Some considerations for becoming a comfortable for night diver include the following:
Coral reefs undergo fascinating transformations when the sunsets. Many of the day (diurnal) creatures that feed on or near reefs disappear, and night (nocturnal) creatures come out to hunt and feed. Some marine animals that appear fearful during the day become calmer at night to allow closer inspection by night divers. And then some reef animals only come out at night. Perhaps the most stunning of reef sights are the corals themselves, because nighttime is feeding time. Many species of corals may appear lifeless during daylight, but at night they spread their tentacles to feed.
With the right equipment, scuba divers can quickly adjust to night diving. The primary goal of a night diver is to remain visible using various underwater lights. Yoke lights are attached to the diver’s regulator and are visible from a distance. Strobe lights are especially visible during night diving. A strobe light may be used to mark a return point on the beach, pier, boat anchor, or exit point. Night divers should also carry two dive lights; one can be used as a backup if the other fails. Modern technology offers many efficient types of dive lights, and it is only a matter of preference.
Some night creatures are sensitive to light and may withdraw if the light is shined directly at them. Divers can maneuver light beams to a point above or beside the creature so not to disturb or frighten it. Underwater lights often attract swarms of tiny marine organisms, or squigglies, the same as above water. Note that dive lights are also very useful during daytime dives when exploring caves or ocean depths.
