Nubble Light - Night Dive

Come and join us for a night dive at Nubble Lighthouse located on Cape Neddick in York, Maine.

Nubble Light is a very picturesque location that offers easy access to some fine diving.
Established in 1879, Nubble Light is off limits to visitors, but you can still get a good view of it from the park.

We will have a full moon on September 19, and will be able to observe a unique fluorescent effect in the water. 

There will be a low tide that night, so most likely no giant stride entry, but we will be able to walk in and set all of our gear on a giant boulder.
We will make one dive before dusk to be able to get a good feeling for the site. Then, switch tanks and go for a second dive.

Night dives at the Nubble are very popular throughout the year, and there is plenty to see. Recently we had reports of Sea Raven, Giant Lobsters, Flounders, and Skates to name a few.

You need to hold Night Certification and have one main and at least one backup light as well as a strobe light or a glow stick to be able to join.

If you do not have the certification or all necessary gear, please call the shop, and we will be able to help you.

We will meet at New Hampshire Visitor Center on Rt.95N (between MA ext.60 and NH ext.1) at 4:00pm or at Sohier Park in York, ME at 5pm.  (Rt.95 is a toll road in NH in both directions, so please bring cash with you or your EZ pass).

Here are directions from Boston to Nubble Light if you travel there by yourself.

    I have dove at night on several occasions. What does it take to be night certified? I have all the gear needed.
