Diver Propulsion Vehicle
Propel your way through the water and glide over reefs, buzz around a large wreck or weave through a kelp forest. You must be at least 12 years old and a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver or higher.
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 12 years old and a PADI (Junior) 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.
Duration & Price
It is €180 per person for the course, all equipment rentals, transport to and from Dawn Diving centre to dive site and the certification. It takes 1 day 2 dives to complete the course.
Of course, you’ll need a DPV along with your basic scuba equipment. If you have your own DPV, your instructor will have you complete all your training using it. Ask your PADI Instructor or local dive center staff which DPVs are available, and what other additional equipment you may need for your scuba diving exploration with a DPV.
The day starts at 8 AM at the Dive Shop and normally you will be back to the dive school about 2:30 - 3 PM each day.
