Independent Diving

Part Number:INDEPENDENT Manufacturer: Beyond Land Adventures

While we always encourage diving with a buddy, certain experienced divers may find themselves in a situation where they may need to be ready to respond independently to an emergency situation. This course teaches how to carry redundant gear and utilize it in the unlikely event of an emergency. In addition, you will learn how to adjust your dive planning and preparation for the realities of diving without a buddy.
