PADI Night Diver Specialty

Quick Details

Adult Student Divers Ages 15+


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.


Scuba diving at night teaches you to pay attention to details you may overlook during the day. You’ll learn:

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

Before you arrive for the course, you must complete the PADI eLearning. To get started, follow this link.


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


Along with your basic scuba equipment,  you’ll need a primary dive light and want to have a backup light, too. We have a selection of lights available in our dive center or you may bring one with you. Our store offers special deals the day of your dive, so this is the perfect time to get a light.
