    The PADI Drift Diver Specialty course introduces you to the coolest magic carpet ride you’ll ever experience. This course shows you how to enjoy rivers and ocean currents by “going with the flow,” staying with your dive partner, communicating with the dive boat and knowing where you are the whole time.

    What’s involved in the course?

    During your PADI Drift Diver course you’ll learn about drift dive planning, organisation, dive techniques as well as special equipment. But it’s not all theory as you’ll go on two open water dives where you can put your new knowledge into action.
