PADI SELF RELIANT DIVER

THE FUN PART

When the buddy system works, it works well, but many divers are often left in precarious situations by a bad diving partner. The purpose of the Self-Reliant Diver program is to provide exposure to the skills needed to extricate oneself from such a situation and to emphasize the importance of proper dive planning as a means to avoid such situations in the first instance.

WHAT YOU LEARN

During the Self Reliant Diver Course you will learn:

  • Potential risk of diving alone
  • Value of equipment and necessary back-up gear
  • Develop skills for self-reliance and independence

YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE

To dive without a partner requires diligence, experience. Responsible self-reliant diving is diving alone with the correct mental discipline, attitude and equipment.
