When diving at night, most divers describe a feeling of serenity, some form of relaxation, yet at the same time they would use words like “exciting” or “thrilling”. The marine life that comes out during a night dive is generally quite different to what we are used to seeing on a day dive. Some species are a lot more active, some try to hide, some that seem to appear out of nowhere. It is a fantastic change, even on a familiar site. While taking the Night diver specialty, you will learn about all this, and how to communicate efficiently in the dark, what types of torches are recommended and how to maintain them properly.
