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. If this sound like fun, then the Drift Diver course is for you.
If you’re a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 12 years old, you can enroll in the Drift Diver specialty course.
What will we cover during this course?
We will cover theorie related to drift diving and we will be doing 2 dives so we can put our practise what we have learned.
The learning objectives are:
Reasons why people drift dive and its advantages and disadvantages.
Drift dive environments.
Types of drift diving and surface supervision.
Drift diving equipment and boats.
During the dives we will Practice with buoyancy control, navigation and communication. We will also practise techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group as you float with the current.
Observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. Improve the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevate them to the next level.
Excellent buoyancy control is what defines skilled scuba divers. You’ve seen them underwater. They glide effortlessly, use less air and ascend, descend or hover almost as if by thought. They more easily observe aquatic life without disturbing their surroundings. You can achieve this, too. The PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty course improves the buoyancy skills you learned as a new diver and elevates them to the next level.
PADI (Junior) Open Water Divers or higher, who are at least 10 years old, are eligible to take the Peak Performance Buoyancy course.
During the Open Water Diver course we train you to become a diver. Many of the skills are directed towards knowing how to handle different situations, such as clearing your mask under water. Buoyancy skills are trained as well. In my experience, many starting divers could use additional training in buoyancy skills to improve their trim. The buoyancy clinic included in this course is exactly that extra bit of training designed to improve your trim.
Be the scuba diver everyone wants to follow because you know where you are and where you’re going. The PADI Underwater Navigator course fine-tunes your observation skills and teaches you to more accurately use your compass underwater. If you like challenges with big rewards, take this course and have fun finding your way.
