Sidemount Course

Your first step towards the technical world

Expand your skills and prepare yourself for future tec courses. Sindmount will open a whole new level of the underground world for you to explore.


This qualification allows you to dive with true redundancy and is often the 1st course on your way towards cave diving with us.


We feel that Sidemount is the best set-up for the unique geography of Mexico’s caves, it unlocks many different dive sites that can be too small for backmount to fit through comfortably.


Sidemount diving uses two independent tanks which allows for true gas redundancy. This can reduce stress if one tank malfunctions underwater and allow easy access to fix the problem in water.


When should I do my Sidemount Course?

Have you already done some of our cenote tours and are already dreaming of venturing deeper?  Well this is your 1st step!


Start learning now so you can see the rest of the caverns while practising in your new setup.

Course structure

The Sidemount course is a minimum of 4 days* and is comprised of theory sessions, confined water skills and dives to provide a solid foundation in your new setup. For technical courses we structure it around your needs, we learn at the pace you need to master the skills, therefore some courses may take longer than 4 days.


This course is perfect to combine with the Cavern Diver Course.


*when combined with other cave courses it may take fewer days
