Fancy a drift dive?

Famous for its strong underwater currents, the Maldives offer plenty of exciting drift dives. If you are fond of drift diving, and have already been diving in the Maldives, you will agree that it is one of the best destination for drift dives!

If you have never done a drift dive before, and want to fully enjoy your first experience, we would recommend you to take the SSI Waves, Tides and Currents Specialty with one of our diving instructors at TGI Maldives. This specialty will give you a basic understanding and knowledge of tides and currents as well as some essential tips and techniques to enjoy flying along the reef!

Thanks to their excellent knowledge of the underwater areas around the dive centers, our diving instructors will take you to some great spots for drift diving, such as Bathala Maaga Kan Thila, Fish Head and Maaya Thila to name a few.

Whether you are an expert or a novice drift diver, safety comes first! Here are some rules to follow for a safe and fun drift dive:
– make sure you carry and use an SMB;
– streamline your gear to avoid damaging the reef;
– be properly weighted and neutrally buoyant;
– concentrate on your surroundings and changing conditions;
– do not fight current, work with it not against it.
