[Choose #3] I enjoy diving with a dive buddy too much to go it alone. Nothing like sharing the memories of the dive.

[Choose #1] All things learned makes you a better diver, wether you were to do a solo dive or with a buddy I would think.

[Choose #1] Solo diving is nice when you have no one to dive with. But it’s always fun going with someone.

[Choose #1] I took a solo dive class thru SDI-it teaches better self-reliance & self-rescue than PADI. It also teaches better dive planning skills & air usage calculation. I still dive w/buddies, but I’m now a more confident & competent diver.

[Choose #2] It would be a great course for many divers to learn new skills even though they may not want to solo dive.. But I would not take the Solo Dive Course...

[Choose #1] although I advocate diving with a buddy, I think that anything a diver does to improve their skills is good. Regardless of your "solo" cert. many dive sites/operators still require that you dive with a buddy...
