Rarely post comments to travel boards but based on the great service provided by the Silent World Divers shop, I believe it was warranted. My wife and I recently spent a little over a week in Puerto Vallarta and since we love snorkeling we decided to try scuba diving. We heard of several tour companies offering a ‘discover scuba’ excursion. This is where you can try scuba without signing up for any PADI certifications to see if you want to pursue it further without any large investment. After a few days into our vacation we decided to try a ‘discover scuba’ outing with one of the larger tour companies. Before the initial dive we were given rudimentary training on safety, the equipment and on diving. Once in the water at about 10 feet we did some simple drills with the dive master and then went for our dive. We enjoyed it so much we decided to do a second ‘discovery’ dive two days later. After the ‘resort’ dives we decided we would like to pursue PADI certification but wanted to use a smaller dive shop. Following recommendations from others and since it was not too far from where we were staying we visited the Silent World Divers and made arrangements for scuba certification. Yadira really went the extra mile to ensure we had what we needed for study aids, book materials etc. prior to the training in the pool. I cant say enough how patient and thorough she was during the training. She made sure we very familiar and comfortable with every aspect of what we were doing in the water and with the equipment which really made the entire experience quite enjoyable. The two ocean dives were great. After the many drills on and under the surface, she showed us many spectacular sights during the dives. Yadira gave us awesome personal service, along with her boat crew the day of the dives. Cant praise her or them enough. We are returning soon and will be visiting Silent World Divers again for our open water certification.
