Drift diving is a specialized form of boat diving allowing you to drift with the underwater currents during your entire dive. The boat is never anchored or moored and follows the group of divers the entire time. Drift diving allows you to:
· Enjoy the dive more because you don’t have to swim against the current
· Cover and see a large area in a short time
· Use the current to move you in the direction you want to go
There are several forms of drift diving, and like all specialty forms of diving, require orientation and training from someone who knows the procedures and techniques used in the area you’ll be diving. The different types of drift diving are: float drift and live boat drift.
