NIGHT DIVE

Unlike any other experience you’ve ever had.

At night, daytime creatures rest and nighttime creatures come out. During your night dive, find Parrot fish asleep with a mucous membrane surrounding their bodies to confuse their predators. Shine your flashlight into coral crevices and find brittle starfish, red hermit crabs, and shrimp’s eyes reflecting back at you. If you’re lucky, you’ll see an octopus change colors – to reflect its mood – before your eyes. Shine your light into an anemone or a hermit crab and watch them feed on the worms that your light attracts.

You’ll feel like an explorer on the moon, seeing your buddies’s light beams shining around you. You’ll spend a few minutes of the dive on your knees in the sand, circled with your group, to turn your lights off. When you wave your arms, bioluminescence – microscopic organisms – will light up like fairy dust.

Our most common night dive site is the Caye Caulker Marine Reserve.
