SideMount

Sidemount Diver Course

Sidemount is a scuba diving configuration which has tanks mounted alongside the diver, below the shoulders and along the hips, instead of on the back of the diver. It is a popular configuration with advanced cave divers, as smaller sections of cave can be penetrated and tanks can be changed with greater ease. Sidemount is also growing in popularity with open water and technical divers who have difficulty handling the heavy double tanks commonly used by cave divers.
