Certified Night Dives
Experience the underwater world of the Pacific Ocean lit by the moon when you book this exciting night dive in Hilo. Your tour includes a quick dive boat ride to the Pacific Ocean's open waters and a delicious snack and refreshing fruit juice you can indulge in while taking in the glowing evening skyline and the sunset. You'll also get to take a dive into the deep blue ocean waters to get a glimpse of the nocturnal marine life as the moonlight illuminates the water for a different view of the Pacific Ocean's marine ecosystem. It's the ideal tour for diving enthusiasts and marine life aficionados alike.
Start your nighttime dive adventure by hopping aboard a dive boat from your meeting location to head out to the Pacific Ocean's open waters and gaze into the horizon as the skyline shifts from the warm tones of the sunset to the white-blue hues of a moonlit evening. Watch the underwater world of the Pacific Ocean come alive as the moon illuminates the waters to reveal the active aquatic life deep beneath. What makes this diving experience one-of-a-kind is the timing and marine life that come out to mate during the full moon. You get about a five to six day-span to experience this phenomenon, as full moon diving is best done two days before or after the full moon.
Dive into the ocean to explore the various sea creatures that call the Pacific Ocean their home, including Hawaiian green sea turtles, spiny lobsters, the glowing Ornate Wrasse and fish from the 45 species of Wrasse found in Hawaiian waters. Watch as live coral, and coral reef marine residents glow in the night as you illuminate them with your torchlight. Before heading back to your pier, you may even get to swim along with stinger-less manta rays, which grow more than 20 feet wide.
From swimming alongside manta rays to taking in the beautiful colors of the depths of the Pacific Ocean illuminated by the moon's white-blue hues, there's much to see and explore on this exciting underwater tour. Book your night dive marine tour today and get ready for an experience of a lifetime!
