What can I expect if I book a Sidemount Course?

This course is for both the recreational and technical diver looking to expand their in-water skills and techniques or the certified diver who has interest in moving forward with their technical diving education and expanding their equipment options. You must be at least 18 years of age to take part in this course and have completed an open water course.

Are you ready to start diving in areas with limited access? Then the TDI sidemount diver course is the next step for you. During this technique focused course, you will be taught how to use two tanks that are mounted on the side of you. This technique is used for diving in areas with caves, wrecks and challenging places to reach. Due to the sidemount divers can have a surplus of gas which makes for longer dives with increased safety due to the bigger gas capacity. 

What are you waiting for? Get your diving gear and hop on over to the Gili’s to learn this awesome skill so you can become a skilled wreck diver.
