If you’d like to dive with the mysterious deepsea Periphylla jellyfish, you have come to the right place!
The Periphylla jellyfish live several hundred or even thousands of meters deep in the open ocean and is only seen by divers on very rare occasions.
To join the Periphylla Safari is one thing, in the middle of the winter it is special. To go dive during the middle of the night in the middle of a fjord is why the Periphylla Safari is so special. But since this is the period when they come to the surface, we need to go during the night to get this unique encounter.
Lectures are included on the Periphylla Safari.
The Periphylla Safari gives you a great opportunity to experience this awesome deepsea creature close, and our wreck diving is also spectacular this time of the year. If you want a longer stay it is possible to book extra days before and after the Periphylla Safari.
Diving with the Periphylla takes place in 300 meters deep water, in the middle of the night and in the middle of the winter far from land. Good buoyancy control and diving skills is a must for obvious reasons.
If you find this interesting, join us for a truly one of a kind dive experience. To make the dives safe and enjoyable we use a setup with a buoy with a weighted line with lights attached. All participants must do a training dive on the first night of the safari to see how it work in a safe location.
Join the Periphylla Safari and get spectacular night diving
The bell of the Periphylla may reach 15-20 cm in height and the 12 tentacles grow to almost half a meter each. The Periphylla is bioluminescent and it can produce its own light. At the same time, it is allergic to sunlight and prefers the deep water.
Not many underwater photographers have pictures of the Periphylla. Join the Periphylla Safari next time and become one of them! The Periphylla jellyfish is unlike anything else above or below the surface and organized Periphylla diving is only offered by us as a unique product. Read more here: ScubaPixel.com
