Do you think you’ve seen all there is to see at your local dive spots? Try checking them out at night. You’re going to find that dive sites don’t really show you everything they have until you explore them when the sun goes down. A plain sandy bottom by day can go from barren to teeming with life after dark.
If you haven’t been diving at night, it’s common to have a little trepidation at the prospect, but once you’ve done it, you’ll be entering a whole new kind of underwater experience. The ocean is like a factory that runs 24/7. When the moon comes up it means it’s time for the second shift to take over.
Taking the PADI Night Diver Course you will don your gear and get into the water at the time when most divers are getting out. You will learn how to safely plan and approach a night dive and, with an instructor to guide you past those first jitters, you’ll complete your first open water night adventures. Don’t be afraid of the dark.
You'll learn night dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems. You'll also learn how to control your buoyancy, navigate and communicate at night. Since many of the plants and animals you'll see are different, you'll also get an introduction to nocturnal aquatic life.
