NIGHT DIVER SPECIALTY
As of January 1, 2017, DIVING FOR FUN will NO LONGER be offering training services. However, we wanted to continue to provide a list of the classes we offered along with course outlines as a reference for all our past customers.

Night Dive - Diver and Sea UrchinCourse Overview: When you go night diving you will see a whole new world. Even your local dive site takes on a new personality at night, as many underwater creatures and plant life (different from those you see during the day) are active at night.

Night Dive - Diver and SlateCourse Activities: You will learn about night dive planning, organization, procedures, techniques and potential problems. You will also learn how to control your buoyancy, navigate and communicate at night. Since many of the plants and animals you see at night are different you will also get introduction for nocturnal aquatic life. You will get to use your new knowledge during the 3 dives you do under the supervision of an instructor.
  • Classroom: There are one classroom session. The classroom session will cover each of the chapters, review your knowledge review answers and prepare you for each of the three open water dives.
  • Independent Study: Read the Night Diver Specialty manual and complete Knowledge Reviews Parts I and II. You will need to turn in the knowledge review prior to certification or provide a copy of an Adventure Log signed by an appropriate instructor if you have already done dive one in connection with your Adventure Diver or Advanced Open Water Diver Certification.
  • Open Water Dives: The 3 open water dives are done at an area lake/scuba park or on a dive trip.
