The Self-Reliant Diver course is your key to diving without relying on your dive buddy.
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.
To enroll in the PADI Self Reliant Diver Specialty Course you must:
- Be an Advanced Open Water Diver or above
- Have 100 logged dives
- Be at least 18 years old
- Complete a Medical Questionaire
