Padi Side Mount Specialty specialty course will teach you to dive no longer with the tank on your
back, but with two tanks on the sides of your body.
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.
Side Mount Specialty course 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.

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.
The advantages of side mounting?
Two cylinders mean more air supply for longer dives, also allowing you more control of the equipment because it is in front of you.
