SSI Night Diver Specialty Koh Tao

SSI Night Diving Specialty Course Koh Tao

What is the Night Diver Specialty Course?

Some of the ocean's most incredible creatures come out at night, so there's no reason your diving day needs to stop with the setting of the sun. 

Night diving can be tricky - Navigation is obviously more difficult, but what happens if you have a torch failure? How do you communicate effectively when 1 hand if occupied with your torch? What happens in the situation that you lose your dive? 

The Night Diving and Limited Visibility Specialty Diving Course on Koh Tao teaches you everything needed to take full advantage of the incredible opportunities that night diving provides.

Over the period of 2 dives you will learn the correct techniques we employ when night diving to make them as enjoyable as possible. 

We are very fortunate in that many of the night diving sites around Koh Tao offer an abundance of marine life, so while learning the correct techniques we will get to see a lot of hunting Barracuda and Groupers, as well as phosphorescence and many nocturnal species.

The Night Dive & Limited Visibility Specialty Course is available for anyone that has a diving license, is 10 years or older, and medically fit
