NIGHT diving in the riviera maya, mexico
There is always some extra mystery and adventure to a night dive.
As the sun sets, you don your dive gear, slip on your mask and bite down on your regulator. A deep breath and you step off the boat – into the underwater night. Although you’ve seen this reef many times before, this time you drop into a whole new world and watch it come to life under the glow of your dive light.
Night diving offers a whole news set of challenges and enjoyments – a familiar, off-dived site becomes mysterious and alluring.
