Night diving can be a fun and new adventure all divers have to at least try. Animals that are hard to find during the day often venture out at night making this the best time to see certain creatures. There is also a fun unique atmosphere to night diving and not to mention many people love to dive after work but have to struggle to get in the water while the sun is still out. Why not just night dive! Along with that the skills learned in night diving are similar to the ones we use in limited visability diving environments much like some of the dives that we experience here in New England. So even if you don't have much interest in night diving these same skills will make you a much more comfortable and confident New England diver as well.
The Night Diving Course teaches standard light signals, light use, limited vis navigation and other useful tricks for night or limited visibility diving. The Night Diving Course requires one class session and 2 open water dives. These can be completed as a shore dive or boat dive depending on the student requirements and weather conditions. Night / limited visibility diving can be considered any diving condition in which limited visibility adds special skills needed to safely dive. Sign up today!
Night Diving consists of a Classroom session and two open water dives. They are typically held on the same evening. Make sure to get a lot of sleep the night before as this class usually runs late!
This course only runs from May - October.

Before your Night Diving Course there is a bit of paperwork you’ll have to fill out. This program requires a minimum of 5 distinct forms. You can find the forms below and complete them ahead of your pool session, most important is the “SCUBA – MEDICAL FORM“. Go through the medical form now and check to see if you need to answer “YES” to any of the questions. If so no big deal – you’ll just need to get a doctors’ sign-off before we can let you in the water. The doctors’ note is in the additional “PHYSICIANS RELEASE” file – along with guidelines for your physician. Remember if you answer “YES” to anything in the medical it is NECESSARY to get a doctors’ note BEFORE getting in the water. It’s also important to note if a physicians signature is require, only medical doctor (MD) signatures are accepted.
For night diving everything is done on the same day, so you just have to find the right day that we're offering it and make sure it works for you! There is a classroom session and 2 open water dives that are typically done from shore the same evening.
Please use the link in the right side column to signup or you can sign up and schedule in-person, over the phone or via email.
The 2 open water dives will happen during the same evening and the location will be weather and situationally dependent. These dives often happen as shore dives though there are some boat dive options. Directions to the, most likely, meeting points can be found on our "DIRECTIONS" page.
Interested in a private? We got you covered! Sign-up today!
Private courses are set up slightly differently than regular deep diving courses. The beginning process is the same – you’ll still be required to fill out the same paperwork but you won’t be tethered to our schedule. Instead, you can find out whenever works best for you and let us know so we can get the sessions scheduled – we can even schedule your pool training outside our normal pool hours*. Make sure to let us know in advance, as we have to rent the pool and make sure it doesn’t conflict with any other activities going on that day. If you do use the pool when we have it rented that’s perfect! There will be other people in the pool but you (or your group) will be working privately with your instructor.
*Additional fees (such as pool rental fees) may apply
Private Scheduling is done through Kim and Max in our training department at Training@ecdivers.com. They will be in contact within 24 hours of any inquiries. If you need to contact us sooner please call us at 617-277-2217.
