Diving in the dark at night can be an amazing experience especially when the visibility is very good. If you never tried it watch the fantastic diving film “The Abyss” this will give you some idea of what to expect. To get the most out of the dive try a brief period with your torch turned off, now you will see the features illuminated by you buddies torch and because you are not behind the light source you won’t see the reflection from the suspended particles in the water. The effect this has on the large features like the Stanegarth is magical. To swim alongside the wreck and see light streaming out of her portholes from the torches of the divers exploring her cavernous engine room is surreal.
