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.

There is nothing to stop you from going out and doing a drift dive as an Open Water Diver. However, drift diving or for that matter any type of diving in a current is an extra element of risk that can put you in harm’s way if you do not know or understand what you are up against.

To get the most out of your drift dives, we recommend taking the PADI Drift Diver Specialty certification.

The drift diver course includes a knowledge segment and two drift dives. The PADI course highlights the following material in the knowledge segment:

  • Planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of drift diving
  • An introduction to drift diving equipment — floats, lines, reels
  • Buoyancy-control, navigation and communication for drift diving
  • Site selection and overview of aquatic currents
  • Causes and effects
  • Techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group
