Sidemount Diving Courses

Who should take the padi sidemount course?

Having scuba tanks on your back isn’t a requirement for exploring the underwater world. Many scuba divers have discovered the joy of mounting cylinders on their sides too. Sidemount diving gives you more flexibility and streamlining for underwater diving. You don’t have to walk with heavy cylinders on your back – just enter the water, clip them on and go. Interested?
