As a strong reminder that diving can be dangerous if safety protocols are not followed.
This diver was solo diving & I will strongly defend my self ,in saying that solo diving is not a taboo. Ref PADI self reliant diver specialty course & that I have done my self many solo dives. Solo diving is like cave or wreck diving, the risks are obviously far higher and training for such dives are vital. This is why I strongly recommend to be at least a Padi Rescue Diver
& stand by this statement.
I also recommend that divers should also consider going further & potentially earning there Master Scuba Diver
This will vastly improve ones abilities, give them a minimum of 50 logged dives, this equates to more time in the water & therefore more exsperience.
And alternatiively a lot of fun & a diving level to be proud of. With my 20 years experience, 14 years of teaching experience, 800 + divers trained & 10,000 + dives,
I strongly believe that what we offer at jeffsdivingworld new service of guided dives with intro to adverse conditions like high surf etc is invaluable to all future divers and divers who are seeking extra experience and diving qualifications.
