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

Thanks for taking the time to review us - we certainly do appreciate it. Loved your comments about Dean. That's how we try to teach all our students with empathy and at your pace. We're really glad you went away feeling a more confident diver, that's really important to us! 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

We dove with Silent World last month. The staff was initially extremely responsive and we exchanged lengthy emails with the owner, as well as a few telephone calls. Silent World customized a dive trip for us which included two days worth of diving, including a night dive. We had a very positive experience prior to our dives. During the dives... More

Hi folks, Firstly thanks for joining us for your trip. I know a lot of work went into the trip and we worked hard to reschedule other divers to make your dive needs achievable. I'm sorry the trip was tinged with some anxiety regarding other divers. We saw the tension building underwater and on the boat and action was taken... More

My son and I recently selected Silent World to do several days of diving. It was a great choice! The boat was great and the instructors and Captain were extremely professional and knowledgable.

After a lot of research, I chose Silent World for our SCUBA vacation. This was my initial certification, my 2 sons' (20-something) advanced diver cert, and fun diving for my husband. I chose Silent World because of the confidence instilled by Andrew. We dove for 5 days. When I was anxious about breathing under water, they assigned a wonderful instructor,... More

My family and I were looking for a quality outfit to get certified with on vacation and after talking with many places we decided on Silent World and it was the right decision.

Outstanding experience with Silent World in Key Largo. I have dived with most of the outfitters/dive shops in the upper keys and Silent World surpasses them all with personal attention, quality communication, safety, and great diving. Love the smaller boat and tailored program to what the customers wanted. Highly recommend.
