Night diving in Puerto Vallarta is completely different to diving during the day, primarily because of the lack of sunlight. During a night dive your emotions and senses will feel extremely heightened and the element of surprise is also intensified during the night helping create a truly amazing experience.
Another factor that makes night diving in Vallarta an amazing experience is that the blue filter, apparent in the day, disappears at night. The effect artificial light has on the flora and fauna is dramatic, resulting in an explosion of color. Besides, this light becomes our only navigational instrument, as darkness takes away our sense of orientation. The torchlight slowly moving over the dark abyss is a thrilling image in itself. Another factor is that during a night dive in Puerto Vallarta, the active fauna is different in behavior and habits, just as it is on land.
Due to all this, night diving requires a lot more planning and special attention has to be paid to the weather conditions. It is best to do it in small groups and in places where day dives have been done before. Even so, if you enjoy extreme sports night diving is a trip to another world that we strongly recommend. On your next visit to this beautiful beach destination don't forget to go night diving in Vallarta.
