First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

If you want the absolute best underwater scooter for divers money can buy in 2024, the Bonex Discovery RS is the number 1 pick. It is a big, powerful DPV that can carry your technical diving equipment and your buddy, as well. It has more than 6 hours of runtime(!!!) and is by far the most powerful underwater scooter we have ever used.

And man…this thing is fun! If you are a speed junkie or just want to never worry about falling behind your diving group, the Discovery RS will make sure you are ahead of the game. Bonex is known for its great build quality and the “Emergency Drive” feature is just one of the many aspects we love.
One thing: Let’s not talk about the price.

The Bonex Discovery RS is the most powerful underwater we could find and if money is not an obstacle, get this one and never look back!
