Bladefish 1000

The Bladefish 1000, along with the Bladefish 2000 and Bladefish 3000 are all older Bladefish underwater scooter models. The 1000 and 2000 are rarely sold anymore, you can find where to purchase the 3000 at the link above. However, I would really recommend spending the extra few dollars on the highly improved Bladefish 5000 or Bladefish 5000 turbo (AKA Bladefish 7000). A full side by side comparison of Bladefish Underwater Scooters can be seen here. … [Read more...]

Bladefish 3000 DPV Sea Scooter

The Bladefish 3000 was from 2001, and one of Bladefish's earlier models. It is more suitable for more shallow dives or snorkeling, as it's only rated to 90 feet and has a 40 minute run time. It does go about 2.5mph. Bladefish has come a long way on their scooters with the the newer Bladefish 5000 and Bladefish 7000 models.  With extremely small difference in price from the Bladefish 3000 and newer models, I would highly recommend just getting a Bladefish 5000 or something newer.  A full … [Read more...]

Bladefish 7000 DPV Sea Scooter

The Bladefish 7000 DPV Sea Scooter (Bladefish 5000 Turbo) is the fastest, most robust of the Bladefish DPV sea scooters. The Bladefish 7000 is noticeably faster than the other Bladefish models. This Bladefish model also has the longest run time. It will run for a solid 90 minutes on full speed! The power of this DPV is impressive given its light weight and small size. I haven't found a scooter that compares to the Bladefish 7000 in terms of power to size ratio. That being said, even the best … [Read more...]

Bladefish 5000

The Bladefish 5000 DPV Sea Scooter literally looks like a box fan. I questioned the power of this thing when I first saw it. It actually packs a punch though! We did a beach dive with this thing, staying fairly close to shore just to be safe. We passed if off between three of us, for a total run time of just under an hour and a half (with it being used 80% of the time). The Bladefish 5000 is actually really fast. The Bladefish 5000 and other Bladefish DPV Scooters are the most compact and … [Read more...]

Tusa Sav 7 Evo

The Tusa Sav 7 Evo is my personal favorite DPV, hands down.  Why? It's very well built and reliable (not really any issues with the body leaking, as reported with many Sea Doo scooters)...but it has one feature that basically no other DPV has--the saddle.  The Tusa Sav-7 Evo saddle allows for natural, hands free riding.  The scooter rests between your legs and pushes you effortlessly, giving you both hands free.  You just have to reach down and slide the speed adjuster as necessary.  I am very … [Read more...]

Sea-Doo RS1 Underwater Seascooter (SD15001)

Sea Doo RS1 Underwater Seascooter (SD15001) If you are looking for a powerful DPV with durability to last many dives, this is definitely the Sea Doo scooter model to choose. The Sea-Doo RS1 seascooter is their highest-end model.  It is stronger, faster, and LIGHTER than any other model.  The lighter weight is due to the lithium ion battery, which provides more power at a fraction of the weight compared to sealed lead acid batteries (that most DPV’s use).   This is the ideal scooter to use for … [Read more...]

Sea Doo Explorer X Seascooter

Sea Doo Explorer X Sea-Doo Sea Scooter This scooter is noticeably more powerful and faster than the less expensive seadoo scooter models.  However, I do not think the advertised 3.3mph speed is accurate (most top speed ratings on DPVs aren’t too accurate).  The seadoo explorer is constructed of heavier duty plastic, and it feels more durable.  When walking back from a beach dive, this scooter slipped out of my hand and fell about 3 feet above the concrete, and I was only left with a small … [Read more...]
