John,

 

I know of at least one payout that was delayed while the insurers wrangled about the fact that he was diving without a buddy at the time of the accident. So probably not a red herring!

 

Insurers typically will insure within the limits of your qualification-not beyond it.

 

If your dependents don't get a life insurance pay out, they are more likely to go after the diver operator.....

 At our House reef ( Alor-Divers , Alor Archipelago, Indonesia ) we allow solo diving. of course it all depends on sea condition and diver experience . we ask to not go deeper than 12M ( plenty enought to enjoy or photograf ) and we supply with a pony bottle if requested. i have myself more than 6000 dives  ( more than 1000 with camera ), and i enjoy solo diving, especilly for photography. i don't think it is a lot more dangerous as long as the condition are nice and easy...
