Learn to configure your dive cylinder in a new and different way with the PADI Sidemount Diver course.
Sidemount offers an alternative way to streamline yourself and your equipment by positioning your scuba cylinders on the side of your body. This provides more flexibility to move in the water and takes the pressure off your back. Another benefit to this program is that with two air cyclinders, you increase your bottom time with the additional gas supply.
