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 to buy your kids an underwater scooter, the Yamaha Seal Seascooter is a solid choice. It comes in different colors that are easy to spot from the beach so you won’t lose it out of sight. The propellers are well-guarded and the DPV is super simple to handle. The speed is slow but that’s usually what parents want. Considering this, the Seascooter is perfect for families.

Yamaha probably needs no introduction as a brand and we like the build quality of this thing. Please note, however, it is not meant for scuba diving or carrying large adults at high speed. The price reflects this, however, and this is a steal!

The Yamaha Seal Seascooter is a great value purchase for families with kids and will be a lot of fun during your next trip to the beach!
