The thought of snorkeling can seem like a lot of fun, but taking this kind of adventure at night can make some people nervous. The truth is, it’s actually quite enjoyable. Some things that you see underwater at night are even more amazing than during the day. Putting on a snorkel and swimming underwater at night simply adds to the thrill and excitement of the adventure. There are many reasons why you should try it.
Unique Creatures and Excitement
One of the main reasons to go snorkeling at night is the many opportunities to see things that you can’t during the day. There are different kinds of fish that come out at night and are incredibly rare and beautiful. From eels to octopus and even shrimp, they’re all more active during the night. There are some shrimp with really bright and reflective eyes that you can see in the dark.
Turning Off Your Light for a Surprise
When you go snorkeling at night, it’s important to have a flashlight with you. While it should stay on most of the time, try turning it off for a bit to see some surprises. There may be phosphorescent plankton nearby that emit their own light. You can even try quickly moving your limbs to see many tiny balls of light appear around you.
You might even get the opportunity to swim with even more exotic and huge creatures that are active in the water at night. It’s an incredible opportunity to see all of the wildlife that you’ve been looking for. Plus, there are fewer people out on the water at night, which means that there are fewer disruptions and more chances to see the sea life under the water.
