    In Southern California: Boats? yes, all of them. If you can't dive solo, you might not be the best "buddy diver" either - I guess the theory goes - plus we have a ton of shutterbugs and once in a while hunters.
    Now the beach diving is another story, I wouldn't try it around most lifeguards during the summer - litigious California liability concerns and what not. . . if I need a solo dive during the summer in So. California, particularly Laguna Beach, I wait until the lifeguards go home - so that means night diving, which is very cool too if the conditions are a go. (smallish surf, decent vis - etc)

    My last dives on a charter in Jersey were Solo...I've been on that particular boat several times though...I was ready at the tuna door before the line was fully set, as soon as it was I jumped in and went down, got back on the boat an hr later with no beefs so I did the same for the second dive....The first time I was on that boat last summer the Captain thought I was diving for yrs when in fact that was my first time on a charter boat and around my 15th dive
