Night Diver Course
Why limit your diving to daylight hours when you can experience the wonder of what happens under water once the sun goes down? You can see:
- Sleeping fish.
- Coral feeding.
- A rainbow of colors that look entirely different from what you are used to seeing during daylight hours.
Diving at night, however, entails more than just grabbing a light and going. Special planning, preparation, equipment and communication skills are needed — among others. Fortunately, the Night Diver course can provide you with these skills in a very short period of time.
Who Can Enroll? This course is open to divers who are:
- At least 12 years old.
- PADI Certified Junior Open Water Divers, Open Water Divers or equivalent.
- Able to either answer No to all questions on the standard Medical History form or secure a physician’s approval prior to the start of class.
What is involved? This course consists of:
- Self study with PADI Night Diver Manual or eLearning and completion of knowledge reviews.
- Classroom sessions are most often in the form of going over knowledge reviews & thorough briefings at the dive site or at the dive store just prior to your trip and a tour of the Dive Boat and its safety equipment.
- There are 3 open water training dives required for certification.
