Humans have long envied fish for their ability to breathe underwater and swim naked without everybody getting all weird about it. Finally achieve the former with this Groupon.

$149 for PADI Scuba Certification ($299 Value)

Certified instructors guide students through a PADI-express open-water course, which culminates in a PADI diving certification and grants students five pool dives, four open-water scuba dives, and a lifetime of free refresher lessons. This deal does not include the $138 tuition for the required online PADI course. Pupils may purchase all of their personal snorkeling equipment through the equipment shop.

Must be 14 or older. This Groupon does not include dive-quality mask, snorkel, fins, or boots. Groupon customers may purchase these items from Rick's Diving Locker at a discount.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

Rick's Diving Locker

PADI-certified instructors at Rick's Diving Locker teach students through a variety of underwater exploration techniques, opening up an entire world underneath the waves. After earning their PADI certifications, pupils can undertake more intensive coursework, such as wreck diving, underwater photography and search and recovery. Clients suit up with personal snorkeling gear and scuba suits, tanks, and flippers from brands such as SeaQuest, Diving Unlimited International, and Aqua Lung before setting out for undersea adventures or boudoir photo shoots. Chartered boat trips tour the local waters of Wreck Alley and the Los Coronado Islands, whereas faraway excursions to Beqa Lagoon in Fiji introduce travelers to 190 miles of coral, as well as colorful octopi and blue-ribbon eels.
