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: for $39, you get an introduction-to-scuba-diving program at Ascuba Venture (a $79.95 Value).

Staffed by 12 SSI Dive Professionals, Ascuba Venture expertly acquaints aspiring aqua-explorers with the underwater experience. Before strapping on the oxygen tanks, students attend three above-water classroom sessions to learn the basics of open-water diving. With newfound marine knowledge in mind, mermaid impersonators then have a fitting session, where they're supplied with all the necessary equipment to make their first dive in Ascuba's lusciously warm indoor pool. The pool session covers both snorkeling and scuba skills, giving students a taste of what it's like exploring the unknowns of the Great Barrier Reef or the uncharted territories of Burt Reynolds's whirlpool. Class scheduling is flexible to fit into crowded schedules and rigid datebooks—call ahead to reserve a class time.

The introduction-to-scuba-diving program forms the first half of a complete certification course in open-water diving, a certification recognized around the world and on some parts of the moon. The full course involves three additional academic classes and three or four more submerged sessions (a $395 total value). The value of this Groupon may be applied toward the full certification course.

Great swim instructor. I took advanced adult swim lessons where I learned a lot and gained confidence in a short amount of time.
