"You'll need light to dive at night and there are some extra pre-cautions, read everything you need to know in here"
Price: Varies on location, our standard night dives cost 1,500 Baht but the best way to find out the prices is simply to get in contact with us, that way we can tailor the experience to what you want to do and see.
Lights & torches: Are provided, one for every diver. You can totally bring your own if you have a waterproof one rated to a minimum of 20 metres. We also sell very very very bright night torches if you are not happy with the shop equipment.
Glow sticks: Please do not bring them. Firstly if they break, they poison the reef, they are easy to lose or drop. They are not reliable light sources and they have no off switch which means you will ruin the dive for people interested in the bioluminescence.
Photo & Video: We usually try to film parts of the night dives and the cool critters we find, you can talk to us after the dives about getting your videos & photos. You can also film and take photos with your own equipment, but please be mindful of your diving group and no strobing delicate marine life like Seahorses.
Stay close: Night diving is dark and can be a little dis-orientating, but your instructor knows exactly where he or she is going, so stay close to them because not only will that keep you safe and happy on your dive, but the instructors will be the ones finding awesome critters.
Marine life: An unknown fact of coral reefs is that over half the animals and critters that live on them are nocturnal, like Octupus and Nudibranch, so the best time to catch these amazing creatures is at night. Check out the photo gallery or our night diving videos.
Dangers: There are very few actually, getting lost is the big one so stay close to your instructor while diving. Scorpion fish hide on rocks and are harder to spot at night, so don't touch the reef, look but don't disturb. We have never seen a shark on any of our night dives in Phuket, they simply don't like the shallow reefs we dive.

"Me and the missus dove with NDP a few weeks ago off Karon Beach, was surprised at the reef quality for a beach dive. Miles of corals and the Instructors know the reef backwards! Scatter was medium."

"Wasn't expecting much, got more than I bargained for, have not seen bio like that since I left Maldives. Watch out for Jellyfish :D"
- Rit Haptesh
"The guys that run NDP are actually really good at what they do, if you think you won't find/see anything on the reef at night, you are completely wrong. Awesome dive, thanks guys!"
"Really enjoyed my night dive with Night Diving Phuket off Kata beach, saw heaps of Cuttlefish & the boulders were kinda spooky, going to do the Karon beach dive shortly."
