diver, do not miss this dive.
Travel over a mile of underwater terrain. The use of
Dacor Sea Scooters will let you fly through canyons, off
of under water cliffs, while doing loops around fish.
This dive is a maxium of four and

dive locations around Maui and allows you to
see the whole place in one dive. SCOOTERS

them on the bottom while swimming around

This is a beach entry dive.
A diver propulsion vehicle (DPV,
also known as an underwater propulsion
vehicle or underwater scooter) is
an item of
diving equipment used by
rebreather divers to increase range
underwater. Range is restricted by the
breathing gas that can be carried, the
rate at which that breathing gas is consumed
under exertion, and the time limits imposed
dive tables to avoid
decompression sickness. DPV's can have
military application; an example is the
Diver Propulsion Device (DPD) from STIDD
Systems in the US.
A DPV usually consists of a
electric motor, which drives a
propeller. The design must ensure that:
the propeller is caged so that it cannot
harm the diver,
diving equipment or marine life; the
vehicle cannot be accidentally started or
run away from the diver; and it remains
buoyant under all conditions.
DPVs are useful for long journeys at
constant depth where navigation is easy.
Typical uses include
cave diving and
technical diving where the vehicles help
move bulky equipment and make better use of
the limited underwater time imposed by the
decompression requirements of
recreational divers DPVs are not useful.
Buoyancy control is vital for diver
safety: The DPV has the potential to make
buoyancy control difficult and cause
barotrauma if the diver ascends or
descends under power. Visibility of less
than 5 metres makes navigating a DPV
difficult. Also, many forms of smaller
marine life are very well
camouflaged or hide well and are only
seen by divers who move very slowly and are
