PADI Night Diver Specialty Instructor

Night diving is a fascinating experience for scuba divers with an opportunity to see a whole different marine environment at your favourite dive site.

Coral reefs are vibrant and alive at night, a cacophony of popping, squeaking, crackling and grating noise and looking strikingly colorful under the beam of your torch light when conditions are fair.

Night diving also offers inquisitive scuba divers a natural phenomenon called Bioluminescence.

During the day colorful reef fish and other plant eating marine life are most active, however, when the sun goes down plant eaters sleep and are replaced by nocturnal carnivores.

The Course

Just the way you were fascinated and excited at the prospect of diving at night, so will your students be.

Once student divers have experienced it for the first time during their Advanced Open Watercourse, they will be excited about the prospect of taking the Night diver specialty course.

During the PADI Night Specialty Instructor course you will learn how to teach correct techniques to safely dive and navigate at night whilst avoiding disturbing delicate marine life.

The night dive specialty course philosophy is to focus on seeing in the dark things you miss seeing, or that appear different during daytime dives.

What You Learn

  • Night dive planning, organisation, procedures, techniques and potential problems
  • How to control your buoyancy at night
  • Entries, exits and underwater navigation at night
  • Nocturnal aquatic life, since many of the plants and animals you'll see are different

The Scuba Gear You Use

  • You use all the basic scuba equipment and some scuba accessories such as a dive slate, dive knife, compass, dive watch, etc.
  • It is highly recommended that you own all of your own scuba equipment, as familiarity with personal gear improves general scuba diving skills.

The Learning Materials

PADI eLearning makes it easy to fit scuba lessons into a busy schedule. Learn about scuba diving principles and terminology whenever, wherever it's convenient for you. It's your course on your time. Study offline, or online using a computer or mobile device. Connect with your instructor whenever you have a question.

eLearning time commitment: 3 Hours


To enroll on a PADI Night Diver Instructor specialty course you must:

  • Be at least a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor or currently participating in or have completed an IDC/OWSI Program within the past 12 months.

Medical Requirements

Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.

Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical Form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.

If you (or your physician) have questions about medical fitness to dive, contact the experts at Divers Alert Network (DAN).
