SDI NIGHT/LIMITED VISIBILITY DIVER

Many divers find that night diving is their favorite type of diving. As with all specialty diving applications, procedures are different than those associated with open water diving. The purpose of this course is to acquaint the open water diver with the procedures, techniques, and potential hazards associated with diving at night, or in limited visibility. Becoming familiar with the use of dive lights, and night diving techniques such as navigation, buddy system procedures, communications, buoyancy control, and interacting with nocturnal aquatic life, the diver can safely enjoy night diving.  

At Southern Dive Center for only $125 you get your Night/Limited Visibility certification and open up a whole new world of diving adventures.  At Southern Dive Center we will spend one day in the classroom and another day will be spent diving in night/limited visibility conditions.  Come explore the underwater night life today!
