If you are lucky enough to experience deep sea diving, then you want to enjoy the amazing activity to the full. For this, you need the best equipment to ensure you have the best adventure and can savor everything around you.
If you are diving in a sunny daytime environment, and not going too deep, then you may not need an artificial torchlight. But the deeper you dive, then the less the sun’s rays can penetrate the water and you will lose those vibrant colors. To see those colors in their true glory, you should consider using a dive light.
An LED dive light mimics the brightness of daylight. This type of light is also more energy efficient than the alternative options. With up to 50,000 hours of life, these are perfect for deep sea divers and cave divers. Worried about shining this brightness on the sea life? No need to be, you can use a filter on the beam. Diffusers come in varying colors, so your glow can spread out, and also stop any glare.
Another type of dive light uses halogen or incandescent gas filled bulbs. They glow with a warmer, but duller yellow lighting. These bulbs eat a lot of power, which shortens their lifespan.
Dive lights can also come with a variety of beams and angles. Should you be following a school of fish, then you are likely to use a narrow beam. For a swim around a sunken ship wreck, you will most certainly prefer a wider beam. This will enable you to see much more. Some dive lights only offer a set beam. Whereas others will allow you to switch beams, according to the angle you need at any given time.
A lightweight, compact dive light, can be hand held, or strapped to your hand for security. There is no excuse to miss out on the vast amounts of wonders waiting at the bottom of the sea.
