SIDEMOUNT DIVER Relieve the pressure on your back

The PADI Sidemount Diver Course

Find a new exciting and different way to configure your cylinders for technical or recreational diving.

The Fun Part

You can stay longer underwater (bottom time permitting) than having a single cylinder and it relieves some pressure that divers may or may not feel on your back, ensuring a more comfortable and fun dive.

What You Learn

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 (bottom time permitting)

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 clip them on and go.
