Travel Faster

Underwater scooters are both practical – for a given dive duration, you see a wider area because you travel faster and cover more ground – and it’s fun – the DPV does much of the work for you; it reduces your exertion and air consumption. In fact, the better DPVs perform the more fun they are and the more useful they are. The only downside to DPVs is that once you start using them, you’ll want to have one all the time! Keeping that thought, the philosophy of this course is to focus on extending the adventure – going further, staying longer, and seeing more – on all your dives with an underwater propulsion vehicle. Thus, the goal of this course is to teach student divers a systematic, methodical approach to enjoying a DPV. Student divers will develop the techniques involved in diving with a DPV within recreational limits and while avoiding disturbing delicate marine life.
