This festive season instructor Karl has been busy running the PADI Dive Propulsion (DPV) Specialty for Maurus.

DPVs aka Underwater Scooters or Sea Scooters are a great tool for scuba diving. Diving using a DPV you can cover more of the dive site and explore larger areas. Plus using the electric motor for propulsion rather than finning means you can minimise effort, maintaining a slower breathing rate and consersing your air supply to enjoy longer dives.
