As the sun sets, you put on your dive gear, slip on your scuba mask and bite down on your dive regulator. A deep breath and you step off the jetty or boat – into the dark abyss.
Although you've been scuba diving at a site many times before, at night you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light. The scene changes as day creatures retire and nocturnal organisms emerge. If you've wondered what happens underwater after the sun goes down, sign up for the PADI Night Diver Specialty course.
To enroll in this course you must be:
- A PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver (or similar from another diving agency)
- At least age 12 or older
Introduce yourself to the whole new cast of critters that comes out after the sun goes down and seeing some of your favorite daytime critters whilst they are fast asleep. See your favorite dive sites from a whole new perspective at night.
During two dives you'll learn:
The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
By completing this course you will also be one step closer to achieving the covenant title of Master Scuba Diver and joining the elite group of divers.
It’s best to use your own scuba equipment, including a weight system, so that you fine-tune your buoyancy in gear you’ll use on every dive. Your Phoenix PADI Instructor can help you find the equipment that is best for you and your diving adventures.
As soon as you sign up (added the course to your cart and payment cleared) with Phoenix Divers to do your PADI Night Diver Specialist Course, you will receive an email with the learning information you need.
You will get access to your PADI Night Diver Manual and Night Diver video.
Your Phoenix Divers PADI Instructor will contact you about scheduling time for practical in-water training.
