Course information

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 shorten surface swims, buzz around a large wreck or weave your way around submerged rocks. A DPV is a great way to see more and have fun doing it.
