The Course

The Scuba Gear You Use

All the equipment you will need is included in the PADI Drift Diver Specality Course. You'll use all the basic scuba gear including a mask and snorkel, fins, a wetsuit, a buoyancy compensating jacket (BCD) that carries your weights and scuba tank, a scuba regulator to breathe from and instrumentation to monitor depth and air supply.
