Solo Diving – Coming Out of the Closet

Have you ever ended up separated from your buddy or dived with a buddy who’s not really paying much attention to you? Are you an instructor who takes students on their first dives?

At some point all divers have been, or will be, diving solo – whether they intend to or not.

This presentation by leading technical diving instructor Mark Powell challenges the common misconceptions around solo diving and provides useful, informative tips on how to stay safe and get the most out of your diving.

A must watch for all divers, recreational and technical alike.

Filmed at the London International Dive Show (LIDS) in April 2012.

    I enjoyed the Solo diving vidoe

    Pretty much what I have believed in for years. If you have a problem underwater your buddy will be looking the other way. Be prepared to help your self. Train and learn to take care of yourself so that you may help others. Thank you Tim very well explained. Is this video available for downloading?

    So what are the pre requirements for the solo diver course?

    A good presentation by Mark! The only thing missing in my opinion was to further expand on what it means to “solo dive properly”. The sentiment is spot on, like all diving risk mitigations of course. However, emphasis on what the relevant training provides, why it should be undertaken and how it increases solo safety would have been great to hear. I’ll certainly be looking up the course details :-)
