At one point or another, many divers have found themselves alone during a dive, whether it was intentional or not. Solo Diving is the practice of self-reliant scuba diving without a “dive buddy. ”Solo diving” is now seen by many experienced divers & some certification agencies as an acceptable practice for those divers suitably trained & 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 is one of the most challenging recreational courses you can take. Your instructor will challenge you with no mask swims, recording your SAC rate, affixing spare gas sources, general dive planning and pre-dive preparation. Whether you want to dive alone or just want to be better prepared for diving with others (especially your family, children or less experienced divers), the goal of this class is to make a diver completely self sufficient, for themselves and others.
