PADI Sidemount Diver Course
Find a new and different way to configure your cylinders with the PADI Sidemount Diver course.
Sidemount is a scuba diving equipment configuration which has tanks mounted alongside the diver, below the shoulders and along the hips, instead of on the back. Cave divers initially made this configuration popular as sidemount makes it possible to penetrate into smaller sections of cave and to change tanks more easily. The same benefits for operating in confined spaces were also recognized by divers who conducted technical wreck diving penetrations.
Sidemount is now growing in popularity within the technical diving community for general decompression diving, and is becoming increasingly popular with recreational divers as well.
Sidemount diving offers:
Because you are able to move the cylinder from your back to your side, it instantly takes the pressure off of your back and gives you more flexibility to move and enjoy your dive. Plus, you don’t have to walk to the dive site with the cylinders on your back. You can enter the water and clip them on and go.
Even beginners can learn the sidemount configuration, and you can easily combine sidemount diving with any other PADI Specialty.
There are two courses available: a recreational and a technical diver course.
