Night Diver Specialty course

Last Night was the evening that we completed the PADI Night Specialty course with students at Holborough Lakes.

It was a beautiful clear crisp evening with a full moon, ideal for the final night dive of the three dive specialty.

It was lovely and quite so we had the lake almost to ourselves. The visibility was a fantastic 7-8 meters and with similar water temperatures.

Our students and pleasure divers witnessed the apex predator of the lake ‘the pike’ indulging in a rather large perch.  The perch was of such a size that the pike was having some difficulty swallowing it, due to the dorsal fins on the perch.  This did cause some excitement and was a first for a lot of the divers in the group.

Thank you to everyone that came and assisted with the dive last night, your help is always appreciated.

You never know what is going to happen at night and this just goes to show that a frequently dived lake can still behold lots of possibilities and excitement even for well seasoned divers.

If you would like to join us for a dive or continue your own education then please don’t hesitate to contact us at the center.
