DPV Adventure

DPV Adventure

Want to see more of the beautiful Koh Tao coral reefs and marine life with minimal effort? then we highly recommend becoming a part of the DPV Adventure team on Koh Tao!

What’s a DPV, you ask? DPV stands for Diver Propulsion Vehicle. It’s a small, hand-held, battery-powered device that allows you to cruise around the reef with ease – you don’t even need to kick! These particular DVPs are compact, lightweight, and have three different speed settings allowing you to explore at whatever pace you choose.

What To Expect on DPV Adventure

Guided tours include a full briefing, all necessary safety equipment, and full supervision, making a DPV Adventure on Koh Tao a suitable activity for everyone. People who feel uneasy in the water will discover that exploration becomes effortless. Enthusiasts of freediving will appreciate the enhanced ease of duck diving powered by a battery motor. It’s a significant game-changing tool that enables you to explore a much larger portion of the reef. You can extend your time underwater compared to a typical breath-hold dive powered by legs.

Trip Details

You can book a DPV Adventure on Koh Tao any day at a time of your choosing between 8 am and 4 pm (availability allowing). The DPV tour typically lasts for approximately 90 minutes, with the precise duration contingent on the battery’s lifespan. You’ll get a full briefing on the equipment and how it works, and training is tailored on every trip according to customer confidence, experience, and skill level.

The exact location may vary depending on weather conditions, customer preference, or guide recommendation. The team makes a concerted effort to match DPV Adventure locations with customer experience levels. There isn’t a poor location for embarking on a DPV Adventure on Koh Tao, as the island boasts numerous breathtaking beaches and bays, each adorned with impressive coral reefs and marine life just a few meters from the shore.

Taxi service is not included, meaning customers need to meet their DPV Adventure guide at the snorkel location. The team is happy to advise on the best places for easy access, and can often organise snorkel meet-ups near customer accommodation for those who haven’t opted for scooter rental on Koh Tao.  Please note customers must pay for their access fee at any beaches with an entry fee.


What to Bring

The DPV Adventure team will provide all of the essential equipment. However, we recommend you bring the following items:

  • Swimwear
  • A towel
  • Sunscreen
  • A small bag for your cash, phone, camera, etc
