PADI Sidemount Diver Course with Aquatic Dreams Scuba Center


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. Sidemount diving 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.

To enroll in the PADI Sidemount Diver Course, you must be a PADI Open Water Diver who is at least 15 years old, to enroll in the Sidemount Diver Coure. This speciality also counts towards your Master Scuba Diver Certification.
