Night Diving

Night Diving is a thrill for veteran divers as well as new comers to the sport, however, night diving is a specialty form of diving so you must have proper training and carry the appropriate equipment.

One of the important considerations in night diving is being very comfortable with your buoyancy and equipment. Divers tend to get in too close to the reefs at night due to the restricted light conditions and the thrill of the experience.

When you go night diving you'll see a whole new world. At night, the colours and fascinating sea life are more enhanced than in the crystal blue waters of the day. The colours are more accurate at night because sunlight dramatically alters how we see them. Even your local dive site will take on a new persona at night, as many underwater creatures and plant life are active at night. Many corals feed at night and they will have their polyps out making their appearance noticeably different than during the day. The reef and fish colours are much more vivid at night.

Given the abundance of nocturnal marine organisms, it is not necessary to venture to the more exotic deeper dive sites. There is a concentration of things to see nearly everywhere making night diving less strenuous since it usually involves covering much less reef area. Many veteran divers prefer underwater night photography and videography, so don't hesitate to take along a camera.

The Red Sea offers an array of nocturnally active critters that you can spot after the sun goes down including hunting lionfish, Spanish dancers, delicate feather stars, octopus, and a variety of lobster and squid.
