Sidemount Diving

Experience more freedom underwater

Experience the unparalleled sense of comfort that sidemount diving provides. At our dive center, we started last year to integrate sidemount diving and now it’s time for us to share our expertise with you. Whether you’re into technical or recreational diving, sidemount offers countless advantages.

With multiple independent cylinders, you can bid farewell to worries about running out of air, ensuring your safety and peace of mind.

Achieving the perfect diving position, maintaining trim and mastering buoyancy become remarkably simpler in sidemount, allowing you to maintain the advantageous head-up position. And if you’re making the switch from backmount, you’ll quickly realize that sidemount is not only easier on your back but also a breeze to handle.

Get ready to discover a whole new level of diving freedom with sidemount and register on one of our sidemount options. We currently offer two different sidemount courses: the SSI Recreational Sidemount course and the SSI XR Sidemount course. Both courses are designed with beginners in mind and require no prior sidemount experience.

The Recreational Sidemount course is the perfect introduction into the sidemount world and our instructors will help you to understand the different techniques to balance the tanks, handle your equipment and get to experience the advantages of sidemount diving. The XR course takes your underwater exploration to the next level, offering advanced techniques and even introducing a third tank into the mix.

Join us in this new adventure!

Benefit from tanks on your side

Sidemount diving is a scuba diving configuration in which the diver wears tanks on their sides rather than on their back, offering increased maneuverability and redundancy.

Special Training

It’s important to note that while sidemount diving offers many advantages, it also requires proper training and experience to ensure safety. Divers should undergo specialized training to learn the techniques, equipment setup, and safety protocols associated with sidemount diving.
