Night and Limited Visibility

This program provides the skills and concepts required to safely and comfortably dive at night or in limited visibility conditions. Some of the ocean’s most amazing creatures only come out at night, so your dive doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down. You will learn how to enter and exit the water, use specialized equipment, and how to communicate and dive with a buddy at night or in limited visibility. You will earn the SSI Night Diving and Limited Visibility Specialty certification after completing this program.

Certification Prerequisites: Open Water Diver

Naturally, each night dive in tropical waters is a little adventure. You only see what the light of your own lamp and that of your buddy illuminates.

The basic prerequisite for your NIGHT / LIMITED VISIBLITY adventure is good coordination and good general diving skills, which will also be improved during the two required dives. If you master these skills, properly plan your night dive, and bring the right equipment, you will be rewarded with special dives.

You can also only buy the manual and/or the DVD and not take the entire course, if you only want to inform yourself about the topic night diving.

Content of the course:

Diving at night or with limited visibility

Special equipment for your night dive

The preparation of your night dive

Your night dive

Your advanced techniques for limited visibility

Fun and acquiring new skills are always at the forefront of SSI specialties. Practical experience is the number one priority. Theoretical lessons are kept short, given that you have prepared yourself with the help of the HOMESTUDY KIT. This way, you can already fully enjoy your time underwater and with some practice make great discoveries at night.
