IANTD Sidemount Courses

All the courses will be taken in Sidemount configuration. We have been diving in this configuration since 2007 and continue to evolve in the techniques and we like to share that knowledge during our students’ learning.

We highly recommend that you get your own sidemount gear. We prefer the X-deep Stealth gear which we dive and sell and we can get one ready to go for you. If you want to use our rental equipment, just reserve it in advance.

To participate in any IANTD program using sidemount equipment , students that have never used it before will need to complete the Essentials of Sidemount course with a minimum of 2 training days for the course , Cost will be $200 USD per day.
