Choose from Three Options

  • $15 for a three-hour Discover Scuba course (a $35 value)
  • $150 for a PADI beginner diver course without equipment (a $445 value)
  • $425 for a PADI beginner diver course with all necessary equipment included (a $770 value)<p>

Discover Scuba courses allow first-timers to take test dives in pool-like conditions under the safe supervision of PADI professionals. PADI beginner’s courses build upon classroom and pool training, moving from contained water dives and skill-development sessions to open-water dives that earn students their PADI open-water-certification cards.

Whichever option is chosen, most of the bulkier gear is provided by the dive center. However, each PADI student is expected to have his or her own mask, snorkel, fins, gloves, surface signal, cutting tool, and timing device. For the beginner lacking all of these, the third option comes with a complete equipment package (a $325 value) from Aquatic Adventures; Groupon buyers redeeming the equipment-less package must have their personal flippers approved by the saftey-conscious professionals running the course. Students must also provide their own transportation to and from dive sites, dive-site admission fees, tank fills, and any overnight accommodations necessary when visiting the training dive sites necessary for certification.<p>

Aquatic Adventures of Michigan

Aquatic Adventures of Michigan is the joint venture of independent dive instructors Kim D. Parker and Tom Rhoad, who, after years of working with other dive shops, yearned for a place where they could stretch their fins, teach scuba their own way, and bellow sea shanties as loudly as they liked. Today, their PADI Five Star IDC facility is fast approaching its 10-year anniversary, and has grown beyond basic PADI training programs to incorporate everything from underwater digital photography to lessons in deep diving, wreck diving, and night diving. The shop's instructors are fully certified in first aid and emergency oxygen use, and provide factory-authorized service to big-name companies such as Poseidon, Genesis Scuba, and Dive Rite.

Great afternoon activity. They supply every thing you need. Staff is amazing. The have a cool store with all you need to dive or snorkel. Quite a bit of paperwork but they email you and you can do it at home. Highly recommend. Great way to get a feel for the sport without the expense. Training is enough for any cruise diving or Florida diving excursions.

If you are even curious about scuba diving, I would contact Aquatic Adventures of Michigan and take a Discover Scuba class. I took that class just to make sure that I would like scuba. Now I am hooked. I took the Open Water Certification class and had so much fun that I am completing my Advanced Open Water Certification class. The staff is Fabulous :) I would HIGHLY recommend Aquatic Adventures of Michigan!
