Learn To Dive

Night Diver

DWF Night Dive

Who should take this course?

The thought of dipping below the surface at night seems mysterious, yet so alluring. 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.

PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 12 years old, can enroll in the Night Diver specialty course.

What will you learn?

Scuba diving at night teaches you to focus on what you can see in your light’s beam, on controlling your buoyancy by feel, on staying with your buddy and on paying attention to details you may overlook during the day. During three night dives, you’ll practice:

  • Light handling and communication techniques.
  • Entering, exiting and navigating in the dark.
  • Identifying how plants and animals differ or change behavior at night.

You may be able to get college credit for the Night Diver course – ask DWF.
Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask DWF about earning credit.

How can you start learning now?

Contact Dive With Frank directly and let me know that you’d like to sign up for the Night Diver course!  We can get you the PADI Night Diver Crew-Pak that includes your manual and video. By studying before class, you’ll be better prepared for the thrill of exploring the underwater world at night.

What scuba gear will you use?

Along with your basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a primary dive light and want to have a backup light, too. DWF may suggest other equipment options, such as wearing more exposure protection to stay comfortable after dark.

How Long Will It Take?

We spend one session in the classroom one evening and an additional 3 Open Water Night Dives over an additional day (or rather night).
