Drift Divers in Water with Flag

The PADI Drift Diver Specialty course teaches you how to enjoy going with the flow as you 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. Drifting allows Lahaina Divers to avoid some of the more commonly seen dive sights and seek out new and exciting locations. If this sound like fun, then the Drift Diver course is definitely for you. This course will teach you how to use floats, lines and reels as well as giving you an overview of the causes and effects of aquatic currents. The Drift diver specialty provides practice with buoyancy control, navigation and communication and teaches techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group as you float with the current.

Get credit! The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.

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.

  • Be aware that PADI specialty classes do not allow students to be in any type of overhead environment making Lanai not a good charter on which to do specialties.
  • Most specialty courses can be completed as beach dives, however, completing them off the boat is an option.
  • You do not need to be a PADI certified diver to do PADI Specialty courses. Equivalent certification from any recognized scuba certification agency is fine (NAUI, SSI, SDI, CMAS, etc.).
  • As with any training, you will need to complete the PADI Medical Questionnaire and get Physician’s clearance if needed.
