PADI Sidemount Diver

PADI Sidemount Diver

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.


Sidemount equipment (regulators and harness) and sidemount cylinders are included within the course costs, however the remaining equipment hire is NOT included in the course cost.

  • Minimum Requirements

    If you're;

    • A PADI Open Water Diver
    • At least 15 years old
    • Have dived in the last 6 months

    then you can enroll in a PADI Sidemount Diver course.
