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.”
