- $22 for a Discover Scuba experience or Discover Snorkeling lesson (up to $99 value)
Groupon customers will also receive $25 off the cost of any snorkeling gear purchase of $100 or more from the Blue Water Divers store.
During the 90-minute Discover Scuba class, participants learn about their borrowed scuba equipment and dive in a warm indoor pool, eventually breathing underwater. The 60-minute Discover Snorkeling class similarly serves as an introduction to snorkeling gear, set up, and the practice itself.
Blue Water Divers
Blue Water Divers is the dream project of Lorraine and Dave Riscinti, who have more than 30 years of combined experience in the diving industry. Along with a number of capable instructors—many of whom started as customers—this husband-and-wife team assists divers as they take their first steps into the deep or learn new skills for underwater exploration. They lead introductory courses, such as Discover Scuba, and more advanced sessions, like rescue diving or wreck diving.
The modular open-water course, for example, teaches newcomers the basics and provides ample time to build confidence through practice dives in the onsite heated pool. Eventually, students can attend Blue Water's expeditions to farflung locales, like Turks and Caicos, or more local hot spots, including Dutch Springs, a spring-fed lake with 100-foot depths and excellent visibility.
