Fall Sunset and Night Diving

The fall is an excellent time to dive. Often the visibility is better and the fish experiences more and bigger. Another plus is there is more parking, less boats and less people out on the water.

With all of this in the plus column there is also a few minus column items as well...

  • Cooler Evenings and mornings.
  • Cooler water temperatures.
  • Fading sunlight and shorter daylight hours.

Below are tips for divers (and items now in affect for our own club divers), that will help you make the most out of your Fall Scuba Diving Trips.

  • Wear full cold water suits
  • Bring warm clothes to put on after the dive and a blanket or warm up jacket.
  • If you are a Non-night certified diver, you should be out of the water 30 minutes prior to sunset


Question: How do I store my gear for the winter?

Answer: Firstly why store it, USE IT! If there are items that you wish to store item be sure to wash or clean them thor-oughly. Then be certain to let them dry outside and inside. Make sure that they are folded or rolled correctly as the item requires. For example roll neoprene and fold a BCD. Store in either a sealed container or bag.


For those wishing to become night scuba divers or advanced scuba divers, contact Bill. We will offer this course throughout the fall.
