SSI XR Sidemount Diving Course

The line between recreational & technical diving is sometimes difficult to determine. Diver descending along a coral wall in clear, warm water will not find a warning sign painted at 40 meters. Just as Recreational Divers have crossed the boundary into ¨Tech¨, it is often the case that technical diving conditions exist within recreational limits. A dive to 36 meters on a deteriorating wreck in low visibility, cold water and heavy current certainly tests the classic defenition of a receational dive!

The SSI XR Programs have been designed to adress two distinct objectives. First, they will provide all divers with the Knowledge, Skills, Equipment Familiarity and Experience to minimize risk, increase confidence and have more fun in challenging XR conditions. Second, they will provide a solid foundation for those divers who wish to participate in more advanced technical training and further extend their range underwater.
