Thanks to scuba technology, humans can play hide-and-seek in the ocean, tag in underwater caves, and "find the engagement ring" in a friend's pool. Introduce your lungs to exotic games with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a two-hour Discover Scuba lesson at Capt. Saam’s Scuba School in Stamford (a $100 value).

Deploying techniques that have trained the scuba units of local police and fire departments, the diligent instructors at Capt. Saam’s assimilate novice divers into the world under the waves. A Discover Scuba class allows amateur amphibians to sample the submerged lifestyle safely and easily in an indoor training pool, free from the dangers of haunted shipwrecks and the taunts of bullying fish. Under the guidance of an experienced instructor and divemaster, the introductory lesson acclimates submariners to the feel and operation of diving equipment, all of which is provided, and to the experience of breathing underwater. The two-hour lesson begins with an informational video, a brief instruction session, and a gear fitting, after which students will hit the water, apologize to it, and spend roughly one hour within it.

After completing this primer, aspiring aqua-savants can continue their education with one of Capt. Saam’s certification courses, all taught to NAUI or PADI standards. Rescue and public-safety training is also offered, and private scuba lessons are available for divers with backyard pools or sprawling undersea kingdoms. Participants will receive a $50 coupon for a full scuba class.

Capt. Saam's Scuba School

Many consider scuba diving a hobby or fun activity to do on vacation, but for Capt. Saam, it has become a lifestyle. He learned to scuba-dive more than 35 years ago and has gone on to not only establish his namesake scuba school but also obtain a US Coast Guard master license, teach scuba diving in Hawaii, and make regular tropical-dive trips. All of his scuba-diving and maritime experiences have pooled into a vast reservoir of knowledge which he passes on to his scuba-school crew—all of whom are NAUI- and PADI-certified instructors and dive masters. Together they immerse students in aquatic classes––both group and private––modeled after those practiced by police and fire-department scuba teams. They keep group lessons small—no more than seven students per session—to ensure personalized instruction and each student's safety.

Students develop their passion and ability to explore subaquatic terrains while also learning survival skills. They learn procedures to calmly handle accidents during first aid and safety courses, train to become lifeguards, or master the art of prying a friend out of a whale’s baleen. Those looking to clock in more hours exploring the ocean can opt for a local dive charter, which ferries 18-25 scuba divers and snorkelers aboard Capt. Saam's boat the Silver Dolphin as it sets sail to a variety of diving locations, from Smith's Reef and Sheffield Island to Gwendolyn Steers Wreck.

Though Capt. Saam's is a scuba school first and foremost, the center also offers equipment rentals and tank fills at its full retail dive shop, tropical-dive trips to the Caribbean, and a ground aviation-training course that teaches students the basics of flight.
