PADI DPV Diver
Diver Propulsion Vehicles, or DPVs for short, offer a thrilling way to see a lot more underwater in the brief amount of time we get to see it. Soaring through the water with a propulsion vehicle is like flying through space – you have to experience it to believe it! It's a bit like a drift dive, without the drift. Want to see the whole wreck in one dive? A DPV may be the way to go. So whether making a shore dive or diving from a boat, a DPV is a great way to see more and have a great time doing it
How do I begin?
You start with the training materials. We will provide you with the PADI DPV Diver manual for you to read and answer the questions prior to the start of your training.

The PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle course guides you in choosing the right DPV for you. You'll make two dives and learn about:

- DPV-handling skills, such as making proper descents and ascents.
- Potential problems and ways to deal with them.
Get credit! The first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification – ask your instructor about earning credit.
You will watch the PADI DPV Diver video and your PADI instructor will talk to you about DPVs diving, then you will put into practice what you learn in a combination of skills in two open water training dives.
