Sidemount Diver

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. Sidemount diving gives you flexibility and streamlining options. Plus, you don’t have to walk with heavy cylinders on your back – just enter the water, clip them on and go.
Along with learning the many benefits of diving with a sidemount configuration, during one confined water and three open water scuba dives you’ll learn how to:
Properly assemble and configure sidemount scuba diving equipment
Bouyancy & trim for sidemount Diving
Manage gas by switching second stages as planned
Respond correctly to potential problems when sidemount diving
