Blackwater diving is a night dive in open ocean, away from a reef, over deep water. We aim for 3 kilometers away from the shore where the sea floor is over 300 meters / 1000 feet away. Combined, this provides us with no visual reference.
Why do we do Blackwater Diving?
The largest migration of animal biomass happens every single night as animals migrate from the mesopelagic zone unto the surface. In simple terms, plankton (pelagic life forms of fish, corals, and other invertebrates before they settle to the reef) migrate from the dark depths of the ocean each night to feed near the surface. This offers us the ability to see otherworldly lifeforms that are otherwise far beyond the reaches of scuba diving.
The animal varies in size from tiny up to super massive. Board the boat with the renowned diver and photographer Rob Stansfield.
