Solo Diver Course

So far the buddy system has been a common practice in the diving world, however, at some point every diver has thought about diving alone.

The solo diver course has its main focus on developing the proper techniques to plan dives conducted alone, to be self-suficient, to prevent problems and to take responsibility for their own safety.

This course is perfect for underwater photographers and videographers, and also for those divers that want to be a more reliable buddy for less experienced divers.

The course requieres an independent study from the student, and will be conducted through two days:

Day 1

Theory lessons, equipment configuration and planning open water dives.


Day 2

Two open water dives supervised by a professional SDI Instructor, final examination.
