If you want diving with a twist, or if you are looking for serious fun and adventure then our PADI Night Diver Specialty is for you.
Diving in the dark is nothing like diving during daylight hours and adds a certain spice and excitement. Your favourite dive site can seem like another world when you explore it in the dark.
This course covers the safety aspects to night diving, the considerations for maintaining buddy contact, regulating good buoyancy control and also communication underwater. Students explore the dark side and the creatures that wake up during the twilight hours.
