(a.k.a. Drift Diving)
Anybody who wants to dive on vacation at the top spots should understand and know how to handle water movements. This can be the waves when entering from shore, or the rip current in a channel next to an island, or just the current on a dive.
There are many things to learn about currents such as:
If the current is blowing against the diver, how much current can a diver deal with?
How does the diver move effectively in the current? How can somebody determine the strength of a current and plan the dive accordingly?
WAVES, TIDES & CURRENTS can help you answer all of these questions. It is taught in conjunction with a minimum of 2 open water dives.
