|If up until now your experience with
currents has been swimming against them, drift diving will give you whole new
appreciation for them. Drift diving is specialized diving based on the philosophy
that if you can't swim against the current, drift with it. |
Drift diving is
exciting. In some drift diving sites, the current carries you much faster than
you could swim, sailing you along effortlessly. It's no wonder that drift diving
in clear water has been compared to flying - only without needing an airplane!
OverviewDrift diving is one of the most relaxing dives one can make,
since nature provides the needed propulsion. As a diver, you can concentrate
on observing the environment and marine life without having to worry about "where's
the boat?", and you can cover significantly more ground.
