Drift Diver

Fly the Reef

The PADI Drift Diver Specialty course introduces you to the coolest magic carpet ride you’ll ever experience! Drift Diving is nearly effortless and relaxing. You simply glide along and enjoy the rush of flying underwater while the current does the work.

This course shows you how to enjoy rivers and ocean currents by “going with the flow,” staying with your dive partner, communicating with the dive boat and knowing where you are the whole time.

During your PADI Drift Diver certification course, you learn about:

  • Planning, organisation, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of drift diving
  • An introduction to drift diving equipment – floats, lines, reels
  • Buoyancy-control, navigation and communication for drift diving
  • Site selection and overview of aquatic currents – causes and effects
  • Techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group

Considering Drift Diving? Why not also take a look at the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) Course.  This course introduces you to diving with underwater scooters, which can come in handy whilst drift diving!

If you have any questions about  joining us for some local diving or taking the PADI Drift Diver Course, give us a call or pop into our store.
