Night Diving


When you go night diving you will see a whole new world. Even your local dive site takes on a new personality at night, as many underwater creatures and plant life (different from those you see during the day) are active at night.

Your Adventures In Diving Night Adventure Dive may count toward the Night Diver Specialty course at the instructor’s discretion.

Additionally, the Night Diver Specialty course counts as one of five Specialty courses required for your Master Scuba Diver certification.

Course Outline

During three dives, you will learn night dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems.

You will also learn how to control your buoyancy, navigate and communicate at night.

Because many of the plants and animals that you will see are different, you will also get an introduction to nocturnal aquatic life.


The minimum age is 12 years old with PADI Open Water Diver or Junior Open Water Diver certification (or qualifying certification from another organization).
