Night Diver

Extend Your Scope to the Magnificent Wonders Out Only at Night

PADI Night Diver

As the sun sets, you put on your dive gear, slip on your scuba mask and bite down on your dive regulator. A deep breath and you step off the jetty or boat – into the underwater night.  Although you may have dove this spot many times before, this time you drop into an entirely new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.
