    Other than the 5 OW dives, zero. There werenít any DMís or guides back then. We didnít need guides or DMís we were taught how to dive during the 12 weeks of classes.

    I never dove with a guide or dive master and did not take an OW course until I had already been diving for 4 years. I only had about 4 or 5 dives total when the only person I knew that dove stopped so by dive 6 I was solo diving. As for shallow water shore dives, if there is nothing challenging about the location you and your buddy should be fine going it alone.

    I started diving without a DM or instructor right after I finished my OW. I did dive with a lot of different, but experienced divers. It was a good learning environment for me.

    It's interesting to read all the beginnings. My dive buddy, husband, is much more gung-ho. I'm excited, I just have a healthy dose of fear, and he's ready to go jump in the nearest lake at a moments notice, lol.
