WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO DIVE AT NIGHT? For some divers, it’s a strange or even intimidating idea. You don’t know what you’re missing, as night diving has certainly garnered some fascinating aspects you probably never knew way back when it was a mere necessity for an Advanced certification.
Years later, perhaps it’s time to give it a second chance, as you are probably a different diver now than you were 10 years ago. So what’s the best advice you’ll ever get when it comes to night diving? Go with a local dive guide. They are the ones that truly know the sites.
At a popular muck dive destination like Lembeh, the local dive guides know not only where to see the critters that you wouldn’t normally see during the day, but also their behaviours come nightfall.
The guides here will evaluate the dive site and carefully plan your time and depth limits, entry and exit points, and other considerations. All you need to think about is that award-winning photo you want to capture.

Stay close to your guide during the dive – right behind him or not too far from his side – because when he spots a rare critter that might not hang around for long, you don’t want him to have to frantically signal for you to come over.
