DPVs which are also known as underwater scooters are the way to go if you ever find finning tedious. Imagine moving through a dive site with perpetual strong currents and seeing other divers struggling to fin while you are on your DPV in the blue. Using a DPV takes skill as students are taught how to fully manoeuvre the dive propulsion vehicle safely and efficiently.

The DPVs on board MV DiveRACE Class E are good quality powerful machines that are used mainly by technical divers. It is a tow style DPV and will require students to use a harness strap. This course structure will be centred around the particular brand and model of the DPV (SEUX XJOY7) we are using. Small class size also means that the instructor can spend more time on the students so that good diving habits with the DPVs are developed.
