Biologists estimate that water makes up 65% of the human body, 71% of the planet's surface, and 0% of the R & B group Earth, Wind & Fire. Conquer the planet’s most prevalent liquid with today’s Groupon: for $179, you get an Open Water Scuba Diver class from Scuba Haven (a $389 value).

Scuba Haven’s seasoned instructors help train budding underwater explorers during Open Water Scuba Diver classes. Over the course of about three weekends, students learn scuba-diving fundamentals in a classroom and at the bottom of a pool, free from the oceanic dangers and overly critical dolphins they aren't yet prepared to face. Staff members then put students’ newfound knowledge to the test and provide real snorkeling experience during springtime excursions, including two final dives from a boat in the gulf.

Upon successful completion, students receive a scuba certification card, which grants holders access to equipment rentals and exclusive admittance to starfish speakeasies at the bottom of the sea. Scuba Haven provides essential tools such as air tanks, regulators, and wetsuits, while customers bring their own personal gear, including masks, snorkels, and jet-powered fins. As an added perk, Groupon buyers can enjoy a 10% discount off of equipment from the Scuba Haven store. Classes meet on Saturdays and Sundays, but students should call ahead to schedule a specific class time.
