Night & Limited Visibility Certification

Your dive adventure doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down, or if your only option for a dive site is a lake or quarry where visibility is limited by the clarity of the water.

Night diving allows you to see things you won’t see during the day. Most marine species hide during the bright daylight hours, only emerging once night has fallen to hunt. Many corals also feed at night, turning the dark waters into a nocturnal garden filled with color. It is an unbelievable feeling to discover the mysteries held underwater when the sun goes down.

With the right equipment and a powerful torch there is a lot to discover. Night diving is a whole new way to experience the underwater world.
