The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems mysterious, yet so alluring. Although you’ve been scuba diving at a site many times before, at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it comes to life under the glow of your dive light. The scene changes as day creatures retire and nocturnal organisms emerge. If you’ve wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.
What you learn
Scuba diving at night teaches you to focus on what you can see in your light’s beam, on controlling your buoyancy by feel, on staying with your buddy, and on paying attention to details you may overlook during the day. During three night dives, you’ll practice:
- Light handling and communication techniques
- Entering, exiting and navigating in the dark
- Identifying how plants and animals differ or change behavior at night
The NIGHT DIVER Specialty consists of three dives on three separate evenings. If you are a certified AOWD Diver, and have completed your adventure dive as part of the AOW course, you can complete this Specialty faster. Please contact us to schedule.
