The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) Diver Adventure Dive enables students to dive further from shore than ever before. Also known as an underwater scooter, this vehicle propels divers through the water faster and without the need to kick. Go farther – this speciality course will teach you how to maintain your DPV; 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.
