Self Reliant Diver Distinctive Specialty

All certified divers holding Advanced Open Water Diver Certifications or higher, having logged a minimum of 100 dives, and being 18 years of age or older are eligible to take the PADI Self-Reliant Diver Distinctive Specialty Course. Students must first undergo a “skills assessment” in order to demonstrate a high level of proficiency in basic scuba abilities such as buoyancy and other basic skills learned in the PADI Open Water Diver courses.

The course requires that students have an alternative air supply in the form of a pony bottle capable of providing air for the student for a minimum period of two minutes while swimming at depth. Several “redundant” pieces of basic scuba equipment are required in addition to a reel for inflating a lift bag or delayed surface marker buoy (DSMB).

Courses are always available, but we do not schedule our calendar online. Call us for the most current pricing, promotions, and available course dates 602-844-5732.
