Similar to tickling a bear without losing an arm, the art of breathing underwater requires years of practice and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a Discover Scuba Diving class at Burlington Dive Center, located in Burlington (a $50 value).
Officially recognized by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), Burlington Dive Center offers scuba and snorkeling classes with aqua-savvy instructors in its on-site heated pool. The 90-minute Discover Scuba Diving class introduces aspiring divers to the weightless exhilaration of breathing underwater, much like the exhilaration an astronaut feels when breathing in the shuttle’s space jacuzzi. Students will watch a brief DVD and review protocol before they bedeck their aqua-curious limbs and explore their temporary liquid home. Under the guidance of their PADI-certified instructor, adventurous students can head toward deeper waters to experience the freedom of an open-water dive, or hunt for ancient doubloons buried in pool filters. Those who discover a passion for fishy freedom can find all the equipment they need in the dive shop—Burlington Dive Center is an authorized dealer for all the products it sells, rents, and repairs.
