Sidemount is a scuba diving equipment configuration that has scuba sets mounted alongside the diver, below the shoulders, and along the hips, instead of on the back of the diver. Sidemount diving is the practice of diving with two or more cylinders secured at the sides of the body in line with the torso and without cylinders on the diver's back.

What You Can Expect

You will first perform a confined water dive to get comfortable with your sidemount diving gear. Along with teaching you sidemount diving techniques like frog kicking and how to clip and unclip scuba tanks.


Your PADI instructor will also show you how to swim with a scuba tank in front of you while unclipped, as well as how to switch second stages and control your breathing gas while wearing two scuba tanks.


When you feel confident in these abilities, you will complete three open-water dives where you will put your new knowledge of buoyancy control and problem-solving to the test.
