See a New Side to the Reef

An Unmissable Experience

A Magical Experience that Few Get to See

See what happens when the night shift comes out on the Rincón reefs. This is a unique Puerto Rico scuba diving adventure that not only gives you more sightings of sea life but also is an almost meditative experience. With darkness around you and the flashlight leading your gaze, you can connect with a different side of the underwater world. Expect to see a variety of fishes, eels, crustaceans, and maybe even sharks, many of which are sleeping during the day.

What You’ll See & Do

Join us on our unique night dive for a next-level scuba diving experience in Rincón, Puerto Rico. You’ll head out with your guide just after sunset and see with your own eyes the differences between diurnal and nocturnal diving. Many sea creatures only emerge at night making it the perfect opportunity for sea life lovers to explore the reefs.

See how the animals’ behavior changes as many prepare to hunt. Things that look like rocks on the seafloor will suddenly spring to life. Spot shrimp, octopus, and conch, some fish may even swarm the dive light. You’ll also see eels, crustaceans, and maybe even sharks!

Your professional instructor will be on hand to point out interesting sea creatures and help you with anything you need.

Answers to Your Questions


If you have any questions or concerns about your night dive, call the dive center in advance and we will be happy to help.

Water temperature in Puerto Rico ranges from 78 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter months (December-March) to 84 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer months. Most divers get cold in the winter months and a wetsuit is recommended. At other times of the year, wetsuits are good for abrasion protection. Wetsuits are available for rental for an additional fee, check out our rental rates.

The temperate waters of Puerto Rico are home to many species of fish of all sizes. Some we see every day are parrotfish, butterflyfish, blue tangs, sergeant majors, angelfish, squirrelfish. In fact, look at a fish ID guide for the Caribbean and we see those same characters every day. Ahhh… life in paradise.

The minimum age for scuba certification is 10 years.
