PADI Night Diver

The PADI Night Diver Course with Academy of Scuba

More Fun Happens At Night

Experience some of the ocean’s most amazing creatures engaging in their nocturnal activities and watch dive sites transform under the glow of your torch light. Night diving is an amazing way to observe marine creatures and critters engaging in their nocturnal behaviours and is always full of surprises. A dive site you have dived over and over again in the day time will become totally different at night.
