Similar to tickling a bear without losing an arm, the art of breathing underwater requires focus and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one Discover Scuba intro class at The Great American Diving Company (a $25 value). Participants must sign a waiver and complete a medical questionnaire at either the Kirkwood location or the North 5th Street location in St. Charles. Classes will be held at the AquaCenter & Pro Development Center, located on Triad South Drive in St. Charles.

Learn the basics of breathing underwater in this Discover Scuba intro course, where students suit up in stylish underwater tuxedos and follow the instructional sonar echoes of the company's PADI-certified mermen and merwomen. A custom-built indoor pool is kept at a Caribbean-like 85 degrees and features anchor points on its bottom and sides for beginners to use as ascent lines. The skilled instructors will acquaint students with the aquatic dos and don'ts essential for mortal survival below sea level, including the most effective pressure points for taking down the shark pirates who lurk around sunken ships. Check the website's calendar to see which session best fits your schedule, then call to reserve a spot. Lessons include all necessary rental equipment, but pupils should be sure to bring a swimsuit and towel.

The Great American Diving Company

At The Great American Diving Company, swimmers and scuba enthusiasts plunge into a 10-foot-deep, custom-built training pool heated to a balmy 85 degrees. Under the guidance of PADI-certified instructors, students in Open Water Diver classes learn to breathe and explore beneath the surface, opening the doors to continue underwater education and obtain certification or finally put to rest a fear of really big puddles. Divers can gear up for their next expedition in the shop, and the staff also leads scuba trips to diving locales.
