Night Diving at Lizard Island

Feb 08, 2014

The waters around Lizard Island are a magnet to divers & snorkellers from all around the world, because they have some of the most pristine reefs on the planet.  Now you can discover something so different and magical, it will blow your mind… Fluoro-Diving & snorkelling!

Imagine drifting through a neon realm with corals and creatures glowing in the dark, like a night scene from the movie Avatar.

Fluorescence is the absorption of one wavelength of light (or colour), and the re-emission of another, totally different wavelength of light (or colour).  Under white light, a fluorescent object reveals its true colour, but under ultra violet light it absorbs the blue and re-emits a fluorescent colour, transforming the blue into a brightly glowing, entirely different colour.

By using specialised Ultra Violet lights, in combination with a unique mask cover you can experience such scenes with your own eyes.  Not only do the corals around you radiate a spectrum of the brightest fluorescent colours but so too does the aquatic life. Moray eels, crabs and tiny shrimps display flashes of bright fluorescent yellow red and green, and fish display patterns of light.

Experience UV Night Diving with us and night diving will never be the same!

$150 per person

Minimum of four divers per dive.
