PADI Night Diver Instructor Specialty Course
Teach the Night Diver Specialty Course in Thailand
Ever wondered what it is that is so alluring about diving at night? Where does all the marine life go to sleep? What happens underwater after it goes dark? Whatever your reason, diving at night opens up a whole new fascination with the underwater world and is a hugely popular PADI Specialty course.
There are many reasons why divers want to go scuba diving at night. As a PADI Night Diver Specialty Instructor, you can teach student divers how to safely explore the underwater world with a dive light and watch it come to life.
You can safely show your students divers how the scene changes at night, revealing creatures and organisms that are hidden during the day and who burst into life at night.

Your student divers will learn night diving procedures and how to apply them within recreational limits whilst understanding how to interact responsibly with and avoid disturbing sensitive marine life.
