PADI Sidemount

PADI Sidemount Diver Course 

 Find a new and different way to configure your cylinders with the PADI Sidemount Diver course. Sidemount diving offers: 

  • an alternative way to streamline in the water 
  • easier equipment transportation when topside 
  • reduced lower back strain  
  • provides redundant gas supply 
  • ability to monitor all equipment because it’s in front of you 
  • increased gas supply for longer dives

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.   

Prerequisites:  
     - PADI Open Water Diver 
     - At least 15 years old 

You can easily combine sidemount diving with any other PADI Specialty you have take. Contact your local PADI Dive Center or Resort to sign up for the PADI Sidemount course today!
