Diver Propulsion Vehicle

A Fun Gliding Experience!

Quick Details

Certified Diver

Experience the thrill as you glide through Avalon waters.

Diving Catalina offer a thrilling way for scuba divers to see a lot of underwater territory in a short amount of time. They scoot you through the water allowing you to glide over reefs, buzz around a large wreck or weave through a kelp forest. Whether making a shore or boat dive, a DPV is a great way to see more and have fun doing it.

If you’re at least 12 years old and a Open Water Diver or higher, you can enroll in the Diver Propulsion Vehicle course.

The Diving Catalina Diver Propulsion Vehicle course guides you in choosing the right DPV for you. You’ll make two dives and learn about:
• Maintaining your DPV.
• How to plan dives, including procedures for staying with your buddy.
• DPV-handling skills, such as making proper descents and ascents.
• Potential problems and ways to deal with them.
