Drift diving in Port Philip is a little different to drift diving in other areas because of strong currents and the amount of boat traffic. Typically divers are split into separate groups, depending on numbers, with each group given a long length of rope, around 50 metres long, with a buoy and dive flag attached to one end. The idea is to descend as a group spaced along the line keeping parallel to the current. It sounds tricky but it isn't. This is really the easiest form of diving as very little kicking is required or navigation — just go with the flow! Your air supply lasts longer and the underwater terrain is always changing.
