NIGHT DIVER Padi Night Diver Course

The PADI Night Diver Course with ACADEMY OF SCUBA

As the sun sets, you put on your dive gear, slip on your scuba mask and bite down on your dive regulator. A deep breath and you step off the jetty or boat – into the underwater night. Although you’ve dove this spot 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.

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.

One Of The Coolest Ways To Dive

If you thought that diving throughout the day was escapism, just wait until you head out at night.  Diving becomes ever more peaceful and the life you see is amazing.  Watch how so many little critters are visable just because you are looking at them in a small area and not your whole field of vision like you would have done during the day.  Learn to night dive comfortably and safely and no doubt this will be one of your favourite forms of diving.  You will want to escape every night after work if you need to de-stress.


What You Learn

  • Night dive planning, organisation, procedures, techniques and potential problems
  • How to control your buoyancy at night
  • Entries, exits and underwater navigation at night
  • Nocturnal aquatic life, since many of the plants and animals you'll see are different
