Drift Diving

Drift Diving

PADI Specialties

The PADI Drift Diver Specialty course teaches you how to enjoy going with the flow as you scuba dive 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.
