Scuba Diving lessons: The PADI Sidemount Diver course.
With the PADI Sidemount Diver course, you will discover a new way to scuba dive.
Sidemount diving has become very popular as it is very comfortable and you will have more supply of your preferred gas to dive with if you dive with two tanks (cylinders).
Diving with a tank (cylinder) on your back is not mandatory; many people have discovered the joy of diving with their tanks on their sides. It is more streamlined underwater which means less effort against currents.
Bonus: Other than to be more comfortable underwater, the great advantage of sidemount scuba diving is in caverns and cave where you can pass thru restrictions easier.
