Drift diving is the norm in places, like Cozumel, where prevailing ocean currents can make it difficult, if not impossible, to swim back to an anchored dive boat at the end of a dive. Rather than swimming against a strong current, the secret to drift diving is to go with the flow, follow your guide, and enjoy the ride. If you wish to stop, just duck in behind a large coral head or outcropping on the reef. You will be pleased to find that the fish, when they need a rest, do the very same thing.
