Fantasy Island Resort on Roatan is now offering a distinctive Fluorescent Night Diver specialty training course.

During the course, divers can experience the underwater realm in a totally new way and see creatures in a new light.

Instead of using traditional dive lights, divers learn how to use UV diving lights. The lights use a blue light with a yellow filter; this brings out colors that can’t be seen by the naked eye. This fluorescence is because many marine animals and corals absorb UV light (blue) and then remit it at a different wavelength generating some striking colors that are otherwise invisible.

The course offered by Fantasy Island is a one-dive course and is open to any diver who holds an open water license. While previous night diving experience is recommended, it is not mandatory to take the course.
