Sidemount

As equipment changes make diving easier, they are incorporated into diving. One of those changes has been sidemount cylinders. Sidemount cylinder use has exploded on the scuba diving scene. This course is designed to teach certified divers how to safely utilize side-mounted primary cylinders as an alternative to the traditional back-mounted configuration. The course is strictly non-decompression with a maximum depth limit of 40 metres/130 feet, or within the limit of the student’s current certification, whichever is shallower
