Night/Limited Visibility Diver


SKU: 6154 Category: Tag:


Many divers find that night diving is their favorite type of diving. As with all specialty diving applications, procedures are different than those associated with open water diving. The purpose of this course is to acquaint the open water diver with the procedures, techniques, and potential hazards associated with diving at night, or in limited visibility. Becoming familiar with the use of dive lights, and night diving techniques such as navigation, buddy system procedures, communications, buoyancy control, and interacting with nocturnal aquatic life, the diver can safely enjoy night diving.

This course requires at least four dives consisting of buoyancy and trim check and modification, instruction on how to plan and manage a nighttime or limited visibility dive, underwater landmark and sea life identification, daytime and night/limited visibility navigation, limited visibility buddy and lost-buddy procedures, flashlight etiquette, limited visibility signaling, and more.

Cost of course includes: eLearning code; class time with instructional team; open water dives; certification card; one instructor and an assistant or divemaster for each individual or private group enrolled; rental gear as needed.

Course Requirements: diver must own at least one underwater flashlight, although two lights are required for the course; certification requires an over-night stay (not included in cost of course).
