Thailand Diving Courses


Gliding with the currents, feeling the rush of flying underwater, is what drift diving in Thailand is all about.

PADI Drift Diver Specialty Course with Dive The World Thailand

During your PADI Drift Diver programme, you'll go on 2 open water dives (which may be conducted in 1 day). We highly recommended that you enrol in this programme on a Similan liveaboard to expose yourself to the techniques and procedures for drift diving.

Topics covered include:

  • The planning, organisation, problems and hazards of drift diving;
  • Special equipment - floats, lines, reels;
  • Proper procedures for buoyancy-control, navigation and communication;
  • Site selection and an overview of aquatic currents causes and effects;
  • Techniques for staying close to a buddy or together as a group.

The elective Drift Dive from the Adventures In Diving programme may be counted towards this specialty.
