Looking to go sidemount? Ocean Quest are experts in sidemount training!

What is Sidemount Diving? Sidemount diving is just as it sounds.  Instead of wearing cylinders your back, you wear them on your side.

Myth - Sidemount diving is only for Cave and Technical divers.  Sidemount diving is for all divers!  Many recreational divers around the world are enjoying the benefits of sidemount diving!

There are many benefits to sidemount configuration including:

- Better balance and trim
- More streamlined
- Added redundancy which makes diving safer
- Easy access to your valves while diving

- More available gas for longer dives (perfect for Nitrox diving!)
