Night Diving in Isla Mujeres

Night diving is a type of recreational diving which takes place at dusk or in total darkness. The diver can experience a different underwater environment at night because many marine animals are nocturnal. Night dives are special because even a familiar site looks different at night.

When you dive during the day, you normally can scan the entire dive site looking at your surroundings. At night, you see only the area of the dive site that is illuminated by your light. This forces you to slow down and concentrate on that one area.

Night dives in Isla Mujeres are generally done in Manchones Reef. This is a shallow reef full of Sea Turtles, sleeping Parrotfish, Octopus, Squid, Sea Urchins, Basket Sea Stars, and many other nocturnal creatures! Bottom times at this location are long, which makes for great underwater photography sessions. This is a dive you do not want to miss while in Isla Mujeres!

Corals and Creatures start to show ON FLUORESCENCE

Coral Reflect Light

Fluorescence absorbs high-energy light and  re-emits it as low-energy light. In traditional night diving, white light is reflected off of the reef or organism and bounced back to your eyes. Emission light, however, is light that the organism creates and emits back to you. The process is similar to bioluminescence in that the organism creates its own light; however, in bioluminescence the light, which is generated by chemical reaction, requires no excitation light.


Diferent Experience

When Fluorescent Night Diving, special dive lights and lens filters for your mask enhance the stunning colors and unbelievable beauty of the underwater world. All of the critters and corals that you swam past earlier will be worth a second look as they glow in hues of pink, green or blue.

Fluorescence is not only found in corals, but in barnacles, sponges, anemones, jellyfish, clams, nudibranchs, cephalopods, shrimp, crabs and fish too. Bottom times at this location are long, which makes for great night time photography sessions. This is a dive you do not want to miss while in Isla Mujeres!
