Best Fluorescent Night Diving Destinations

For divers acclimated with the night who think they have seen everything, fluorescent diving ­offers an ­entirely new view on the reef and its dwellers. When lit up with a specific ultraviolet light, ­critters that once looked unremarkable under white light will shine with ­neon-brightness and hallucinogenic splendour.

Cozumel, Mexico

Cozumel’s current-swept reefs is home to rich coral growth. This tropical Mexican island takes pride on its warm waters overflowing with biodiversity, a significant number of which will burst with colour under the bright UV light.

Dahab, Red Sea

The rich waters of the Red Sea are home to a larger number of types of soft, delicate corals than any other waterway on the planet—which made it  a prime area for a fluorescent night dive amid which the entire reef streams.

Koh Tao, Thailand

This popular dive spot embraced fluorescent night diving early, giving divers lots of options for experiencing Thailand’s underwater night glow show.
