Try Scuba with DPV

by SSI
Type: Training

The SSI Try Scuba program is your introduction to the underwater world with the added bonus of flying around the pool on an awesome DPV. The Diver Propulsion vehicle is a scooter that tows a diver at speed underwater. This entry-level program gives you the opportunity to experience the underwater world, in a confined water setting, without committing to a longer certification program. You will earn the SSI Try Scuba recognition rating. 

  • Minimum Age: 8
  • Certification Prerequisites: None
  • Academic Sessions: Online training
  • Pool/Confined Water Sessions: 1
  • Maximum Training Depth: 5 meters / 15 feet 
  • Duration: 2 Hours

The session will start with a 15 minute briefing from one of our experienced instructors and then a run down of how the equipment works and is fitted, including the DPV. Next you and your instructor will select a mask, fins and be fitted into your own high quality total diving system. Leaning to breathe with your face in the water and fin on the surface quickly turns into almost 2 hours of fun underwater, zooming around the pool, playing games and learning new skills. We have a maximum ratio of 2:1 with instructors to ensure you have the best possible experience.

After a full debriefing and discussion about how to take your scuba to the next level. Every student is issued with a certificate of completion and a digital recognition rating (via MySSI App). Photos of each session will be uploaded to the Divemaster Scuba Facebook
