That DPV’s are the most fun you can have underwater!
Our PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specialty course is an exceptional experience!
DPV’s are a thrilling way to cover a lot of ground underwater using less gas and physical effort, scooters propel you through the water without having to kick.
Whether you are diving from a boat or shore, a DPV is a great way to see more underwater and have more fun doing it.
Most dive stores use scooters that are not much better than pool toys, while Dan’s DPV courses are all conducted using long range expedition grade scooters that go faster, burn longer and are the best quality ride you’ll ever experience, while being the benchmark in reliability and design.
One of the most fun ways to spend time breathing underwater is to do it on an underwater scooter. Diver Propulsion Vehicles are fun, fast and makes any dive more exciting!
Learn about the different types and features of DPVs, their maintenance, transportation, use in dive planning and safety, and DPV diving procedures. You’ll also learn the basic techniques of using a DPV, problems, hazards and more as you complete two open water dives with one of our Halcyon or SUEX Diver Propulsion Vehicles.
We use only the highest quality diver propulsion vehicles, as the cheaper lower quality units are always leaking, breaking down or just don’t give you the ride you deserve. For this reason we have chosen DPV’s manufacturered by SUEX as our top choice for quality and reliable diver propulsion vehicles.
Ride in style with us and learn the right way to dive and the right way to scooter around your favourite dive sites.
Using a DPV can benefit you when diving large bodies of water like Sherkston Quarry, or take you to some off-shore wrecks like the Kinghorn in Rockport, or the Raleigh off of Sherkston Beach. They’re also a huge benefit when diving huge shipwrecks or sites like like the Empress of Ireland or the Roy A. Jodery where you want to get to specific points of the site quickly to focus your remaining dive time in that area.
Diver Propulsion vehicles are a tool to take you somewhere cool – be it quarries, mines, wrecks, reefs or caves. A DPV is a lot of fun and you won’t want to leave home without one, so rent or buy yours from us today and continue on in more advanced DPV courses like Technical DPV and Extreme Exposure DPV Diver.
Diver Propulsion Vehicles also cut back your air consumption giving you more bottom time to explore (within NDL).
