What is a DPV

Diver Propulsion Vehicles, also known as “underwater scooters,” are motorized, battery-powered diving equipment that allows you to cover a lot more of underwater territory in a short time. Most of the time, they have been used by commercial divers and technical divers and the fast and fun factor means, that they are now increasingly popular amongst recreational divers, too. During a single DPV dive, you’ll have the opportunity to see more marine life, reefs, and wrecks. Other benefits of using DPV’s, is that you have better air consumption as you are not using your fins. 


The DPV Specialty

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle specialty course is divided into 2 open water dives and includes knowledge reviews. Learning about maintaining your DPV, how to plan your dives while using your DPV, how to make proper descents and ascents, ponytail problems that may occur while diving with your DPV.

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle specialty course is your next course while visiting us on your diving holiday.

For now, stay safe and let’s hope we can start planning our next diving holiday as soon as possible, we can’t wait to start diving again and teach you your PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle specialty course.

If you want to learn more about DPV’s why not consider doing your PADI DPV Specialty with us.


My Experience

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle specialty course is one of my favourite courses and it’s a lot of fun. Not long ago I enrolled on the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course myself. My instructor was Sarah Shaw from Divewise, Malta (a sister company of New Dimension Scuba), teaching me how to set up the DPV, how to steer the DPV underwater, and all about safety and acting in emergencies
