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 this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- C$39 for a three-hour introductory scuba-diving class (a C$99 value)
- C$69 for a three-hour introductory scuba-diving class for two (a C$198 value)
Classes take place Wednesdays from 7p.m. to 10 p.m.
During the first 30 minutes, students stay dry in a classroom as they absorb the basics of diving, watch an instructional video, and learn underwater etiquette such as how to greet an octopus without staring at its legs. Then, coaches demonstrate how to use the provided gear, which includes all necessary tanks, masks, and other aquatic paraphernalia, and neophytes splash into the waters of an indoor pool. Swimmers can flipper around to get comfortable breathing underwater, and practice beginning dive exercises, such as commanding a shark to bite the lock off a treasure chest. Skills learned during the course set students on the path toward PADI scuba certification. Benthic Scuba Center also equips divers with a wide variety of diving products and equipment, and Groupon holders enjoy a 10 per cent discount on the day of redemption.
