Night Diver

The PADI Night Diver specialty course is a scuba diving course which teaches you how to plan and safely dive at night.


In order to enroll in the PADI Night Diver course, you need to be at least 15 years old and a certified PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent).

Course Structure

During your Night Diver specialty course, you will learn and practice techniques for safely diving at night. Your instructor will discuss signals, underwater light use, navigation, hazards, accurate ways to measure, points of interest and more, in preparation for your dives. During your open water dives, you will practice assembling your equipment and preparing for the dive, including setting up appropriate surface support lights, and navigating through the dive site, observing the marine life as you swim.

Once you have you completed the Night Diver specialty course, you will receive a temporary Night Diver certification card, which you can start using right away! You will receive your permanent card about 30-45 days after you have been certified.

Required Equipment

You will be required to have your own mask, fins, and snorkel for the duration of the course. You will also require primary and secondary underwater lights. We would also recommend that you have a suitable exposure suit – a wetsuit during the winter months to protect your body from the cold and a lycra, or skin suit for the summer months to protect your body from jellyfish stings and scrapes.
