Content of course
The PADI Night Diver specialty course is divided in two parts.
1. PADI e-learning theory
You prepare yourself with the PADI e-learning software at home on your tablet, notebook or PC. We strongly recommend not to study on a small screen of a smartphone. The interactive e-learning will let you read the texts and watch the video and will check your understanding with some knowledge reviews.
The best experience is to study online, however, if you find yourself without internet such as on the beach or while traveling or if you have inconsistent, poor internet services, you may download content to study offline via the PADI Training app. Content can be downloaded in sections for download convenience with a total file size of approximately 189 MB.
The PADI Training app is available for Apple® iOS devices and Android™ devices. It’s best if devices are no more than three generations old.
PADI Night Diver eLearning provides the basic knowledge for light handling and communication techniques, entering, exiting and navigating in the dark, along with the night diving safety concepts and procedures you’ll apply during the three required dives.
The e-learning software comes in these languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish
2. Practical open water training
The specialty course PADI Night Diver contains 3 dives in the open sea. One dive of preparation getting to know the dive site followed by 2 night dives. As we organise night dives only once per week and only for at least 4 divers participating, we can't guarantee this course to be available in low season.
You will learn more about planning, organisation, problems and dangers of night diving. You will be tought preperation and use of torches, additional equipment, emergency procedures and night active subaquatic life.
At the end of this course you should be able to conduct safely night dives together with a buddy on your own and without professional supervision.
Every diver must carry a torch when night diving. If you do not have a torch you need to rent one of our Sea*Pro LD4-Light torches.
Sea*Pro torches you can also find in our ScubaShop.
