Duration 1 Day
The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems mysterious, yet so alluring. Although you’ve been scuba diving at a site many times before, at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light. The scene changes as day creatures retire and nocturnal organisms emerge. If you’ve wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 14 years old, can enroll in the Night Diver speciality course.
What will you learn?
Scuba diving at night teaches you to focus on what you can see in your light’s beam, on controlling your buoyancy by feel, on staying with your buddy and on paying attention to details you may overlook during the day. During three night dives, you’ll practice:
- Light handling and communication techniques.
- Entering, exiting and navigating in the dark.
- Identifying how plants and animals differ or change behaviour at night.
While some are at home watching TV, those who dare are out exploring the oceans and rivers to find the night time critters. Night diving is a fun way to find marine creatures you only see at night. Learn how to navigate without visual references and learn lost buddy procedures in the dark. On this course you will be shown the importance of a good thorough dive briefing of dive sites, night time signals and a chance to get comfortable diving at night with one of Perth Scuba’s Instructors.
