PADI Sidemount Diver
$559 2 days
Sidemountdiving is gaining a lot of popularity in the past years, not only in technical and cave-diving. The benefits in terms of flexibility and gas-supply cause many divers to occasionally switch from mounting their tanks on the back to clipping them on their sides.
This course includes various topics such as equipment configuration and setup, trim, buoyancy and propulsion, gas management, advantages and potential problems. In a confined water session your instructor will explain you how and where to mount and dismount your tanks, how to switch your tank and will work with you on your trim, so you can dive perfectly balanced.
In three open water dives you repeat previously learned exercises together with your instructor and learn how to respond correctly to potential problems while sidemount diving.
After finishing the Knowledge Reviews in the Book and meeting all certification-requirements you will be certified immediately.
