Hi I am Captain Bob! Originally from Fort Lauderdale. But I have lived in the beautiful Florida Keys for 50 years. I have been a commercial captain the the Keys for over 30 years…but taking boats to the Bahamas much much earlier than that. But that is a story for in person!

Hello, my name is Mike. I was born in Utah and raised in California and Arizona as a child.

I joined the Army at the age of seventeen after graduating high school. I served for twenty two years as a Combat Medic and as a Physician Assistant.

My retirement present to myself was to become a Dive Instructor and teach overseas. My first teaching job was in Fiji, and I spent another year teaching in Mexico. However, Key Largo is my home now and I love to share our reefs with all that come visit our magical island.



Hello! I was born and raised in the Florida Keys. I was always on and around the water while I was growing up. I began my career working on commercial dive vessels up and down the Keys since 2017. It was supposed to be just a summer job…. Oops. From deep ship wrecks to shallow reefs, I have seen almost everything Key Largo has to offer yet everyday I am still amazed by the beauty of our reefs. Come on out and see what it’s all about!



I’m Caesar and I became Dive Certified and began Scuba Diving August 1986. I have been Diving ever since for both work and pleasure. My childhood friend and I used to watch Jacques Cousteau’s Under Sea World and as a result became interested in and wanted to experience the undersea world ourselves, so we became Dive Certified.



Hello future Silent World Dive Center visitors! My name is Brad and I am your friendly Captain or Scuba Instructor. I am originally from Detroit and spent the majority of my years as a Porsche Mechanic from Detroit. However Detroit had one big problem – no sailing, and it was cold…basically always. So I headed south to Sunny South Florida!



Hey I am Kevin! I was born and raised in Arizona, and married with three children. I served as a police officer for 24 years as a K9 Officer, Sergeant and Detective retiring August 1, 2021.
