DIVE TRIPS WITH SILENT WORLD
Silent World offers daily dive & snorkel trips to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and John Pennekamp State Park. We specialize in personalized service from smaller boats and smaller groups, up to a maximum of 12 or 18 divers. No Cattle Boats here. Although Key Largo may have more dive shops in a twelve mile stretch then any other spot in the World, we have always found a way to separate ourselves from the crowd and bring divers back to our boats over and over again. We provide a friendly, personal and professional dive charter service that we believe is unequaled in the Florida Keys. Our dedication to customer service and passion for SCUBA ensures that you will experience the best possible diving during your stay. Our prices are also extremely competitive, giving you the best value for money available for Key Largo Diving and exploring The Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
Our Dive Charter trips are unique in Key Largo and the Upper Keys. We offer the most flexibility for regular chartered dive trips. We start with our regular schedule of morning and afternoon trips that allows you to pre-book your dive or snorkel trips to your desired sites in advance. In addition, we will run anywhere, anytime, for any reason as long as we have the minimum required number of passengers.

Standard Two Tank Two Location Shallow Trip
For those looking to visit the wonderful shallow reefs found off the Key Largo coast line, then this is the trip for you. Running twice daily, this trip brings you up close and personal with the reefs of Key Largo, including the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park and the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Not only will you visit sites within “S.P.A.’s”: (Sanctuary Preservation Areas where the coral and marine life are superior) but you will also get the chance to visit many of the sites that other charter operations are unable to get to due to the distance from port, such as Carysfort Reef & Lighthouse and Pacific and Watsons reef.
At $85.00 all trips include tanks, weights and complimentary filtered water and juice. Trips are open to all levels of diver, plus snorkelers and riders, with site depths ranging from 5′ to 40′. The average depth of most of the dive sites within the Marine Sanctuary is 25′- perfect for everyone!
Want to make the most of your trip? Have one of our guides join you for the dive. Guides are available for $50.00 for the first person and $25.00 for each additional.
Deep Wreck Double Dip Trip
The Key Largo coast line is covered in wrecks, both natural disasters and artificial reefs. The shallow Key Largo waters with its hidden patch reefs and fringing barrier reef that sit just below the surface have plagued shipping for centuries. Here you will even find the third largest artificial reef in the world, the amazing LSD-32 Spiegel Grove. Sunk June 10, 2002 amidst a media fanfare the like of which Key Largo may never see again, the 510′ vessel flipped upside down with her stern on the bottom and her bow still afloat. There was just enough time for the workers who were trying to finalize the sinking preparations to get off the ship. The reality was that the vessel would sink upside down if nothing were done, making it a poor dive or even un-diveable for most divers. The Key Largo community came together and funded a marine salvage company to pull the vessel on its side where it remained for two years until miraculously, hurricane Dennis late in 2005 pushed it into an upright position. The wreck is now adorned with coral, sponges, schools of baitfish, barracudas, jacks and huge Goliath Grouper.
In addition to the Spiegel Grove, we also visit the USCG cutters Duane & Bibb . See our Dive Sites page for more info!
For recreational divers, trips include two dives with a total run time of around 40 minutes, separated by a one hour surface interval. For those with relevant training, a single long decompression dive can be conducted with a maximum run time of around 120 minutes. Much like our shallow trips, experienced guides are available for both recreational and technical divers. All technical guides have extensive penetration and decompression experience and will be more then happy to guide you into the depths of these wonderful wrecks.
Recreational guides are available for $50.00 for the first person and $25.00 for each additional. Technical Guides are available for $75.00 for the first person and $50.00 for each additional.
Single Tank Shallow Night Dive
Looking to experience a whole new world of diving? Enter the underwater world following a wonderful Key Largo sunset. For many scuba divers, night diving quickly becomes their favorite type of diving. Marine life that hides during the day among the coral is out and about for you get a great look at.
Night dive trips leave one hour before dusk, arriving at the dive site just in time for you to relax and enjoy the sunset before you enter the water. Shallow night dives often visit the same location as the last shallow dive of the day allowing you to experience the location both during daylight hours and at night so you can see just how different they really are.
First time diving at night? Why not have one our guides join your dive group. All of our guides have countless dives in the starlight environment and provide you with an added comfort that makes entering into the darkened world of night diving more enjoyable for those who are not yet comfortable doing a night dive on their own.
Shallow night dives are open to all certification levels. For those who have never been diving at night before, a guide is highly recommended. Guides are available for $50.00 for the first person and $25.00 for each additional. Dive lights are available to rent or buy.
Eels, Lobsters, Turtles, Crabs, and much more are all common sights on our wonderful night dives.
Double Dip Deep Wreck Night Dive
If you are looking for the ultimate in night diving, then this is the trip for you! Exploring the awesome Spiegel Grove during the day is one thing, but at night its a completely different adventure. Just like our day time double dips you can do this trip as a two tank recreational dive or a longer single decompression dive.
Due to the nature of these dives, additional certification requirements are required for recreational divers. Recreational divers wishing to join us on a double dip deep night dive must hold a speciality rating in Night Diving and Deep diving (logged & verified deep diving experience within the last 6 months is an acceptable alternative to Deep Specialty) or a rating of Master Scuba Diver or higher.
Recreational divers with a rescue diver card but not holding the listed specialty certifications may dive as long as they are accompanied by a professional diver or hire a guide to go along with them.
Those doing two dives will enjoy a wonderful Key Largo sunset during the one hour surface interval. Those performing a single decompression dive will experience the wreck transform from a daylight dive to a night dive right before their eyes.
