Most scuba divers have thought about diving alone.  And most scuba divers have probably had experiences where they’ve been teamed up with an inexperienced dive buddy.  The SDI Solo Diver Course will teach you the skills you need to be self-sufficient while diving and responsible for your own safety underwater.  If you’re interested in learning how to safely dive without a dive buddy or looking to strengthen your buddy team diving skills, then the Solo Diver Course is for you.

The Solo Diver Course stresses the importance of proper dive planning, teaches you to identify and work with personal limitations, and how to prevent accidents.  It will also teach you the benefits and hazards of diving alone, and the proper procedures for diving solo.  You will learn about the additional equipment that is required for solo diving including its proper usage and assembly. 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.

Conducted over two days, Big Blue adds two additional dives to the course requirements to take your diving to a new level. The course can be conducted with the use of a pony or stage tank or for those already certified, sidemount or twinset.

To register for the Solo Diver Course you must be at least 21 years old with an Advanced certification from any agency.  You must also have proof of 100+ logged dives.
