The PADI Drift Diver course teaches proper and safe drifting.
Drift diving is certainly one of the most exiting and exhilaring things to do underwater.
If you never glide on the air or are scare about hights, you can still glide underwater using currents and tides.
Drifting underwater is like flying, but you are underwater and see the ground passing fast under you as you are diving with the flow.
With the PADI Drift Diver course, you will learn how to master currents and tide to use them for your own fun.
So ride with the waves and currents underwater and glide freely in this exhilarating adventure during this course.

Why do you need to learn how to drift underwater?
Diving while drifting require some knowledge and techniques, as well as strong communication skills.
For example, if you are too late to jump in the water, your buddies might start to be exhausted fighting against the current if the boat is anchored or need to stay in place.
Underwater while enjoying drifting or gliding in the current, you need to be aware of the team as it can split in a second and you might not be able to reach your team back as the current will push you apart.
Exiting after your dive can also be exhausting without proper techniques to use the current instead of fighting against it.
Overall drift diving is an exciting and exhilarating ride underwater that a scuba diver should not miss. But you need to learn some new skills, have an excellent buoyancy, learn to join lines, and much more to glide underwater safely.
During the PADI Drift Diver course, you will learn:
During this course, you will learn coordination with the team and your buddy to not be swept away. You will also study how to join a line, currents, waves, and tides and how to handle them during a dive.
- Use of floats and reels as well as SMB (Surface Marker Buoy).
- Enhancement of your buoyancy control.
- Navigation and communication while drifting underwater.
- Techniques in floating with your buddies in the current.
- Coordination entry and exit.
But the most important is how fun it is to glide and drift while scuba diving.
