Have you ever been separated from your buddy during a dive?

Service Description

Or had a buddy so engrossed in a task that you realised if something went wrong that you'd have to fend for yourself? This course aims to train divers in the benefits, hazards and proper procedures of diving solo. Upon successful completion of this course, graduates may engage in solo diving activities. What you get from this course: This is the perfect course for underwater photography and underwater video divers as well as those diving with their children or buddies that may not be very experienced in scuba diving. At one point or another, many divers have found themselves alone during a dive, whether it was intentional or not. SDI’s Solo Diving is the practice of self-reliant scuba diving without a “dive buddy”. Solo diving, once considered technical diving and discouraged by most certification agencies, 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.
