Liam on the night dive

Sunset on a Long Beach night dive

I took these two short video clips on a night dive at Long Beach on 20 July.


In the first clip, it’s still quite light. Dinho is breathing off his octo because it free flowed at the beginning of the dive.


The second clip, which was taken just a minute or two later, is much darker – the sun was setting at that very moment. At the end you can see Tony in his Batman hoodie. You can also glimpse Craig over the kelp on the wreck, with the buoy line, and Tamsyn in a wetsuit with blue detailing on the arms. We were eight all together for this dive, and the light shed by our torches and cyalumes is quite considerable.

For another glimpse of what night diving is like, you can check out another video here.
