Somewhere far below sea level, the most fashionable critters in the subsurface world are gracefully strutting their stuff in form-fitting wetsuits with foot-flattering flippers. Grace the coveted underwater runways of exploration with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a Discover Scuba Diving class at Bluewater Divers (a $25 value).
Boasting a five-star rating as an instructor-development center from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, Bluewater Divers' skilled teachers school swimmers in the elements of scuba diving. Halibut-like humans dive into the Discover Scuba Diving class, where they are briefed on the belly-flopping basics before communing with the chlorine in Oklahoma City Community College's Olympic-size heated pool. Bluewater Divers will provide all the necessary gear and equipment for this 45-minute introductory course; all the participant needs to provide is a towel, swimsuit, and an insatiable desire to one day go shopping in Atlantis. The center keeps its discovery classes confined and intimate, with just one instructor for every four pupils. Once students have completed the discovery class, those wishing to further their aquatic education can receive $25 toward Bluewater Divers' $300 scuba-certification course. All amphibious aspirants must be 10 or older and must sign a liability waiver in order to participate.
Whether at the retail store or beneath the water's surface, Bluewater Divers' crew maintains a commitment to helping their customers live life to the fullest. The staff, which includes PADI-certified instructors as well as an aptly named director of happiness, leads scuba classes at heated pools, natural bodies of water, or inside their own imaginations. After students master beginner courses, instructors can help them obtain PADI certification for open-water diving in the deep blue or learn advanced skills such as rescue diving. It’s not uncommon for students to foster new friendships with other divers or their instructors, especially during the school’s regularly scheduled social events and diving trips.
An authorized dealer for many leading brands, Bluewater Divers’ staff keeps the shop filled with necessary scuba equipment and accessories. The crew also runs a demo department, which lets divers test gear before they commit to living inside a giant fishbowl.
