Introduce yourself to the whole new cast of critters that come out after the sun goes down. Take the Night Diver Specialty and see your favorite dive sites from a whole new perspective at night.
Why take the PADI Night Specialty course?
Satisfy your natural curiosity of the night time aquatic environment, observe nocturnal aquatic animals seldom seen during the day, closely approach many fish & other shy animals that are unapproachable by day, extend your diving opportunities throughout any of the 24hrs per day & see the “true” colours of an underwater environment using your dive light at close range.
What’s involved in the course?
We will cover night dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems and help you with tips on how to control your buoyancy at night. Entries, exits and underwater navigation all need a bit more care at night and we will show you techniques to make this easier. We also cover nocturnal aquatic life, since many of the plants and animals you’ll see look different. After your Knowledge Development lesson, depending on your situation there are 2 or 3 Night Dives to complete your certification.
Who can take the course?
Any diver who is qualified as an Open Water Diver and at least 12yr’s old.
When does the course run?
All our specialties run regularly year round. Our training staff can work out an individual schedule for the specialty courses that interest you.
Where does the course run?
This course is usually run at local dive sites around Porirua and Wellington including our local Marine Reserve. Fish life is abundant in the Reserve and it takes on a whole different character at night. Your evenings start from our Dive Center.
