Guided Dives on the second largest reef in the world – Experience the thrill of diving with bull sharks – Day trips to cozumel from Playa del Carmen – Express trips to Cozumel. We also offer technical ocean diving
Unique in the world: discover cavern diving in the Cenotes – Dive Cenotes near Tulum and near Playa del Carmen – Cenotes in Puerto Morelos for Advanced divers – Special private and personnalized trips to the Cenotes of Yucatan
A first approach to technical diving and the use of mixtures. And for those already Nitrox certified diver it is the opportunity to thoroughly review the basic principles and fundamental laws of physics used in diving.
You will learn the physics and physiology for diving with gas mixtures containing more than 40 % oxygen. This is the opportunity to further extend of your dive time without going into decompression limits.
The Razor Side Mount Course allows you to experience the freedom and flexibility of diving Side Mount at its best.
The Razor Side Mount System was designed by expert divers and explorers Steve Bogaerts and HP Hartmann.
Many years of experience and many hours of side mount cave diving and exploration have led to the development of the Razor Side Mount System. And along with it appeared the necessity of developping a course program to be taught by experienced instructors comitted to high quality standards.
During the course you will learn proper adjustment of the harness, cylinder configuration, regulator configuration, proper weighting and weight distribution for the best trim, regulator switches with one hand, different propulsion techniques, equipment failures handling (bungee, bolt snap, tank clamps, bat wing, regulators, etc.) as well as other general sidemount skills adapted to the use of the Razor system.
Train with the best using years of experience shared with you through the Razor Side Mount course
But be aware… Once you go Side Mount, you never go back!!
Certified Advanced Open Water Diver
25 logged dives beyond training dives
Course has to be in your own Razor Side Mount System complete as some the skills are specific to the equipment
Why Razor? and why a Razor Side Mount course?
When Steve Bogaerts and HP Hartmann come together to design from scratch a full set of gears and make it evolve to what it is today you can expect something really efficient and of high quality! And it really is!
Many years of experience and many hours of Side Mount Cave diving have led to the Razor Side Mount System and further on to the Razor Side Mount Course program.
Proper weighting, weight distribution for the best trim
Regulator switches with two hands and one hand
Different propulsion techniques
Equipement failures (bungee, bolt snap, tank clamps, wing, regulator…)
Out of Air procedures
Why is the Razor Side Mount Course a bit longer than other Side Mount courses?
Because this is how long it takes to get a new side mount diver to master the skills the way they will be used your entire diver career and your Razor harness and wing will take all those steps with you.
Side Mount diving looks incredibly easy and confortable and yes it is! Side Mount configuration has many advantages when learned and configured properly.
It originates from cavers in the UK in need of a configuration that facilitates penetration of tight sections of cave. Additionally it allows easy access to the valves, provides easy and reliable gas redundancy, and tanks can be easily removed if needed. These benefits for diving in confined spaces.
Advantages of Side Mount Diving
Ideal for cave diving
Very safe and confortable for open water diving.
So make sure you get the right training from the start amd build up on the skills.
And make sure you practice, practice and practice some more!
What you will learn during the Side Mount diving course:
Psychological considerations of technical diving
Equipment choice and configuration (Tank, Regulators, harness…)
Communication (light and hand signals)
Problem solving in a sidemount configuration (Air sharing…)
The basic course for tec divers wishing to learn a new configuration. If you wish a more in depth course in a Razor harness, with solid skills to build upon during cave diving or more advanced technical courses.
