Dangers associated with diving alone can be lessened greatly if the diver is highly competent. Regardless of whether the diver is diving alone or with a companion, moments of crisis can be addressed effectively if the diver is a competent solo diver. Such is important since statistics show that about two-thirds of the fatal buddy dives involves a diver who was separated from his buddy. Dive accidents can also be minimized if the diver is physically fit and has proper diving equipment.
