The underwater world changes as day creatures retire & nocturnal organisms emerge. If you've wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, enroll in the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.
As the sun sets, don your dive gear, slip on your scuba mask and bite down on your dive regulator. A deep breath and a step off the boat – into the underwater night. Although you may have seen the reef many times before, this time you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light. Introduce yourself to a whole new cast of critters that come out after the sun goes down, and see your favourite dive sites from a whole new perspective at night.
Scuba diving at night teaches you to pay attention to details you may overlook during the day. You'll learn:
- Light handling and communication techniques.
- Entering, exiting and navigating in the dark.
- Identifying how plants and animals differ or change behavior at night.
