Tips to Enjoy Night Diving in Fujairah

Night diving is a whole new experience worth adding to your bucket list. Even if you have explored a particular dive site during the day, it becomes a different world at night. The mystery unfolds as your surroundings come to life under the glow of your dive torch.

Fujairah is an amazing place to go night diving. Our scuba diving Fujairah trip starts at 6:30 PM with a boat ride. Watch the captivating sunset as we head to the dive site. Twilight is the perfect time to make your descent because you can witness the daytime marine creatures retire for the night and the nocturnal animals wake up from their sleep.

Night diving tips

  • It is advisable to go night diving at a known site. If you have explored the same site during the daytime, it will be easier for you to navigate at night. It also gives you the opportunity to compare the marine life scenes during daytime and at night.
  • Check your scuba gear and equipment, especially your primary and backup dive light prior to the trip. Make sure that both torchlights are functioning properly.
  • Timing your descent just before sunset gives you enough light to put on your gear with ease. When you begin your Fujairah night dive at dusk, you will be able to see the changes in your marine surroundings including the transition between daytime and nocturnal creatures.
  • Please be careful where you aim your dive torch. It is recommended to keep your dive light face down towards the bottom to avoid pointing it at other divers’ eyes.
  • To ensure that you enjoy your night dive experience, our dive instructors will guide you every step of the way. We’ll take our time descending so you could observe the marine animals in their natural habitat. Discover marine creatures that you don’t get to see during the day. Witness them go about their daily activities including feeding, hunting, and perhaps even get a chance to see mating rituals.

Creatures of the night

Some marine creatures are more active at night because it’s the time when they feed or hunt. The moray eel spends most of the day resting and comes out of its hiding place in the cover of darkness to hunt. The creature has poor eyesight but it uses its keen sense of smell to locate its prey. It uses its powerful jaws to grasp its prey and forces it down its throat. The green sea turtle may also be spotted gliding in the waters of Fujairah at night. You may also come across shrimps, lobsters, cuttlefish, squid, and octopus during your night dive. Manta rays also love gliding through the waters in the evening.
