Comments 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.
