PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicles Speciality
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.
