Scuba masks not only make it possible for divers to see well underwater, but also render human eyes more prominent, thereby putting fish embarrassed by their bulging peepers at ease. Mollify self-conscious finned friends with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get an Introduction to Scuba class at Blue Region Scuba (a $35 value) in Greenville.
As a Scuba Schools International–certified training center, Blue Region Scuba has been helping landlubbers fulfill their under-the-sea fantasies for more than 24 years. Gill-less humans can submerge themselves in the scuba experience with an introductory class, which lasts about two hours, led by professional diving instructors. The school supplies all the necessary gear, except for swimsuits and towels. After suiting up, divers will slip under the surface and learn the basics of underwater lifestyle, from how to breathe through the regulator to how to position television antennas for the best reception of Shark Week. After the session, those who find themselves under the sea's spell can pursue internationally recognized certification by continuing with classes at Blue Region Scuba to complete the transition to mermaid or merman.
Introduction classes are scheduled for Saturday evenings, on May 14 and 21 and June 11 and 18. Blue Region Scuba will schedule more sessions as needed.
