DPV's offer a thrilling way for scuba divers to see a lot of underwater territory in a short amount of time. They scoot you through the water allowing you to glide over reefs, buzz around a large wreck or weave through a kelp forest. Whether making a shore dive or a boat dive, a DPV is a great way to see more and have fun doing it.
If you’re at least 12 years old and a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course.
With a little classroom instruction one afternoon followed by a 2 tank morning charter, you will learn to scoot around safely. Once you obtain the specialty you can rent the DPV and scoot around on your next charter!
