PADI Drift Diver Speciality
The PADI Drift Diver Specialty course teaches you how to enjoy going with the flow as you scuba dive down rivers and use ocean currents to glide along.
It feels like flying – except that you’re underwater using scuba equipment. Drift diving can be relaxing and exhilarating at the same time.
If this sound like fun, then the Drift Diver course is for you.
What Will You Learn?
Along with drift diving techniques and procedures, you’ll:
Receive an introduction to drift diving equipment – floats, lines and reels.
Get an overview of aquatic currents – causes and effects.
Practice with buoyancy control, navigation and communication during two drift dives.
Learn techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group as you float with the current.
As long as you are a PADI Open Water Diver (or equivalent) you can begin this Speciality Diver course.
Minimum age is 12 years old.
Similar to many PADI courses, the PADI Drift Diver course is a self-study course.
You'll receive quality training materials from PADI, specifically designed to teach you what you need to know.
Classroom sessions with a qualified PADI Instructor will ensure that you fully understand the information.
