BlackTip Tech Package +
High-performance scootering without breaking the bank or your back! Introducing the BlackTip underwater scooter, from the makers of the legendary Cuda and CudaX. Silent, compact and lightweight, the BlackTip scooter series consists of three models: the ultralight Travel, the trimmable Tech, and the maxed-out Exploration.
Weighing just 10.5 kg (without batteries), the BlackTip Tech is designed for demanding technical dives to 120 metres. It features a fully trimmable design and comes with an integral freshwater/saltwater trim plate.
If your diving also takes you into caves, then you can easily configure your BlackTip for cave diving with the Exploration Tube Kit which doubles the battery compartments.

Our DPVs are non-returnable items. We recommend you visit the Dive Xtras website, read the User Manual, and do your research before making a purchase. XR Scuba is an authorised Dive Xtras dealer and we are happy to answer your questions. Batteries and chargers are not covered by manufacturer warranty.
Note 1: Your BlackTip features an innovative design which accepts a variety of battery capacities. However, each battery capacity affects your DPV’s buoyancy differently. The BlackTip Tech can be adjusted to either float trim or neutral, or both. When you purchase our BlackTip Tech Package +, we configure your unit with our recommended battery selection. We also fine-tune the internal ballast to give your DPV neutral buoyancy for UAE saltwater diving.
Note 2: Your BlackTip is a powerful DPV and demands respect. If you are not an experienced DPV diver, then XR Scuba recommends you initially limit yourself to shallow dives with good visibility to avoid injury. Taking a DPV training course is ideal, which is why our BlackTip Tech Package + incorporates a discounted PADI® DPV Diver Course. We also include a 90-minute orientation workshop which gives you a hands-on introduction to your BlackTip’s exciting features, set-up, use, and post-dive care.
Note 3: The BlackTip Tech Package + does not ship. Once you have placed your order, you will receive your PADI e-Learning code. Once you have completed the e-Learning, we will contact you to schedule your Orientation Workshop and DPV Diver Course training (1 day, Dibba). You will receive your BlackTip DPV on that day.
