The Thrill of Nighttime Photography with Blackwater Cozumel diving!
Cozumel is a beautiful dive destination known for its crystal-clear visibility and breathtaking marine life. If you’re an avid diver, you may have already explored the reefs and underwater landscapes during the day. But have you ever considered diving and discovering the enchanting underwater world with Blackwater Cozumel? I did it recently, just once, but I will be doing it again! It was amazing. I know a few of the animals I saw, but not all! I’m looking forward to researching.
Blackwater is a unique way to observe marine life that is not visible during the day or on the reefs. Blackwater Cozumel focuses on going 3 or more kilometers out into deep water, allowing you to experience the bioluminescent creatures that rise from the deep. You don’t have to dive deep to see them; you can photograph them at 15 feet! During these dives, you can see a variety of larvae life that come out only at night by using light to entice them to the surface. Most of the time, these are tiny creatures like larval fish, jellies, and hydromedusa. Aren’t they incredible???
Blackwater Cozumel Diving
One of the most thrilling aspects of Blackwater is photography. Blackwater Cozumel and Robert Stanfield offer a specialized photography experience that allows you to capture mesmerizing photos of the bioluminescent creatures you encounter during your dive. The underwater world at night off the reefs is an entirely different experience, and the images you capture will be stunning.
Who can do it?
Advanced divers or divers with previous night diving experience. Good buoyancy is a must. No heart conditions.
- Full dive kit – Rental Available
- Dive light – Rental Available
- Full-length wetsuit / stinger suit
We also recommended the following:
- Hooded top
- Camera with lights/strobes
- Narrow beam torch for spotting
- Video / Focus light
- 2 or more strobes
When do we do it?
Weather is the limiting factor with open ocean dives. We use a large boat that can comfortably operate in waves up to 2m in height. For an enjoyable dive, we aim for 1.8m or less with the most up-to-date weather forecast. So if you plan on a blackwater dive during your stay in Cozumel, please be extremely flexible with dates for the dive.
So, you’re looking for an adventure that will take you beyond the usual daytime diving experience? In that case, blackwater diving is a great option. The surreal beauty of the bioluminescent creatures and the thrill of blackwater photography makes for an unforgettable experience. So, dive into the enchanting underwater world of Cozumel!
How Would you like to hear about some Excitement in Customs at San Jose del Cabo airport? I have a cautionary tale!
I recently went to Los Cabos on a girl’s trip with my daughter and two cousins. We had a great time, but first, I had a little problem at the airport. We flew into SJD, Los Cabos International Airport. If you’ve ever been to Mexico you know about customs and the green or red light you get which tells you whether or not your bags get checked by customs. I had the green light on both my bags, but a customs guy said he wanted to check my carry-on bag.[Read more…] about Would you like to hear about some Excitement in Customs at San Jose del Cabo airport?
