First Impression

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

After quite a few dives with the Divex BlackTip Travel, we think it might have the best value of all scuba diving DPVs on our list. It looks great, has a great depth rating of 300ft / 100m, is durable in any environment, and really easy to handle. While it won’t replace the more expensive tech diving scooters anytime soon, it also only costs 20% of those.

We like the safestart feature that comes standard and prevents accidental triggers of the motor when you least want it, like at narrow cave intersections or close to the boat. It’s great for beginners but don’t be fooled, the BlackTip DPV still requires that you learn it!

The Divex Blacktip Travel is a robustversatile, and user-friendly underwater scooter for scuba divers. It’s not just for technical divers but also an excellent choice for anyone looking to expand their diving experience with a reliable and affordable DPV.
