Somewhere far below sea level, the most fashionable critters in the subsurface world are gracefully strutting their stuff in form-fitting wetsuits with foot-flattering flippers. Grace the coveted underwater runways of exploration with today’s Groupon to Aquatic Ventures. Choose from the following options:

  • For $69, you get a Discovery Dive course (a $150 value).
  • For $159, you get an Open Water Certification course (a $350 value).
  • For $159, you get an Advanced Open Water Diver Certification course (a $350 value).

At Aquatic Ventures, budding underwater explorers learn the basics and advanced tactics of scuba during hands-on courses delivered in pools and the Atlantic Ocean. The one-day Discovery Dive course commences with a one-hour lecture and two hours of practice in pool environment free of ocean hazards such as schools of fish and predatory yellow submarines. Students then head to the sun-soaked beaches of the Atlantic to breach its waves, mount a reef, and take a brief sojourn under waters ripe with possibility. Though students don’t earn deep-sea-diving certification with this course, they will be able to engage in future dives with Aquatic Ventures. Open Water courses—often at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday—utilize cramming sessions and in-water training to supplement students with the diving skills necessary to become certified divers. Advanced Open Water Diver Certification courses unlock a treasure trove of knowledge for already-certified students, providing them with such valuable skills as advanced-rescue techniques, stress management, and how to deliver a cheesy pick-up line in dolphin sonar.

Like medical schools and vocational schools for ninjas, Aquatic Ventures provides the essential gear for the skills they teach. The Discovery Diver and Open Water Certification courses outfit participants’ feet with flippers, heads with masks, and bodies with regulators.

The instructors were absolutely amazing! Michelle and Kary were very informative and easy to learn from. I would definitely recommend this business to get certified. My husband and I had a great time and learned a lot in the process!

The instructors Michelle and Kary were both amazing! I would recommend this dive shop to anyone and everyone. They took the time to answer any questions we had throughout the course, and made sure we felt comfortable with all of the required skills. I wasn't sure I would be able to equalize, but I'm happy to say that with their help, it was not a problem. My boyfriend and I were given some second hand dive gear and they happily inspected all of it at the shop and serviced the things that needed it. I can now cross this one off the bucket list, and I look forward to a lifetime of exploring the world's oceans, up close and personal!
