Night Diver Course

This program provides the skills and concepts required to safely and comfortably dive at night or in limited visibility conditions. Some of the ocean’s most amazing creatures only come out at night, so your dive doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down. You will learn how to enter and exit the water, use specialized equipment, and how to communicate and dive with a buddy at night or in limited visibility. You will earn the SSI Night Diving and Limited Visibility Specialty certification after completing this program.

Introduce yourself to a whole new cast of critters that comes out after the sun goes down. See your favourite dive sites from a whole new perspective at night. Everything looks different at night, including the ocean! Try the Night Diver speciality course and discover a whole new perspective on the world below.
