Activity Highlights:

Welcome to the PSAI DPV Diving for the Open Water Environment course! This course is designed by the Professional Scuba Association International (PSAI) to offer divers like you an exciting opportunity to master the use of a Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV) in open water. With a focus on fun and exploration, this course is perfect for those looking to add a new dimension to their diving adventures.

What is a Diver Propulsion Vehicle?

A Diver Propulsion Vehicle (DPV), also known as an underwater scooter, is a device used by scuba divers to increase their range underwater. Basically, explore more while exerting less effort!

Key Details

The course encompasses a thorough understanding of DPV diving, including its history, practical water skills, DPV system configuration, theory and operation, as well as essential preparation and maintenance. You’ll gain a comprehensive insight into safe DPV operation and learn how to maximise your underwater experience.


Your adventure begins with an introduction to the DPV, including its operation and maintenance. Then, across three dives, you’ll practise various DPV manoeuvres. We ensure each session is packed with learning and excitement, allowing you to immerse in the experience fully.


Our course takes place in carefully selected open-water environments that are ideal for DPV diving. These locations offer safe and enjoyable conditions, perfect for practising new skills. We mostly dive on the UK Coast or Stoney Cove, Leicestershire. If you have a preferred location, then let us know in the comments section on the booking form.
