Comments I always search out the small local dive operators, as I like to dive in a small group. Diving with Silent World was like diving with your own dive buddies. Yadira, Rodolfo, Loranzo are fantastic to dive with very safety conscious, it is a priority. They know the sites and are excellent guides. The captain Jesus was great at picking us up. They are a must use operator, you will not go wrong. I got some of my best pictures with these people. Boat holds about 8 divers we usually had 6 or less.
