Cape Town has access to two oceans, and as such has a great deal to offer the keen snorkeler or scuba diver. There is a tremendous range of diving to be enjoyed, both in the Atlantic, and the Indian Ocean: from shipwrecks to reef diving, seals to shark diving, shallow to deep or technical diving.
As the sun sets on your favourite scuba dive site, it magically changes into a wondrous new world beaming with different life and things to see. Night diving allows you to see the underwater world in a new light and re-explore a new site in very different conditions.
Just as above water, there are different animals that come out at night, while others go to sleep. Come closer to sleeping fish and see the nocturnal crayfish scavenge the area for food and see a whole new array of animals.
Scuba diving after dark is not everyone’s thing, but for divers who seek a firm dose of adrenaline and those want to do something different, night diving is an unforgettable experience. Where to go for a night dive? Scuba Shack Diving Centre in Cape Town is one of the diving schools that organises night dives in the waters around Cape Town.
A night dive is incredibly exciting and even a bit scary at times as, apart from the beam of light from your torch, it is pitch black around you. That does not mean it is dangerous, in contrary. The underwater world by night is incredibly fascinating: while your eyes adapt themselves to the dark, you will discover more and more about the ocean by night.
