Night Diver Specialty

As the sun sets, you don your dive gear, slip on your scuba mask and bite down on your dive regulator. A deep breath and you step off the boat – into the underwater night. Although you’ve seen this reef 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.

Night diving is a beautiful experience not only because of the different creatures you’ll see underwater after the sun sets, but also because of the gorgeous light show cast by divers’ lights underwater. You’d be surprised how bright it can be after dark.
