SSI Dive Courses

Sidemount Diver Course


Exploration, Emotion, Experiences

Carrying scuba tanks on your back is not a requirement to explore the underwater world. Many divers have found the pleasure of mounting the bottles on the sides .
Side mount diving gives you flexibility and options to achieve a hydrodynamic position . Plus, you won’t have to walk around with the heavy bottles on your back – just jump into the water, hook them up, and you’re done.
