Diver Propulsion Vehicle (Scooters)

Diver Propulsion Vehicle (Scooters)

If scuba diving is like taking a scenic stroll around a park, a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) is like exploring a neighborhood on an (electric) bicycle.

DPVs, also called underwater scooters, allow you to see more, conserve air and get from one place to another faster – with a huge smile on your face.
