PADI Night Diver Specialty Course
When you go night diving you will see a whole new world. Even your favourite dive site takes on a new personality at night, as many underwater creatures (different from those you see during the day) are active at night.
What do I need to start?
PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization)
Minimum age: 12 years old
What will I do?
You will learn about night dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems. You will also learn how to control your buoyancy, navigate and communicate at night. Since many of the plants and animals you will see are different, you will also get an introduction to nocturnal aquatic life.
How long will it take?
Recommended Course Hours: 12
Minimum Open Water Training: three dives over three nights
What will I need?
You will need to supply your own scuba gear including primary and back up torch. Alternatively you can rent any equipment that you do not have.
