Scuba Diving International (SDI) is one of the very first recreational scuba diving Certifying Agencies to advocate solo diving, and create a diver's Specialty Course dedicated to it.

The SDI Solo Diving Manual is complete with warnings about the inherent risks of diving without a buddy.

Solo Diving Manual sections include:

  • Thinking and Acting Outside the Buddy System
  • Beyond Basic Gas Management
  • Dealing with Equipment Issues
  • Dealing with Emergencies without Panic
  • Staying Too Long, Going Too Deep, Getting Lost
  • Special Equipment for Solo Diving
  • The "Perfect" Dive Plan
