The PADI Drift Diver Specialty Course is the perfect class to take when we have the Niagara River and Chippawa Creek in our backyard to share with you.

Learn about the different types of drift diving environments and how to safely dive them as well as how to use some of the specialty equipment and techniques we utilize to make diving here more comfortable and safer.

Drift Diving is fun, easy on some dives and can be challenging on more advanced drifts with stronger currents that can test your gas consumption, directional awareness and confidence.

The PADI Drift Diver Specialty Course offers you a sampling of different drift diving environments and will give you experience to drift dive most places after certification.
