PADI Night Diving

Specialty Course

In the dark a whole new underwater world awaits us!

What does it look like down on the reef at night? Which creatures are active at night and how do fish sleep? Every night dive offers something new and exciting to discover – that’s what makes night diving so unique.

As soon as the sun has set, almost everything changes under the water’s surface. A dive site that you have already dived during the day suddenly looks completely different. Communication with hand signals changes because we can’t see our buddy as well as during the day.

To enroll in PADI Night Diver Specialty course you must be at least 12 years old and be a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or equivalent from other training organization.

Your diving instructor will inform you about all local regulations and procedures for night diving and show you how to communicate with the help of a diving lamp, he will also explain which aquatic creatures await us at the reef and much more – be excited! What makes night dives so exciting? We search under every coral and in every block for interesting creatures and are often rewarded royally here at the house reef: Seahorses, slipper lobster, various nudibranch species and octopuses are only some of the native inhabitants you can encounter.

Another challenge that we learn and master during the night diving specialty course is navigating at night. What sometimes seems very easy during the day should not be underestimated at night. During the three dives of the course, you will learn step by step how to plan and carry out a night dive on your own and together with your buddy and provide for enough air reserve to find your way back out again.
