Who's Your Buddy... Han?

Perhaps it is time for recreational sport diving operations to acknowledge that solo diving is a reasonable option for the experienced diver who is properly equipped. Here is what one respected expert has observed...

"Many divers object to being told that diving alone or as part of a loose group is not permitted. Forced to accept a buddy by the operator they are diving with and with the alternative of not being allowed to dive if they refuse, they will simply remain silent. However, they have no intention of taking any notice of their buddy once underwater.

"This often produces one of two results; either the two divers separate early in the dive or one diver follows the other around, unilaterally ensuring they stay together. Both scenarios only serve to create resentment on all sides: there is absolutely no safety benefit at all from applying the buddy system in this way. In fact, given that both divers would be in a much more relaxed frame of mind and fully aware of the actual situation from the start of the dive, it would actually be safer if the buddy system had never been mentioned at all."
