Full moon diving and night dives

Full moon diving with Scotty's dive center 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 their natural and highlighted colors when your torch spots them.

But diving during the full moon, a different effect is happening (no, you will not transform into a werewolf) it's all about the light, the light of the moon is different from the sun. The 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 always learn to dive at night in one of our dive centers, and be a certified night scuba-diver to know at least the different signals to do with your torch or lights because under water at night, your buddy cannot see your hand 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 breathtaking 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.

New Moon Scuba Diving

New moon is when you cannot see the moon. There is no light reflected by the moon, thus the sea is pitch black!

Sea snails, shells and other molluscs get out when it's pitch black! So if you would like to do stunning macro photos of rare species or colorful wildlife, diving during the new moon is the way to go.

Night dives during a new moon are also best for blackwater photography. Sea snail and sea shell-specialized photographers prefer to dive during new moon as they got a huge variety of different mollusc species.
