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. Sound interesting? Sign up for the PADI Sidemount Diver Specialty course.

If you're a PADI Open Water Diver who is at least 15 years old, you can enroll in a PADI Sidemount Diver course.


 Along with learning about 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.

Trim your weight system and sidemount gear so you're perfectly balanced in the water.

Manage gas by switching second stages as planned, if wearing two cylinders.

Respond correctly to potential problems when sidemount diving.

Gear requirements: 

All students must provide their own mask, fins, and snorkel. Additional gear besides the BCD is provided. A side mount BCD is available for rent.  


When selecting your class start date you are choosing your first day of class which is your class room day and confined water portion. Day two (the open water portion) will be scheduled with your instructor upon completing day one of class. 

Class materials must be picked up from the Scubabros dive shop, or other arrangements made for any materials to be mailed to the student.
