The sun is setting earlier now. This means that doing a night dive may not entail a late night of rinsing and putting gear away. Divers who have early morning jobs, may still be able to dive during the week and make it to work on time.
The PADI Night Diving Specialty Course is designed to teach the fundamentals of organizing and planning a night dive.
Many of us have been diving in the same area for years. As the seasons change, the area may look slightly different but we still know what to expect. A night dive completely changes a divers view of the site and adds some extra challenges. Navigation is a bit harder without daylight. The natural navigation references that we may use on regular dives are no longer visible. Even keeping track of depth changes and cylinder pressure becomes more challenging while using a dive light.
Why dive at night? Is it exciting? You bet!
The variety of marine life that comes out at night is amazing. It is not uncommon to see lobsters out of their holes and squid hunting together. On several night dives in Stonington Borough, we have seen skates, sea robins and northern puffers. Many divers say that they prefer night dives because they would never see the same things during a daylight dive.
