Although the thought of going under water at night might sounds scary to some, it is an incredible experience, primarily due to the fact that it is the only time to see certain nocturnal species which are not active during the day. Yet, night diving has its own peculiarities, so proper training is vital. This course includes three open water dives which need to be done after sunset. Emphasis is placed on proper communication and buddy procedures in the dark, light handling, navigation, and safe entry and exit techniques.
Duration: 1-2 nights
Prerequisites: Open Water certification
Price: ¥ 25000
Where we will dive
Due to the nature of the course, we only offer shore diving during our Night Diver classes. This will give you enough time to master all necessary skills. We usually visit dive sites in Cape Maeda (Blue Cave), Sunabe (Chatan), or Motobu (Gorilla Chop).
The exact diving locations are subject to the weather conditions and your preference.
Getting to the dive sites
We offer free pick-up service from hotels in Onna, Yomitan and Chatan. Pick-ups from other locations are also possible upon request. Please inquire.
† Gear rental is not included in the price. You can rent a full set for ¥ 4000 for the duration of the course and a partial set at a reduced rate.
‡ It is possible to select a different number of boat dives during a course than the ones indicated above. In that case the price will be adjusted accordingly.
§ When combining dives from a course with fun dives on a single day, every fun dive is charged as follows - ¥ 4000 per boat dive and ¥ 3000 per beach dive.
Why stop here?
Check out our Enriched Air (Nitrox) course. Diving on nitrox (a gas mixture containing a higher percentage of oxygen than regular air) does require special training, yet it is a simple and valuable skill that is worth having for divers of all levels.
You can also choose among several other specialty courses. We highly recommend Deep Diving as it teaches you skills that you cannot pick up informally.
If you have more than 100 logged dives under your belt, bring your diving to the next level with the Self-Reliant Specialty we offer. This course is a lot of fun and will open up your eyes to see the challenges and safety aspects of scuba diving from a completely new angle.
