Skillfully operating a diver propulsion vehicle (DPV) is a skill every advanced diver should master.

These “scooters,” as they’re commonly known, are primarily used to transport scuba divers at double or triple their normal speed underwater.

Requiring little effort, DPV divers also use less energy, save air, and are able to survey wider sections of the reef. When divers add Enriched Air Nitrox to the mix, they’re often able to double their bottom time.

P.S. They’re also good for James Bond-style getaways
