Has any one heard that a professional Diver (Instructor, Dive Master, Dive Control Specialist) can Solo Dive at the quarry even if they don’t have a Solo Card?

When you think about it, just about any dive an instructor does with students is a solo dive.

So you are an instructor and let’s say you have 6 students on OW dive 1. Perfectly fine, right?
Which one of those 6 students will be able to assist that instructor in any way if there is a problem.

It’s a solo dive.

As for the quarry: they appear risk averse so i’m sure you will never get them to admit to this policy. Sometimes a good way to reduce liability is not monitor what people do TOO closely when they hit the water.

Does white star quarry check thurily if your solo diving ?

If the officials see what they think a solo diver going in the water, they wait for that diver to get out, and nab them at that point. Almost a sting operation. Why not question the diver before they commit an error and have to pay a large fine?

Do all of the dive sites in Ohio have fun police?

Nothing but complaints about Gilboa. I get grief about that place, all the way down in Tortola, Roatan, and Coz, every time someone sees my location on a waiver form.

Say it ain’t so.

If you need a buddy towards the end of summer or august, I should be game for either of those. Going to see if Deep Six can do my Advance OW at Gilboa about then.
