A Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) offers a thrilling way to see a lot of underwater territory in a brief amount of time. They scoot you through the water without kicking. Whether making a shore dive or diving from a boat, a DPV is a great way to see more and have a blast doing it.

Why take the PADI DPV Specialty course?

They can make a dive more relaxing (by reducing / eliminating the need to kick) or exhilarating by covering a large area of ground quickly. Either way you’ll keep smiling long after your dive!.
