Sidemount Diving Courses

Sidemount Diving is a ground-breaking modern approach for streamlined, convenient & safe diving, at both recreational and technical levels.  It is time that you learned more about the fastest-growing revolution in scuba diving…

As a pioneer of sidemount diving in SE Asia, with a decade of exclusive sidemount experience, I offer unparalleled instructor experience in sidemount diving from beginner to advanced trimix and overhead environment levels.

There are FOUR primary training options;
