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 sounds like fun, then the Drift Diver course is for you. If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Drift Diver specialty course.
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.
Get credit! The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
Along with your basic scuba equipment, you’ll learn to use various surface marker buoys and floats with lines and reels. Ask your PADI Instructor at Fish'n Fins about other equipment you may need to get the most of your drift dives.
