Sidemount Diving

Be one of the first to receive the Sidemount Diver Specialty in Utah. Diving in Sidemount configuration is the process of taking one or two cylinders and placing them on either side of your body, rather than mounting them on your back, (traditionally known as back mount.)

  • Sidemount equipment is an innovative gear arrangement which may be used for all types of diving and is unlike any other gear arrangement that a diver may be accustomed to using.
  • Sidemount equipment configuration facilitates "spot on" buoyancy within minutes and results in a more streamline profile than a conventional gear configuration.
  • Sidemount scuba diving is a safe alternative option for gas management allowing the diver to always see their valves and first stages.
  • Sidemount scuba diving is a different approach to gear configuration which allows the diver to carry both of their tanks on all dives providing greater safety due to the volume of gas.
  • Sidemount can be used for all recreational, reef, wreck, and wall dives. Interested in technical diving? No need to purchase another set of equipment as your sidemount gear will carry you through these advanced levels of training.
  • Sidemount diving is becoming the preferred equipment configuration for extended range dives, cave dives, and deep exploration dives.
  • I am the only instructor providing Jeff Loflin's Sidemount training in Utah. I learned directly from Jeff and he is PADI's champion providing Sidemount training throughout the world. Sidemount is the perfect introductory course to the following technical diving courses: Tec 40, Tec 45, Tec 50 and the Tec Deep Programs.
