This can be used to becoming a PADI MASTER SCUBA DIVER
DPVs 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.

What do I need?
Personal dive gear (Full Kit) plus 2x tanks for the two open water dives. Don't worry if you don't have this yet as you can hire it for $100, but for comfort, we recommend you have your own. Speak to us first before purchasing to be sure the equipment is appropriate. If you have your own DPV unit this needs to be checked before by the instructor. If you are hiring please make sure this is organised before the course.
Cost includes all training and reference materials, 2x open water dives with an Auckland Scuba Instructor.
