Certified divers at Ultimate Dive and Travel draw on years of experience to instill scuba-certification students with diving fundamentals and underwater savvy. Novices begin by tackling three academic courses, in which they glean diving basics through textbooks, DVD lessons, and in-depth interviews with retired manta rays. Instructors in pool sessions spend time familiarizing students with their equipment and scuba gear within the security and comfort of a swimming pool. Lake Pleasant awaits the final leg of training, where patrons earn their open-water certification by strapping on their regulators, tanks, and wetsuits to delve into nature's murky depths and harvest its bounty of naturally occurring dive rings.
Though Ultimate Dive and Travel sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
