Diver Propulsion Vehicle

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course guides you in choosing the right DPV for you. You’ll make two dives and learn about:

  • Maintaining your Diver Propulsion Vehicle.
  • How to plan dives, including procedures for staying with your buddy.
  • DPV-handling skills, such as making proper descents and ascents.
  • Potential problems and ways to deal with them.

Diver Propulsion Vehicles 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 or boat dive, a DPV is a great way to see more and have fun doing it. Who doesn’t want to feel like James Bond? …
