The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course is a great way to get around Gozo and see more underwater territory in a short amount of time. Dive sites are carefully chosen which will be based on the objective of the dive. Weather conditions, as well as exit, entry points of the dive site, are considered to safely enjoy the experience. You can explore more of a large reef or wreck because your scooter moves faster than you can dive. Your air lasts longer because you do not need to exert yourself, and against a current, the scooter is just great. The Diver Propulsion Vehicle is a great tool to help search for lost items which were dropped during the dive. The DPV provides fun and excitement, but it requires good buoyancy control.

Who should take this course?

This course is made for divers interested in discovering the underwater world in a different way. It gives you the opportunity to buzz around large wrecks, scoot around a reef top or explore drop-offs, all without using your fins. DPVs provide a lot of fun and can be used onshore or boat dives.
