Embark on a new dimension of underwater exploration with our PADI Sidemount Specialty course. At Buddha View Dive Centre, we are thrilled to introduce you to the fascinating world of sidemount diving, offering an immersive experience that enhances your underwater skills and opens up new possibilities for exploration.

The PADI Sidemount Specialty course is designed for divers looking to broaden their horizons and optimize their diving experience. Sidemount diving involves wearing the scuba cylinders on the sides of your body rather than on your back. This configuration not only offers increased flexibility and streamlining but also provides a unique perspective, allowing you to maneuver effortlessly through the underwater realm.
