Diving after the sun has set offers some of most fascinating dive experiences. Even the dive sites you've dived many times before turn into a whole new world. Critters you didn't even know existed down there crawl out of somewhere. When scuba diving at night, you'll see familiar dives sites from a whole new perspective and, well, in different light...

PADI Night Diver Specialty Course teaches you to focus on what you can see in your light’s beam, controlling your buoyancy by feel, staying with your buddy and paying attention to details you may have overlooked during the day.


Many divers find - to their surprise - that they are more relaxed diving at night and that they consume less air. Concentrating on the area that your light illuminates reduces unnecessary movement and keeping track of your dive buddy is often easier as you can see your buddy's light.


During the Night Diver Specialty course you will be using navigation techniques at night so the Night Diver specialty goes well with the Underwater Navigator specialty.
