Diver Propulsion Vehicle

dpvDiver Propulsion Vehicles (DPVs) offer a great 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.

What will I learn?

  • Maintaining your DPV.
  • 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.

Prerequisites
Be certified as a PADI Open Water Diver, Junior Open Water Diver or have a qualifying certification from another training organisation.

How many dives do I have to do?
The course consists of two dives. If you have done the DPV dive as part of the Adventures in Diving program that dive may count as the first dive of this course.
