    I absolutely love love love night dives. I'd rather to multiple night dives then the standard 2-3 day dives and 1 night dive.

    Is there anywhere that has a large focus on night dives? I can't think of any option to 2-tank night dives other then a shore diving or house resort location.

    Thoughts?

    I know Scuba Club Cozumel offers a 2 tank "twilight" trip. 1st dive starts at dusk, followed by a true night dive. Requires a minimum number of divers to sign up. After you rush back for a late dinner you can then shore dive in the dark too.

    I've seen something similar else maybe once, a twilight/night combo but can't recall where at the moment. It seems likely anything like that would be a once a week thing at most, not nightly, and the shore/resort option is your best bet. (Are you not interested in the shore option, in need of a buddy, or ? - a dive resort with a good house reef seems the ideal way to do this, and you might be able to find a buddy at the right place. Maybe someplace like Cocoview which has a fair amount of variety in what you can hit from the resort.)

    Many liveaboards will give you the option of a night dive every night, but generally not 2 unless maybe you can find one that spends the night in diveable spots and has a "pools always open" routine.

    Jupiter Dive Center offers a 2 tank night dive at least once a month, sometimes twice.

    CocoView shore diving is great, and you can dive anytime you want. You could easily do 2-3 night dives, if you want to stay up that late. Someone told me the early morning pre-dawn dives are really good.

    Check out black water diving at NAD Lembeh Indonesia. I believe they do this for some weeks of the year only. As I recall two day dives and two night dives but as I was not actually doing it I am not sure. There were a couple of guests that were doing it - they got up very late and did not get back until late evening.

    On a wreck no less. You can dive anytime during a 24 hour period if you're so inclined. The only time I ever dived 6 times in one day was at CocoView and that included two nite dives.
