Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV)

If scuba diving is like taking a scenic stroll around a park, diving with a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) is like exploring a whole neighborhood on an electric bicycle!  Scuba diving with a DPV is some of the most fun you can have underwater.

During the SDI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course, you’ll be surprised how much area you can cover and how much you can see along the way– all with a huge smile on your face!
