Although most scuba dives are made with a buddy, an experienced diver may want or need to make dives without a partner. During the Self-Reliant Diver course, you learn about potential risks of diving alone and the value of equipment redundancy and necessary back-up gear. During three scuba dives, you develop skills for self-reliance and independence, while becoming a stronger partner in a dive pair or team.
Self-reliant divers utilize some more equipment than traditional recreational dive gear, including redundant gas supplies and regulators.
Self-reliant Diver courses start at $399 and include a classroom session and a day of diving and drills.
