Night Diving in Curaçao
What is Fluorescent Night Diving?
Fluorescent night diving is also referred to as fluo diving or glow diving. Fluorescence absorbs high-energy light and re-emits it as low-energy light. This is different from phosphorescence which has the capability to store light and re-emit it over a longer period of time.
When fluorescent night diving, UV flashlights and lens filters for your mask enhance the stunning colors and unbelievable beauty of the underwater world. All of the critters and corals that you swam past earlier will be worth a second look as they glow in hues of pink, green or blue.
Fluorescent Night Diving – it is a Psychedelic Experience!
So if you are you looking for a totally psychedelic and mind blowing experience, then you really need to try a Fluorescent night dive in Curaçao!
Diving with these special “blue” UV dive lights and a yellow mask filter, the corals, some marine creatures and the fish “glow in the dark”, making for a totally different experience than what you were used to on a traditional night dive!

Invest in a Night Dive Certification Course – it is worth it!
“Fluorescent night diving requires divers to be comfortable with night diving and the particular skills that are needed for such dives. While the glow illuminates the surrounding area and divers have flashlights, there are still many safety concerns that divers need to be prepared for before taking the plunge.”
The colors that you see are completely different from what is normally seen in “white” light, so a normally boring fish may suddenly dazzle you with its glowing pattern. Dive in and talk to Ocean Encounters Diving Curaçao, a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort about joining one of these incredible dives and the PADI Night Diver specialty certification.
See the glow for yourself! Dive in and discover Curaçao in a whole new light – because a fluorescent night dive is an essential experience that you really do need to feel for yourself!
