Diver Propulsion Specialty

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! 

DPV Certification: $249
Completed DPV Manual: $43
Upon completion of certification Scooters (DPV's) can be rented for $100/day or $600/week
