PADI Specialty of the Month October 2010; Night Diving

PADI Specialty of the Month October 2010; Night Diving

As the sun sets, you don your dive gear, slip on your mask and bite down on your regulator. A deep breath and you step off the boat – into the underwater night. Although you’ve seen this reef many times before, this time you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.
Go night diving and see the underwater world in a whole new light – a dive light.

Most of my night dives have been conducted at Chaweng Beach, which is a great place for seeing some amazing stuff, how about; the most amount of crabs you may see during a dive including a decorator crab, a shell-less crab that just sticks stuff on itself in order to camouflage itself, this one even had cigarette butts on it's body, or how about a crab dining on a just about, barely a life scorpion fish, the crab was dining on it's gills, or how about puffer and boxer fish, blue spotted sting rays and plenty of more stuff.

I've done plenty of night dives in other locations, including Sail Rock, Similans, Pattaya, Phi Phi, Dahab in the Red Sea and the Netherlands just to name a few and they all have been interesting and/or exciting.

Take up the challenge that is night diving and after your first experience you most likely keep craving for more!

This month of October 2010 has a 10% discount if you book the night Dive Specialty!
