Just go with the flow and let the currents do the work for you. It feels like flying – except that you’re underwater using scuba equipment. Improve your buoyancy and air consumption and drift along the reef enjoying the scenery – the boat will come and pick you up. The PADI Drift Diver course is an excellent way to practice your buoyancy skills and see more of the reef .
Along with drift diving techniques and procedures, you’ll receive an introduction to drift diving equipment – floats, lines and reels and get an overview of aquatic currents – causes and effects. You also can practice navigation and communication during two drift dives and learn techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group as you float with the current.
