Full moon diving are the best night dives you will ever made.
Do you love to dive at night? Us too, because the colors are awesome and without the diffracted sun rays, every single coral, gorgonians, and other colored fishes, pop up of their natural and highlighted colors when our torch spots them.
But diving during the full moon, a different effect is happening (no, you will not transform yourself into a werewolf) it's all about the light. The light of the moon is different than the sun as weel as a different nocturnal life is getting out too.
Night dives are awesome, but full moon diving is a haven for the night divers.
If you never dove at night, you can alway learn to dive at night in one of our dive centers, and be a certified night scuba-diver to know at least the different signal to do with your torch or lights, because underwater at night your buddy cannot see your hand's signals, so we use a torch for many different signals.
Anyway, you should try to dive during the full moon, it's a magical and unique experience. The light of the full moon gives a surrounding white-blue luminosity, which gives a phantasmagorical effect underwater to your dive buddies and everything else.
A lot of unique marine life get out only during the full moon, and for most of them, the full moon is the only reproduction time, which makes the full moon diving a unique and memorable experience.
