PADI Sidemount Diver

You dont always need to have cylinders on your back when you go diving!

You can see how comfortable our sidemount instructor Paul looks in the top picture on his page, diving Sidemount is convenient, and fun.

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?
