PADI Self-Reliant Diver Course

The course aims to give experienced divers a sense of freedom, but ensuring that this freedom is provided safely in a way that minimizes risk.

Divers are taught procedures and drills that will allow them to plan and carry out dives all on their own.

WHO is up for adventure?

Any Advanced Open Water Diver over the age of 18 can complete the PADI Self-Reliant Diver course as long as they have proof of at least 100 logged dives.

WHAT will I learn?

The course incorporates technical diving skills and sidemount diving techniques as well as self-rescue skills.

WHERE will it take me?

To your underwater paradise without the need for a dive buddy to accompany you and be nearby at all times.

The self-reliant diver course is idea for videographers and photographers who need to spend great lengths of time underwater in order to get the ideal shot.

WHEN will I be ready?

The PADI Self-Reliant course comprises 5 dives over the course of 2 or 3 days.

WHY should I be excited?

Have you always wanted to experience the exhilarating feeling of being alone underwater?

Perhaps you need to remove yourself from the crowd to get the perfect shot with your camera, and it’s not always convenient to remain close to your buddy?

That’s where the PADI Self-Reliant course comes into play.

HOW do I do it?

Although PADI makes use of the buddy system in almost all scenarios, taking this course will give you the added confidence to dive safely on your own.

Divers are equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to safely self-rescue in the rare case of an emergency.
