Night diving last year (Aug 2014) in Spain, Costa Brava, local site dropped off boat onto a smallish rock, lovely dive, we had squid coming onto our hands, it appeared they were intoxicated by our torch light, magnificent when creatures decide to check you out...

Happy days,,,or should that be nights

Dived out of Le franc, nr Palafrugel, Costa Brave a few years ago, This was a day dive, but........... dropped down & swum along through some caverns & rocks eventually ascending up through an area with high rocks either side of me. It was getting tighter on the way up & as I turned around to squeeze through I saw I was face to face with a massive octopus! Visions of the film 'Alien' flashed through my mind! But the fantastic creature didn't seem bothered by me & stayed the same colour. I know if annoyed they goes orangy-red! I just put a touch more air into my BC & ascended. The crew on the boat would have had that animal for dinner! Damn, this is turning into a Dive forum, sorry.

'cept diving is why many of us own our boats

Easiest night dive ever...Roatan Honduras. There is a gazebo over the water where they leave full tanks if requested in the evening. You fall into the 86* degree water with no wetsuit on, and swim around until low on air while tooling round a sunken ship and airplane. Ahhh the good life!
