Silent World is a smaller operation (two boats) with a retail store front
and a separate dock for launching the boats.  Silent World has ben aroung
for quite a few years (at least 8 that I have been visiting them) and the
quality of the service and staff has been consistenly very good.  The two
boats are not cattle cars and I have yet to be on either with a full boat
of divers.  Dive briefings are conbcise and to the point, with addiional
details available for the asking.  Once you are geared up you move to the
rear of the boat and do a giant stride off of the dive deck and have fun.
I have dived with them before and will continue to do so.  They are
probably the most affordable operation in the Keys their dive packages that
result in a good savings.
