Experience what happens when the sun goes down

At night, you can find Parrot fish asleep with a mucous membrane surrounding their bodies to confuse their predators. Shine your flashlight into coral crevices and find brittle starfish, red hermit crabs, and shrimp’s eyes reflecting back at you. If you’re lucky, you’ll see an octopus change colors to reflect its mood before your eyes. Shine your light into an anemone or a hermit crab and watch them feed on the worms that your light attracts.


Night dives are schedule everyday- leaves at 6:00 pm (Except Sundays) with a minimum of 2 divers to confirm. Depending on weather condition or upon requests night dives are also done outside the reef.
