UWE and Ocean Quest Dive centre are excited to announce we have two new graduates from the PADI Sidemount Divers course.  Brian and Mariusz joined the course on the 24th of Sept.  They worked hard in the classroom session, learning how to properly rig their bottles, and regs, as well how to do proper valve drills and S-Drills in order to stay safe while diving.

We headed off to a 2.5 hour pool session, where we put all the divers through their paces to make sure they could perform all of their skills, while in a controlled environment.  The PADI Sidemount Divers course goes in depth with various skills, but Ocean Quest takes it a step further ensuring good propulsion techniques, and buoyancy.  We also introduced them to proper gas management, and Rock bottom calculations.

During the ocean phase, Brian and Mariusz discovered that the Sidemount Rig is even easier to dive in the ocean then pool.  We had a couple of problems with proper valve drills, but we were able to clean things up and in the end we were all successful.  Well done guys for completing the PADI Sidemount Divers course!
