Sidemount diving

Ever wondered what Sidemount Diving is all about?  Let Action Scuba be your guide!

Sidemount diving is a growing trend in scuba diving, and applies to both recreational and technical diving.  Put simply, it’s just a different way of configuring and carrying your tanks and breathing gases.

Sidemount diving allows you to carry 2 (or more) tanks, without placing additional strain on your back, as with doubles.

The benefits of sidemount diving:

  • Extended gas supply compared to single tank diving

  • Easy to carry on land

  • Reduced back strain and pressure

  • You can dive sidemount almost anywhere in the world – just bring your sidemount BCD and regs and use standard rental tanks.

  • Easy to manage and trouble shoot since you can see your equipment and first stages.

  • A new way to streamline and improve buoyancy with a tank on each side

  • Great for tight spaces like caves as you can move your tanks around as needed.
