Night Diver

Explore a New Underwater World

With the Night Diver/Night and Limited Visibility Specialty Diver Course

2-3 Days, 2-3 Dives

Why would I want to take this course?

Night dives aren’t for everyone, but if you love them, you REALLY love them! They’re a whole different experience, where you can see plethora of life that’s different than what you’ll see during the day—including lobster, crab, shrimp, eels, octopi, jellyfish, and more.

Night dives provide us with a beautiful glimpse into bioluminescent life. And if there is low light from a new moon or an obscured moon, we can see the “strings of pearls” which are unique to the Bay Islands.

Course Overview

Night dives are an incredible experience. However, we are adding a massive complicating factor to our dive—we can’t see…

For this specialty, you’ll learn how to navigate all kinds of tasks and safety measures including:

  • Reading your instruments
  • Signaling other divers
  • Margin for dive time and “low on air” level
  • Depth limits
  • Torch (light) use and backups
  • Buddy separation
  • Stress underwater
  • Navigation, especially back to the boat
  • Buoyancy to protect you and the reef

The Night Diver specialty requires multiple open water dives (2 for SSI and 3 for PADI).


This course starts at $116.28 before taxes. View pricing details here.
