Drift diving is a relaxing and enjoyable form of diving that offers an alternative to using lines and other techniques to move against current. It is especially suited to areas with mild to strong current with long reefs, kelp forests or other topography within recreational depth limits. The current allows the diver to see more aquatic life and underwater formations than usual. However, drift diving is often performed more for the experience of underwater flight than for sightseeing.
