World famous for wall diving, the Bahamas is a destination where a DPV can take your underwater experience to exciting new places. With a wide variety of wrecks and other attractions in the region, including caverns and blue holes, it’s not uncommon to reach multiple dive sites on a single tank — an adventure typically impossible without machine assistance.
“DPVS give our divers the opportunity to cover large — and in some cases, unexplored — areas,” says Liz Parkinson of Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas. “We have created a program called Wall Flying, where all divers have their own DPV, and it is not uncommon to be able to cover several wrecks and long stretches of our walls on a single dive.”
Flying along the wall is an adrenaline rush, but when a shark shows up, you’ll be in hyperdrive.
“As you fly over the reef or around a wreck you’ll see things — and animals — from a different angle,” Parkinson says. “It’s an exciting dimension to the diving world that everyone should explore.”
