Side Mount Diving with Spider CrabsSidemount diving has been around for decades in the cave diving world, but only just recently has it become mainstream to the general SCUBA market. And divers who previously had to shy away from carrying heavy twin tanks, such as small women or divers with back problems, are now able to perform normal recreational dives due to the ease of carrying sidemount tanks to the water and donning the tanks in-water versus on land.

Some of the skills you will learn on the course include:
  • Familiarisation with equipment
  • Using twin independent cylinders
  • Proper trim and buoyancy techniques
  • Swapping and sharing cylinders
  • Different entry and exit techniques

Have a minimum Advanced Open Water. Show proof of a minimum 20 logged open water dives.
