Why should I do this course? Having tanks on your back is not a requirement for exploring the underwater world. Sidemount diving gives you flexibility and streamlining options. This course is ideal for divers who struggle to make their air last! Plus, you don't have to worry about walking with heavy cylinders on your back - just enter the water and clip them on at the surface!
What you will learn: Along with learning the many benefits of diving with a sidemount configuration, during your course you will learn to:
Properly assemble and configure sidemount scuba equipment
Trim your weight system and sidemount gear so you are perfectly balanced in the water
Manage gas by switching second stages as planned, if wearing two cylinders
