Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Rinse yourself off with this Groupon.

Groupons only valid for certified divers. Trips depart daily at 7:30 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. Guides pick up divers from a hotel in Waikiki, before traveling to Hawaii Kai Harbor. From here, boats take divers out onto the ocean, where they’ll strap on wetsuits, masks, snorkels, fins, and air tanks. They’ll then plunge into the water and descend into the ocean's depths. Once in this aquatic playland, divers might spot tropical fish, colorful coral, and sea turtles. They can also swim past scenic underwater terrain such as the Corsair Plane Wreck, Fantasy Reef, and Koko Crater. The approximately three-hour scuba adventure includes two air tanks, enough for two separate dives.
Aaron's Dive Shop
A hidden world resides off Honolulu's coast. Beneath the water's surface, endangered sea turtles weave between schools of tropical fish, and vibrant coral covers the ocean's original hardwood floors. This is the destination for Aaron's Dive Shop's scuba exhibitions. A PADI five-star IDC center, Aaron's trains divers with a PADI curriculum that offers open-water certification programs.
Under the leadership of the owner, Jack, and the course director, Larry, Aaron's Dive Shop's PADI instructors guide their students through a natural progression of coursework. They start with time in the classroom, move on to train within confined swimming pools, and then eventually dive out in the Pacific Ocean. The dive masters can also develop more nuanced techniques such as night diving, wreck diving, and underwater photography. And when they're not underwater, the staff members can be found at their dive shop, which stocks gear from brands such as Aqualung and Oceanic.
