PADI DPV (Scooter) Diver

Dive like a super hero!


Adrenalin junkies, grab your gear – you are entering another world of diving!  The channels of the Maldives are a phenomenal place to get the most out of scooter diving, glide effortlessly through the water whilst others are kicking and using more air – you will feel like Harry Potter on his broomstick!

Diving with a scooter adds a whole new dimension to your dive experience, and lets you go places normally not possible. It allows you to venture into places too far for divers to go to, gives you the chance to see more of a dive site and stop whenever and wherever you want!

The course is a very practical one and lets you get comfortable with operating and maneuvering a scooter around. We aim to take you to experience one of Lhaviyani channels first hand. The currents can run fast here, attracting all sorts of visitors including countless grey reef sharks, squadrons of eagle rays, schooling jacks and barracudas and even silvertip sharks.
