Dive Buddy - Can You Dive Alone
I would like to know if you can dive alone? In other words, do you need a dive buddy to go scuba diving?
Thanks for the question. Technically, or by the letter of the law - or however you want to phrase it, it is possible to dive alone. There are no scuba police to stop you and some people do dive alone.
However, in scuba certification classes, one of the main scuba safety rules is to never dive alone.
Always dive with a buddy.
I live by this dive safety rule and never dive alone. I think the risk is just too big. For more details on this and other dive rules, you can check out our page on scuba diving safety.
Thanks for your question. Have a safe dive.
