The underwater world changes as day creatures retire & nocturnal organisms emerge.
PADI Night Diver
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 come 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.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 12 years old, can enroll in the Night Diver specialty course.
What will you Learn
Scuba diving at night teaches you to focus on what you can see in your light’s beam. Controlling your buoyancy by feel, staying with your buddy and 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.
Along with your basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a primary dive light and want to have a backup light, too. Remember that National Scuba can provide all scuba gear you will need to complete this speciality.
