What is 'Fluo Diving'?

'Fluo' Diving or Fluorescence Diving is when you use a special uv/blue torch and a yellow/orange filter on either your mask or camera.

Many creatures and coral have fluorescent proteins within them, when these proteins are excited by specific wavelengths of light; they fluoresce in various colors ranging from green to yellow to red and even blue!

What is 'Fluorescence'?

Fluorescence is described as when a object produces light, when it is excited by another light source.  With respect to Fluo diving the fluorescence is usually in a different color to the excitation source, i.e. the source is blue/UV while the florescence can be almost any color!

Do I need a filter on my mask/camera?

The yellow/orange filters provided for divers masks and camera's are designed to filter out most of the blue excitation light; which allows the fluorescence of the subject to be seen better.  The effect can still be seen without the filters, but there will often be a blue cast over the subject due to the excitation light.
