If foam noodles can be found floating on the surface of almost every pool, think how many perfectly salted meatballs must be at the bottom of the ocean. Discover the sea's sunken treats with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a Discover Scuba course at Aquatic World in North Syracuse (a $25 value).
As a full-service dive shop staffed by PADI-certified depth delvers, Aquatic World submerges nautical novices deep into the world of scuba. The introductory Discover Scuba class imparts diving fundamentals to pupils as they acquaint themselves with the provided gear and gradually acquire the secret language of sea turtles. After a 15-minute in-class rundown of the basics, aquatic adventurers get to live out their undersea aspirations during a one-hour session in Aquatic World’s on-site pool, using masks, fins, and a respiratory breathing system. Though the class won't churn out scuba divers certified to dive alone, it might finally put to rest a persistent fear of bathtubs and really big puddles.
