With proper training, equipment and the right attitude to accept the risks involved in independent diving, an experience diver can responsibly engage in dives without a
buddy. Self-reliant diving is an adventure activity that is not for everyone, but does have its place. If you have the mental discipline and commitment to learn and follow
self-reliant diving techniques, you’ll bolster your skills and confidence when diving alone, in a dive pair or as part of a team. Solo Diving is the practice of self reliant scuba
diving without a “dive buddy”. Solo diving, once considered technical diving was once discouraged by most certification agencies. It is now seen by many experienced divers and
some certification agencies as an acceptable practice for those divers suitably trained and experienced. Rather than relying on the traditional buddy diving safety system, solo divers
should be skilled in self-sufficiency and willing to take responsibility for their own safety while diving. The Solo Diver course stresses proper dive planning, personal limitations, and
accident prevention, as well as the benefits, hazards, and proper procedures for diving solo. You will also learn the additional equipment that is required for solo diving including its
proper usage and assembly.
