Black Water Dive EcoAdventure

The things that go bump in the night shimmer and shine on this extreme night Dive.  Dive with the creatures from the depths of the deep, dark ocean at night and witness the luminescent pelagic creatures that undulate and swim through the black water long after dark.

After the Manta Ray Night Dive and In the pitch dark of night, journey over 2 miles off the Kona coast. In 2,000 feet of water, each diver is suspended from the boat at depths up to 40 feet.  In the stillness of the deep, each diver drifts with the ocean current and the creatures that live there. Come witness for yourself the incredible bioluminescent dance of pelagic sea creatures swimming at night through the pacific ocean.

Like fireflies on land that glow at night, sea creatures such as jellyfish, fish and bacteria create chemical processes to emit light energy known as chemiluminescence. Most marine bioluminescence is seen as blue-green light which become more visible when observed in the deep ocean.

Organisms exhibit bioluminescence for many reasons, including hunting prey, defense against predators, and finding mates.  Some employ counterillumination using their glow of light to blend into light sources from above. Effectively hiding in plain sight from predators hunting from below.
