BlackTip Travel DPV
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 8 kg (without batteries), the BlackTip Travel combines the best of powerful scooter performance with lower cost and travel-friendly design. It is the smallest and lightest BlackTip model.
If your diving takes you deeper than 100 metres, then you can easily upgrade your BlackTip Travel with the Tech Tube Kit which is rated for 120 metres. Alternatively, you can 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.
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. You will need to adjust ballast to make your DPV neutral, positive, or negative depending on your preferences and battery selection. The BlackTip Travel can be adjusted to either float trim or neutral, but not both.
If you purchase our BlackTip Travel 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. We also provide and install a front bolt snap kit at no extra cost.
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 Travel 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.
