$39 for a Three-Hour Intro to Scuba Class ($80 Value)

With a swimsuit and towel brought from home, students suit up with provided equipment during the Intro to Scuba class. PADI-certified instructors teach novices how to set up a scuba unit, put on the gear, breathe underwater, and recover their air supply, all in the comfort of a heated pool. This class counts as completion of the first-class module and confined-water dive for Open Water Diver certification.

Dolphin Scuba Center & Swim School

Mike Johnson started at Dolphin Scuba Center & Swim School as an entry-level staffer but soon turned his lifelong passion for water into a promising career. Quickly, he became the manager and, at the tender age of 21, the owner of the store—a water-exploration supplier originally founded as a swim school almost 40 years ago.

Today, the PADI five-star facility boasts one of the largest selections of underwater gear in North America, including top brands of scuba, swimming, and snorkeling equipment. Johnson and his team still offer private, one-on-one swimming lessons with certified lifeguard instructors but have branched out into scuba classes. Introductory courses work their way up to professional-level training, all within a pool heated to 92 degrees—the exact temperature of the president’s nightly bath. Students can even test out their newfound skills during scuba-diving trips to the likes of Mexico, the Philippines, and Fiji.
