Sidemount - speciality course

A new way to dive

A growing number of divers have recently noticed how easy and lights sidemount diving is and how it brings comfort to diving in a whole new way - both above and below the surface.

Two independent equipment systems bring safety to diving; in case of a problem you can just close the other tank and solve the equipment problem without hassle.

Sidemount diving is also suitable for people with back problems, as you don’t have to carry the weight of a tank on a boat or on the beach on your back. You can secure the bottles in place in water.

During this course You will learn:

  • Properly assemble and configure sidemount scuba diving equipment.
  • Trim your weight system and sidemount gear so you’re perfectly balanced in the water.
  • Manage gas by switching second stages as planned, when wearing two cylinders.
  • Respond correctly to potential problems when sidemount diving.

Sidemount diving has increased in popularity during the years and you can expand your skills after this course with a sidemount course for technical diving.
