PADI NIGHT DIVER SPECIALTY
The PADI Night Diver Course
Imagine this at the start of a PADI night diver course;
As the sun sets, you don your dive gear, slip on your scuba mask and bite down on your dive regulator. A deep breath and you step off the boat – into the underwater night. Although you’ve seen this reef 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 adventure, thrill and excitement of this specialty can be yours when you complete your this Specialty course.
Go night diving and see the underwater world in a whole new light – a dive light.
The Fun Part
Introduce yourself to the whole new cast of critters that comes out after the sun goes down. See your favorite dive sites from a whole new perspective at night.
It's great to see predators in action during a night dive or to discover the critters that only come out during the night time. The reef has a very different face in the dark and it's exciting to discover this.
Your first night dive will be adrenaline filled, full of anticipation and wondering what that unknown, dark underwater environment will bring you, but once you have your first night dive logged, you will be hooked by the new experience and you will want more!
What You Learn
