Gliding with the current, feeling the rush of 'flying' underwater, is what drift diving is all about. Indonesia has some of the strongest currents in the world so this is a great place to master this exhilarating scuba technique.
During your PADI Drift Diver programme, you'll go on 2 open water dives (which may be conducted in one day). We highly recommended that you enrol in this programme to expose yourself to the techniques and procedures for drift diving since many the the oceans larger creatures can be seen more frequently in currents.
Topics covered include:
The elective drift dive from the Adventures In Diving programme may be counted towards this specialty.
You'll use your standard scuba equipment on the course, plus various surface marker buoys, floats, lines and reels. The programme includes a copy of the PADI Drift Diver manual and you will need to watch the related video.
If you're an Open Water Diver and at least 12 years old, you can take the Drift Diver course.
