Drifting along the reef, watching everything fly by as you glide on past with your dive buddy is the ultimate dive plan and something that we specialize in here in the Red Sea. If you like the sound of this style of diving then the SSI Waves, Tides & Currents specialty is definitely a course for you! The SSI Waves, Tides & Currents specialty will teach how to deal with the current and go with it.
Along with drift diving techniques and procedures, you’ll:
