For divers, underwater vehicles (DPVs) offer an exciting way to explore a large area in no time.

They transport you through the water allowing you to glide over reefs, have fun around a wreck or zigzag through a kelp forest.

Whether you dive from shore or from a boat, a DPV is a fantastic way to explore and have more fun.

Se hai 12 anni o più e sei almeno un PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver, ti puoi iscrivere al corso PADI DIver Propulsion Vehicle.
