Looking for a more advanced dive?  Blackwater diving is a unique night dive which will take you miles offshore where you will hang, suspended from a 60ft tether, over 4000 feet of water to watch open ocean, or pelagic, animals drift by.  You'll have the opportunity to see animals ranging from perfectly clear larval fish and invertebrates to siphonophores, and even cephalopods out in the deep. If you want to observe something you have never seen before, this is the dive for you.  Our divemasters are still surprised by new and exciting creatures every week.   

Dive Requirements

This dive is for the confident diver that has experience (50 dives or more), excellent buoyancy skills, is self reliant, and is ready to venture a little farther offshore.  

Please Note:  We require a minimum of 2 passengers to run this charter.  Max 6 passengers per Coast Guard regulations.

What is Included?


  • Valet Dive Service - Divers are still required to do their pre-dive safety check
  • Experienced guides
  • Tanks, weights, and high powered dive lights
  • FREE Nitrox *must show proof of certification
  • Small dive groups, 6:1 ratio, for safety reasons
  • Hot water shower
  • Snacks & filtered water

What to bring


  • Seasickness or anti-nausea medication is highly recommended for this dive due to the higher than normal motion as well as lack of objects to help coordinate motion. We have some available here in the shop.
  • A full wetsuit with hood will help to protect the body from jellies floating by
  • A BCD with a bladder. This will better allow the diver to achieve the neutral buoyancy necessary to hover effortlessly among the pelagic critters leading to a longer lasting and more enjoyable dive
  • For photographers: A macro lens (50-60mm for crop sensor and 90mm for full frame)
