PADI Sidemount Speciality
Carrying dive bottles on your back is not a requirement to explore the underwater world. Many divers have discovered the pleasure of mounting the bottles to the sides. Side-mount diving gives you flexibility and options to achieve a hydrodynamic position. Plus, you won’t have to walk with the heavy bottles on your back – just step into the water, hook them up, and you’re done. Sound interesting to you? Sign up for the PADI Sidemount course.
