Whilst the buddy system is a great way to dive, there may be situations when divers have to rely on themselves to dive safely or would choose to explore on their own. TDI’s recreational sister agency, SDI, offers the only genuine solo diving qualification currently available. Who is it for? Underwater photographers who prefer to take all the time in the world to get that perfect shot, divers booking single spaces on charters or liveaboards who would like to avoid diving with less qualified buddies, dive professionals who frequently find themselves looking after non-certified divers and those who would simply like to dive more safely.
Combining the benefits of Sidemount diving with a true solo diving qualification, this combo will introduce you to a new way of thinking about diving equipment configuration as well as turning you into a safer diver who truly plans their dives and controls every single aspect of any given dive – whether they set out by themselves or not.
