December 4, 2021
Course fees: $279, plus online academics
The current wraps around you as glide along the reef seeing more in a single dive than you ever imagined possible. Welcome to drift diving! Learn how to use the tides and currents to your advantage. Earn a Drift Diver Specialty certification from Jupiter Dive Center and put your new skills in action off the Jupiter Coastline!
Drift diving is often the only way to dive certain underwater sites—and that is certainly true of the wrecks and reefs off Jupiter and other parts of the Treasure Coast. But drift diving also offers a way to cover a lot of distance with only a little effort. At the end of the dive, everyone surfaces, and the boat comes to them. It doesn’t get any easier than this!
What to Expect
Like any specialty diving, learning certain techniques and knowing the safety concerns will allow you to enjoy the drift diving experience to its fullest. Students will learn about tides, currents, and waves, how to use drift diving equipment such as floats and reels, the importance of buoyancy control and buddy procedures, how to navigate during drift dives, safety stop procedures, and how to safely get on and off the boat.
