Night Scuba Diving
The idea of diving beneath the surface at night seems mysterious, even seductive. Even if you’ve dived into a site many times before, at night you enter a whole new world and watch it come to life under the bundle of your diving torch.
Why dive at night?
Night diving teaches you to focus on what you can see below. Beam your lighting, control your buoyancy, stay with your buddy and pay attention to details you may overlook during the day. During three night dives, you will practice:
- Management techniques and lamp communications .
- Enter, exit and navigate in the dark .
- Identify how plants and animals differ or change their nighttime behavior.
- 3 dives.
