NIGHT DIVER Experience a whole new world at night

The PADI Night Diver Course

Just because the sun is setting (or has not risen yet) does not mean you can't explore underwater! A deep breath and you step off the jetty or boat – into the underwater night. Although you’ve dived this spot many times before, this time you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.

The Fun Part

Introduce yourself to the whole new cast of critters that comes out after the sun goes down. See your favorite dive sites from a whole new perspective at night.

What You Learn

  • Night dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems
  • How to control your buoyancy at night
  • Entries, exits and underwater navigation at night
  • Nocturnal aquatic life, since many of the animals you'll see are different

You put this information into practice during three open water dives.


  • PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver (or hold a qualifying certification from another training organization)
  • 12 years or older

The Scuba Gear You Use

You use all your basic scuba gear including dive lights! Owning your own dive lights ensures the best experience since rental lights never work the entire dive!
