Self Reliant Diver


The PADI Self Reliant Diver Course has been developed to focus on the need for divers to be more self sufficient for those occasions when a buddy may not be around.

It is not a course for everyone and certainly not one to be taken lightly so the pre-requisites have been set accordingly.

It is intended for experienced divers who wish to develop their skills generally – perhaps in preparation for further advanced training.

The course covers:

  • The value and application of the buddy system
  • The philosophy of, and motivation for, diving without a partner
  • Potential risks of diving alone, and how to manage those risks

The course would be ideally suited to:

  • Photographers
  • Videographers
  • Marine biologists
  • Divemasters
  • Divers considering Divemaster training
  • Potential technical divers


  • PADI Advanced Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification from another traning organization
  • Have a minimum 100 logged dives
  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Successfully complete a dive skills assessment by a PADI Self-Reliant Diver Specialty Instructor

Duration: 1 full day + Orientation evening


  • PADI Self Reliant Diver Study Guide
  • 3 Dives
  • Tanks & Weights Hire (Full gear hire $75)

Cost: $395
