$139 for SSI Scuba Pool Certification and Open-Water Referral ($289 Value)

This deal includes SSI scuba pool certification with all classroom materials and administrative fees. Most equipment rental is also included, but students must supply their own masks, snorkels, fins, and boots. Alongside pool certification, students receive an open-water referral that can be used to attain full open-water certification elsewhere, such as on vacation in a Sasquatch-sized jacuzzi.
