Breathing underwater, like eating fireworks, constructing a monument, and getting married, should be attempted only if you're confident you can do it. Gain aquatic confidence with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a one-hour intro to scuba class at Ascuba Venture (a $25 value).
The SSI signature water-training method converts land-walkers to underwater explorers by repeatedly reviewing newly acquired skills, producing conditioned responses that make diving feel more natural and mermaid-esque. Each class is helmed by an SSI dive professional, who conducts a brief predive training session before leading students via conga line into the shallow, comfortably heated pool. The accommodating waters allow each diver to learn breathing techniques while practicing graceful, dolphin-like leaps into the air.
Ascuba Venture, a quarter-century-old diving school, rears expert aquanauts using the SSI signature water-training method, an entry-level system whose open-water diving certification is recognized internationally. Through academic, open-water, and pool sessions, students absorb beginning to advanced scuba and snorkeling skills, as well as vital safety fundamentals that include avoiding eye contact with hostile flushed goldfish. Heated to 82¬-84 degrees, Ascuba's indoor pool comfortably cradles amateur divers, who are clad in safe and modern equipment provided by the facility.
