The Solo Diver program teaches experienced divers how to safely dive independently of a dive buddy or strengthen your buddy team skills. The course stresses on proper dive planning, personal limitations, accident prevention as well as the benefits, hazards, and proper procedures for diving solo. You will also learn the additional equipment that is required for solo diving including its proper usage and assembly. This is the prefect course for NJ Wreck and Technical Divers. This course is also good for divers who want to be self reliant in the water.
