Kona Diving EcoAdventures is a renowned tour operator in Kauai, which is run by an experienced and passionate team of professionals who will ensure your utmost safety and enjoyment throughout your booked tour. For the Blackwater Dive tour in particular, a unique nighttime adventure is in store for you! Just around two miles off Kona Coast is a great dive spot that goes 5,000 feet down. With each diver suspended from the boat up to 50 feet to drift with the current, Kona Diving EcoAdventures’ Blackwater Dive EcoAdventure is an exhilarating dive exclusive for experienced divers. This tour is reserved for those who have had enough experience and number of dives, and if you qualify, you definitely should not miss out on this delightful opportunity.

Of course, an evening dive lets you get a glimpse of the undersea that you will not be able to experience at any other time of the day. At this time, sea creatures are showing behaviors distinct only during the night, with some of them preparing themselves for nighttime feeding. Catch sight of nocturnal animals emitting light energy, which gets more visible and vibrant as the night gets darker and the ocean gets deeper. This bioluminescence produced among jellyfish, bacteria, and other fish is truly a nature’s wonder, and that which enables these living organisms to properly defend themselves, hunt for prey, and even find mates! Truly, this is a wonderful sight that will leave you amazed and speechless.
