and were constantly hassling the crew - and the boys delivered everything we needed. The diving was excellent - water clarity was great - and the wrecks, reefs... More

Andrew dives many sites the other operators don't. Rebreather divers determine their own profiles. If you don't like hearing the cattle calls this is the place to go. This is not base on one experience as I have been diving with Silent World a good number of times.

Hi Bob, Thanks for the review! We try to setup trips to match different divers needs - it's not always easy but it looks like we're doing a decent job :-) With regards to tech diving - if people want to get put on our emailing list then they can be kept informed of special tech only trips. The trips... More

Been diving with Silent World many times and can't say enough as to how well things are run. Have a good time with them even when the weather does not cooperate. Good for both large groups (I've brought several down) and even singletons. Part of me wishes I hadn't gotten all my training elsewhere, so I could have gone diving... More

Dave, Thanks for the review. The weather can be tricky to deal with but we always try to get our divers out safely - we sometimes have to balance the disappointment of not going if seas are not appropriate for different peoples comfort levels. Don't forget that as divers we never stop learning and we can arrange teaching in lots... More

My boyfriend and I were staying in South Florida for a few days and decided to book a dive through Silent World. We booked about a month in advance online, which was super easy and convenient. I emailed back and forth with the office to confirm everything and received helpful and timely responses. We were the only two booked on... More

Hi Lauren Glad you had a great time diving with us and thanks for sharing the experience. Its a hard balance between low numbers (great for you, bad for us) and a crammed full boat (less great for you, fantastic for us) so we tend to try and keep from being at max capacity. If 2 or three people book... More

Great for all divers, whether novice or tech. Then boat crew was great with detailed briefings and even some helpful tips as well. We did a double dip on the Spiegel Grove, awesome!! Can't wait to go back and try out their brand new boat. Be sure to ask for Skipper Chris and 1st Mate Lee.

Thanks for the review and we're glad you had a great time at the Spiegel! We work hard to accommodate divers of all levels and the Spiegel certainly is a divers playground that can work for everyone from Advanced Open Water through to the gear laden techies. We too are looking forward to the new boat being ready - Coast... More

This dive center as a whole is Phenomenal, which is why I keep coming back! The staff is professional, knowledgeable and sets the bar very high for customer service level. The reason for my visit this time was for tec diving training. To say that Andrew is a great instructor, doesn't really do him justice. Andrew is thorough and maintains... More

Thanks for the review - blush ;-) It was fun training you for the Advanced Recreational Trimix class and we're pleased you learned a lot. All training is important so we try to go the extra distance to adapt the training, within standards, to each individuals needs. See you (and the rest of the group) soon. More

Big shout out to Silent Divers. Their boat picked me up and returned me to the right boat when I missed my boat drag line and floated off to sea without a hint of shaming. Really appreciate them.

Well that's nice - a review from a customer form another dive shop :-) Sometimes people come up from the wrecks on the wrong line or even no line - as a dive community we're all looking after each other when on the sea: whether it be a 'broken boat' or a diver in difficulty.
