Blue Label Diving is pleased to offer all levels of Sidemount diving training courses from TDI & PADI. From recreational two tank diving to advanced technical sidemounting in overhead environments and even instructor levels. The only drawback is that once you dive sidemount, you may never want to return to backmount diving!
Sidemount Diving evolved in the early years of cave diving, pioneered by explorers such as Lamar Hires as a means to use multiple tanks in a streamlined a compact fashion to get places that backmounted divers could not. As time went on, the technique has matured and envolved to become one of the fastest growing areas of our sport.
Sidemount Diving Courses are a useful stand-alone course for the technical diver who wants to become more skilled and proficient with different gear configurations regardless of if he intends to use sidemount all the time. The course may also be taught in conjunction with any of TDI’s other open circuit specialty courses, on the condition that all prerequisites and standards applicable to both courses are fully met.
