Marathon Sunset/Night Dive Trip
First, at Capt. Hooks, we do it a little different. We dive the reef during late afternoon/early evening in the daylight. Then, we come aboard after the first dive to witness some of the most breathtaking sunsets that the Keys are noted for. Then, we dive the same location in the dark, at night, and watch the transformation of the reef right before our eyes. It is a fantastic way to take in the splendor of the Keys. Again, we provide a divemaster in the water with you to point out the changes and the highlights of the reef, if you choose to follow. Following the divemaster is only by choice, and many choose to explore on their own with their buddy. Regardless, it is a unique and fulfilling way to spend an evening in the Keys.
INCLUDED WITH DIVE
Tanks, Air, Weights and Weight Belt are included. Do you need any other rental gear? If so, you will have the opportunity to order additional gear once you confirm the dates that you are diving.
At Capt. Hooks, we provide a complimentary divemaster with each dive trip. They know the reef and the local marine residents, and they can point out the highlights on our dives. Having a divemaster in the water has helped many of our divers that have not been diving in a while to reach a higher comfort level knowing there is someone nearby who can help. The divemaster is only there if you want to use them as a guide, it is your choice, and many of our divers explore on their own with their dive buddy.
The Night Dive requires three divers for the trip to be a go. Once we receive a request for this dive, by one or two divers, we go to work to fill the dive to the minimum requirement of three divers or more. Most often, we are successful in meeting the minimum requirement, but it is always a good idea to book the Night Dive in advance.
