DPVs is a great way to maximize your exploration of the underwater world in a limited amount of time.

At Downbelow’s PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya Island in Kota Kinabalu, we’ll introduce you to scooting through the water without kicking with the assistance of the very popular Dive Propulsion Vehicle.

The DPV Speciality Course will teach you the ins and outs of using the Diver Propulsion Vehicle, the special considerations and operating procedures.

Whether you’re making a shore dive or diving from a boat, a DPV is a great way to see more and have a blast doing it.

All our courses take place at our on Gaya Island, so you are not stuck in the classroom or boat for the day – learn in Paradise!

This scuba diving course is one of PADI’s most popular specialties.

DPVs are very handy when wreck diving, especially the large, WWII Usukan Bay Wrecks that Downbelow likes to visit. The Diver Propulsion Vehicle Speciality Course in Kota Kinabalu will allow you to tour more of the wreck, while using less air.

It’s also a great idea to combine the Dive Propulsion Vehicle Speciality Course with the Wreck Diver Speciality while you’re at it.

Whether you’re into underwater photography or macro diving, at home or on holiday the PADI Enriched Air Diver course helps you get more out of diving by giving you more time underwater.

Certification counts toward the Master Scuba Diver rating.
