Is it worth buying your own scuba gear?
Once you want to make the step forward to become a professional or technical diver, owning your scuba gear is required and often mandatory before starting your dive training. If you want to dive in cold water, it is often better to buy your own scuba gear.
How deep can a beginner scuba dive?
Your first dives will be to 12 meters/40 feet or shallower. The maximum depth allowed for any dive during the open water course is 18 meters/60 feet. You’ll make four open water dives in total, usually over two days.
Is it OK to scuba dive alone?
Diving alone is strongly discouraged by many diving certification agencies, especially for those who do not have a dive master certificate or specialized training. Several training agencies, however, offer courses in solo or self-reliant diving.
