What You'll Get
Similar to lifting couch cushions, delving beneath the ocean's surface can uncover missing action figures, lost coins, and sneering moray eels. Learn how to discover with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a Try Scuba class at Aquatic Pleasures Dive Center in Kings Mountain (a $75 value). Classes are offered on Sunday, February 20, March 27, and May 15 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and Thursday, April 21 and June 16 and Friday, July 15 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Aquatic Pleasures is a full-service dive shop, offering equipment, charters, and classes for all levels of skilled or starter sea explorers. The Try Scuba course provides instruction on safety and basic scuba techniques, such as how to disentangle kraken from the air tank. In the three-hour session, students dive in an indoor heated pool with an SSI-certified instructor. Watery adventurers should bring a swimsuit, mask, and fins; all other equipment is provided. Completion of the course yields a Try Scuba certificate, a sense of personal pride, and an underwater chariot powered by sea horses. With the certificate in tow, aspiring merfolk can go on to take one of Aquatic Pleasures' more advanced classes, or simply put their newfound skills to use exploring underwater shopping malls.
