Scooter Dive (Underwater Propulsion Vehicles)


We are excited to exclusively offer our experienced certified divers a very special opportunity. Have you ever wanted to know what it feels like to glide effortlessly through the water like a seal or a shark? Get that feeling! Pretend to be “James Bond” with our DPV Scooter Dive!

One push of the accelerator and you’re hooked! Our scooters are top-of-the-line Tusa DPVs that can take you on an adventure like no other! Soar over the reefs to phenomenal dive sites like Sheraton Caverns, where you can then tie up the scooter and swim through the awesome cavern system.

Go where your legs alone can not take you. These state-of-the-art diver propulsion vehicles will pull or push a diver up to 4 miles per hour. Our TUSA SAV-7 “With Saddle” diver propulsion vehicles are shaped like a miniature torpedo and are nearly weightless in the water.

The comfortable handles and easy-to-operate trigger make these scooters effortless to operate. The advantages of diving with an underwater scooter are: less energy used, longer bottom times, more distance covered and they’re a ton of fun!

If you’re feeling really adventurous and would like to get your PADI Diver Propulsion Vehicle Specialty Certification, you’ll be able to dive “HANDS-FREE”, using the scooter saddle! This is about as close as a diver can get to swimming like our Hawaiian monk seal!

Experience what other divers only imagine. Scooter dive with Kauai Down Under!

Kauai Down Under also offers the PADI DPV Specialty Course where you can learn how to operate the scooters “hands-free” and move through the water just like a torpedo. Ask us how today!

Great Diving!
 
This was my first time diving with a scooter and it was a lot of fun! The first dive was at Koloa Landing without the scooter, where we saw many tropical endemic fish and tons of sea turtles. On the second dive, we used the scooter to get to the dive site Sheraton caverns, where we dove between the caverns and sea turtles. The scooter took some getting used to—I probably would not recommend it for a new diver. The dive instructor was thorough at the beginning of each dive, outlining which tropical fish/animals to expect to see.
I also did a night dive, where we saw 2 night octopus!! I would definitely recommend!

Turtles. Turtles Everywhere!!! :D
Back in Nov 2020 we did our first scooter dives! Jared, our fantastic guide, showed us how to use them and we were off! We were pleasantly surprised how easy they were to get used to and it really added a fun, unique twist to the dives. If this wasn't enough we say more turtles on this dive than ever before. Somewhere in the ~40ish range :D
