Scuba diving is the only way left to find hidden treasure, befriend a nautical skeleton, or strap a huge tank to yourself. Explore the possibilities with today's Groupon to Village Divers. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get a one-hour intro to scuba-diving lesson (a $120 value). All necessary gear is provided.
  • For $125, you get part one of the Open Water certification training course (a $250 value). Instructors will provide the following equipment:
    • Tanks
    • Weight belts
    • BCs
    • Regulators

The aquatic captains at Village Divers set nautical novices on the path toward certification with introductory scuba-diving classes. During the one-hour intro to scuba class, students shimmy into the provided necessary equipment before diving into chlorine-purified depths to get flippers-on knowledge of the finer points of gear, diving techniques, and proper gill development. Meanwhile, students seeking their Open Water certification can cartwheel into classrooms to learn basic scuba theory before dramatically bursting though sky lights, landing in the swimming pool to take in lessons about equipment assemblage and emergency tactics. Students in the Open Water courses must purchase their own books, wetsuits, masks, snorkels, and fins (not covered in this Groupon).

Village Divers

The scuba pros at Village Divers get students off land and into the water with a catalogue of scuba classes and certifications and a cache of rental equipment. Their Open Water Diver scuba-certification course transforms guppies into scuba-certified guppies with classroom and onsite pool training. They can coordinate diving events for full Open Water certification, or they can issue referrals for students to complete their certification at another location. The instructors also delve further into the underwater arts with advanced courses in technical diving, underwater photography, and wreck diving—often taking trips out to the sunken ships of Wreck Alley and the abandoned castles of local fishbowls.
