It sounds more dangerous, but that makes it exciting! In terms of being able to “spot” the entry, the lights might actually make it helpful to know which way is down. The most difficult scenario is when the water and sky look the same. My guess is they’ll point the lights at the surface of the water so the divers can see it. An all-black sky as a background will be a good contrast, so they should see just fine.
