DPV Adventure Koh Tao

Take a DPV Adventure on Koh Tao!

Want to see more of the beautiful Koh Tao coral reefs and marine life with minimal effort? Then joining the team at DPV Adventure on Koh Tao is highly recommended!

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.

Guided tours include a full briefing, all necessary safety equipment, and full supervision, making a DPV Adventure on Koh Tao a suitable activity for anyone – regardless of whether you’re a confident swimmer or not. Those who are nervous in the water will find exploring effortless, and those who are into freediving will love how easy duck diving becomes when you’re powered up by a battery motor. It’s a serious game changer allowing you to see way more of the reef and spend more time under the surface than on a regular leg-powered breath-hold dive.

DPV Adventure Tour Logistics

You can book a DPV Adventure on Koh Tao any day at a time of your choosing between 8am and 4pm (availability allowing). DPV experiences usually last about 90 minutes, although the exact time is based on battery life. 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. However, there’s no bad spot for a DPV Adventure on Koh Tao because the island is home to many stunning beaches and bays all with impressive coral reefs and marine life starting within metres of the shoreline.

Transportation is not included, meaning customers need to meet their DPV Adventure guide at the snorkel location. The team are 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 own access 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:
