NightDiver Specialty CERTIFICATION


What Will You LEARN?

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 our Night/Limited Visibility Diver Specialty course. 

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 at night.


What Equipment Will You NEED?

Along with your basic scuba equipment, you’ll need a primary dive light and want to have a backup light. In addition you will also need a Glo-Stick. Your The Dive Place Instructor and The Dive Place crew may suggest other equipment options, such as wearing more exposure protection to stay comfortable after dark.


The first dive of this Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Adventure Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.



Enroll in the course and get a Night Diver Crew-Pak that includes your online materials. By studying before class, you’ll be better prepared for the thrill of exploring the underwater world at night.


A Open Water or Advanced Open Water Certification or equivalent is required for this course. For more information, contact The Dive Place, a PADI Dive Center on 407-517-4737, or drop us a email at
