What You'll Get
Breathing underwater, like eating fireworks, constructing a monument, and getting married, should only be attempted if you're confident you can do it. Mingle with the mermaids with today's Groupon to Capital City Scuba. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get a try-scuba class (a $40 value).
- For $205, you get an open-water diver course (a $410 value).
Capital City Scuba trains scuba divers in introductory classes and courses carrying participants all the way to certification. The Try Scuba class is a one-night orientation to the aqueous wonders of breathing underwater and playing pat-a-cake with eager lobsters. Students journey to the deep end of the swimming pool with a veteran instructor to master the basics of equipment usage, meter reading, breathing, and fashioning baskets underwater. The open-water class includes the cost of a mandatory student orientation two weeks before the beginning of the course, as well as all required books and materials. In addition to a classroom study component, participants will take part in at least one snorkel training dive and five scuba-training dives. At the conclusion of the course, successful students will receive open-water diver certification and the keys to Davey Jones's pick-up. Though most equipment is included, students will need to purchase a pair of dive boots and a dive watch, and are encouraged to stock up on their own scuba ensemble. Training dives are conducted locally, at a training quarry, or within the undulating embrace of the Great Lakes. Travel fees and other miscellaneous trip expenses are not included in the value of the Groupon.
