PADI Night Diving Speciality Course

The dive site is familiar to you -having dived here before. But as you ready your kit and watch the sun go down, it begins to take on a new life. After sun set you do your buddy checks and check your torches and enter the underwater world at night! The site is familiar but at night it has a very new perspective, and of course lots of marine life!


You will learn about

This course will teach you the night diving organisation involved, procedures, techniques and how to overcome any problems that may be occur. It will guide you through the best entry and exit methods and how to navigate around your site at night, and also introduce you to the masses of nocturnal marine life that only seems to come out at night!

Scuba diving at night teaches you to focus on what you can see in your light’s beam, on controlling your buoyancy by feel, on staying with your buddy and on 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 behaviour at night.
