PADI Recreational Sidemount diving

With sidemount diving gaining in popularity and gaining more mainstream exposure, I decided it was time to check it out myself.

Having the opportunity to attend a PADI Tec Explorer event at Team Blue Immersion, Dahab, Egypt. I jumped at the chance to take the recreational PADI Sidemount Diver course (PADI offers two courses – Recreational and Tec). For those of you looking to step into Tec or just to try something different, I can’t recommend an event like Tec Explorer enough.

First maybe I should address the question – I don’t cave dive, so why sidemount?

Sidemount has a number of benefits for the recreational diver far beyond merely cave diving:

  • Comfort – Especially for those divers with back issues.

  • Control – Streamlining helps improve buoyancy control

  • Efficient – Takes less energy

  • Peace of mind – More redundancy and more air supply, less stress longer dives

  • Fun – Enjoy your diving!
