SDI Night / Limited Visibility


Many divers find that night diving is their favourite 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.


Who this course is for:

  • Individuals that wish to explore the underwater world at night, along with the nocturnal wildlife

Course Duration:

Courses should not be treated as a race or something that can be skipped through quickly. Please remember training does not guarantee certification, we need to ensure you fully understand the training and will be a safe diver on certification. We follow a loved one clause that when certified we would be happy you could safely dive with one of our loved ones.

  • The e-learning and academic portion of this course should be completed before starting in water training and exercises. The duration of this piece is dependant on your availability. During this time our instructors are on hand to assist with questions or any element you may struggle with.
  • For many courses the swimming pool or confined water sessions give us time to practice and carry out skills in a controlled environment. We do not fix specific number of pool sessions as it is dependant on your comfort level with skills before moving to open water.
  • The open water element is again determined more by time in water rather than number of dives. We prefer longer dives building experience rather than quick short 20 minute 'dips'.
We will strive to meet your timelines and requirements where possible and will always be dependant on student availability to attend sessions.

  • SDI Open Water Scuba Diver, SDI Junior Open Water Scuba Diver, or equivalent
