DRIFT DIVER SPECIALTY
As of January 1, 2017, DIVING FOR FUN will NO LONGER be offering training services. However, we wanted to continue to provide a list of the classes we offered along with course outlines as a reference for all our past customers.

Drift Diver - Ocean CurrentCourse Overview: Drift Diving is effortless and relaxing because you simply glide with the current and feel the rush of flying underwater. But, with this type of diving comes with special procedures that you need to know so you can maximize your fun underwater. Drift Dives are great fun! Perfect for trips to Cozumel, Belize, Cayman, Virgin Islands, and the Florida Keys.

Prerequisites: Must be at least 12 years old and certified as a Junior Open Water Diver or an Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification from another training organization.

Drift Diver - Neutral BuoyancyCourse Activities: You will learn about planning, organization, procedures, techniques, problems and hazards of drift diving, special equipment - floats, lines, reels, proper procedures for buoyancy-control, navigation and communication, site selection and overview of aquatic currents - causes and effects, and techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group. You will put your new knowledge into action because you will do two dives under the supervision of an instructor.
  • Classroom: There is one classroom session. The classroom session will cover the chapter on Drift Diving in the Adventures in Diving Manual, review your knowledge review answers and prepare you for each of the two open water dives.
  • Independent Study: Read the chapter on Drift Diving in the Adventures in Diving Manual and complete the knowledge review located at the end of the chapter. You will need to turn in the knowledge review prior to certification or provide a copy of an Adventure Log signed by an appropriate instructor if you have already done dive one in connection with your Adventure Diver or Advanced Open Water Diver Certification.
  • Open Water Dives: The 2 open water dives are done on a dive trip.
Drift Diver - Drifting with Ocean CurrentForms Required: Students training will need to complete the three (3) forms: Liability Release, Statement of Understanding, and Medical Statement prior to entering the water.
