    I give a big "thumbs up" to Silent World as well. We just returned today from a week long trip to the keys. We had three days of great diving. The store staff and captains were outstanding. Very friendly, helpful, and accomodating. I can't recommend them enough. I will definitely be visiting them again. Hopefully soon.

    Greetings from a cold, dark, deep NJ wreck diver!

    I had the good fortune to spend the whole day on 2/19 out on the "Fathoms O' Fun" with Parrot Island Scuba - http://www.parrotislandscuba.com/

    Can't say enough nice things about them. Nice big boat, good briefings, and most importantly easy going attitude and approach. Kudos to Jerry and Mike for making this Jersey boy feel welcome and at home while on board - and under - the boat!

    In fact when my computer wigged out before my second dive, Jerry was quick to lend me his own gear to make sure I didn't miss the dive. (In doing so he also made sure my BUDDY didn't miss HIS second dive, so that's TWICE AS MUCH customer service, right?)

    Needless to say I'll be a repeat customer with these guys.

    Sirto,

    I wholeheartedly agree with your comments about the Starfish Enterprise and Captain Craig. I've used them about 1/2 dozen times, and every time was a pleasure. I never seemed rushed, they do a proper diver count, and on one occasion a few years back, there was a split decision on the boat as to wreck or drift, and Captain Craig explained that the wreck that was being suggested might be a bad choice due to vis & current earlier that day, and he even ran over to it and sent the DM down real quick to check it before sending us overboard. Glad he did that, as the recon report came back with 10' vis & high current. We ended up with a couple of drift dives for the morning and everyone was happy.

    I'll surely use them again this Summer

    I scanned all the posts of this thread and noted there was no mention of Jim Abernathy Scuba here in Central West Palm Beach. I have used them several times and they are a group of experienced divers including the captains and always have a DM in the water leading the dive. Also for the more adventurous you need not follow the group or have a dive buddy in the water. Its all drift diving so you just surface at the end of your dive and the boat comes and picks you up. They also offer great discounts when you purchase multiple dives. Site can be found here Jim Abernethy's Scuba Adventures: Diving Palm Beach and the Bahamas. Oh they also have a reasonably wide range of sites they visit due to their central location. I think for the most part they stay between Juno Ledges to the north and just south of the Breakers Reef. Good diving to all

    YMMV

    I would like to put my vote in for my boat :D The DEEPER in Boynton Beach.

    Dive Charters International, Inc.

    Of course I feel I am the best boat in town. We do try to make your day as fun as possible and give you a great value for your money. We run to some of the lesser dove reefs in the Boca and Del Ray area as well as doing the northern reefs like the rest of the boat from Boynton Beach.
