DPVs offer a thrilling 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.

If you’re at least 15 years old and a PADI Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course.

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course guides you in choosing the right DPV for you. You’ll make two dives and learn about:

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.

We are offering this Specialty Course as a PRIVATE course. Cost is $350 for course, materials, and DPV rental.
Course offered on August 3, August 4, September 7, September 8.

As this is a private course times are limited so reserve your spot today! Course takes about half a day so spots are going fast.
