SIDEMOUNT PADI Sidemount Diver Course

PADI Sidemount Diver Course

Find a new and different way to configure your cylinders with the PADI Sidemount Diver course. Sidemount diving offers:

  • an alternative way to streamline in the water
  • easier equipment transportation when topside
  • reduced lower back strain
  • provides redundant gas supply
  • ability to monitor all equipment because it’s in front of you
  • increased gas supply for longer dives

Because you are able to move the cylinder from your back to your side, it instantly takes the pressure off of your back and gives you more flexibility to move and enjoy your dive. Plus, you don’t have to walk to the dive site with the cylinders on your back. You can enter the water and clip them on and go.


To enrol in this course:

  • Participants must be at least 12 years old
  • Must be a PADI Open Water Diver (Junior Open Water Diver) or higher
  • Before participants take part they must fill out Galaxsea's Application and Medical Forms
