6 Ripping Drift Dives
Humphead Wrasse, Fakarava
Humphead wrasses are one of the many unique diving companions at the Tumakohua Pass in Fakarava.
We dive for many reasons. Some to shoot photos. Some to count fish. And some of us do it for the rush. Maybe you know the type? Always down for deeper reefs, bigger sharks and faster drifts — the wilder the better. If you're anything like that, lazy drift dives just won't do. You need to feel the pull of the current as it wraps around rocks, to fly in formation alongside schooling sharks and massive manta rays, to barrel roll between coral heads like Maverick blowing the doors off Iceman. If that sounds like your scene, read on for our top picks from the world’s wildest drift dives.
