Padi Drift Diving Speciality

Gliding with the currents, watching the underwater Landscape pass you by effortlessly, feeling the rush of flying underwater, is what drift diving is all about.

During your PADI Drift Diver course, you'll go on 2 open water scuba dives (which may be conducted in 1 day). We highly recommended that you enrol in this programme Diving in the Irish sea, Strangford Lough on a liveaboard or at a resort destination where there are strong and predictable currents so that you can expose yourself to the techniques and procedures for drift diving.
