PADI Night Diver
The PADI Night Diver course is designed to make divers into experienced Night Divers.
Most scuba divers find night diving mysterious, yet alluring. And, even though you may have been on the very same reef earlier that day, at night a dive site takes on a new aura and adventure. Darkness lays a veil that you penetrate with your lights as you explore. Although you may have many great dives here, a night dive is often the one we all talk about afterwards.
The flora and fauna differ at night as underwater life switches to nocturnal behavior, and different animals emerge. You may find an Octopus, crawling amid a reef, change color before your eyes and jet away into the blackness. Whilst some fish ‘sleep’ on the bottom, others are wrapped in protective cocoons. Coral polyps and basket stars open up to feed, and lobsters and crabs crawl about in the open. Or you may simply watch, mesmerized as your torch beams draw thousands of plank tonic organisms to swarm over your lights.
