Diving in sidemount configuration is the process of taking one or two cylinders and placing them on either side of your body, rather than mounting them on your back. The greatest strength is the complete self-sufficiency of the diver. Sidemount diving is much more than just a change in equipment.
Try it and see!
Sidemount equipment and harness are custom fitted to each individual, accommodating divers of all shapes and sizes.
The PADI Sidemount Diver Specialty Course teaches you how to configure and use one or two cylinders mounted at your sides instead of on your back. Experience a different way to streamline in the water, reduce lower back strain and take advantage of the increased gas supply for longer dives.
