The earliest undersea explorers carried little more than basic breathing apparatuses, starfish repellant, and simple trinkets to offer sharks in exchange for directions. Get your undersea legs with today's Groupon: for $12, you get an introductory scuba class from Captain Aqua's at the Chabot College pool in Hayward (a $25 value). Choose from the following dates: May 15, June 5, July 10, August 7, September 11, October 9.
Captain Aqua's enthusiastic instructors plunge developing divers and nascent Neptunians into the exhilarating realm of scuba in the introductory Try Scuba course. In the pool’s safe confines, the resident pros—with more than 50 years of combined diving experience—guide amateur aqualetes through the basics of breathing underwater, an experience as eye-opening and electrifying as Flipper's shrill rap battles with Shamu. Though prospective fin jockeys must provide their own towel and swimsuit, Captain Aqua's furnishes other necessary aquatic accouterments. Students should bring a mask, snorkel, and fins if already owned; otherwise, they are available to borrow, free of charge. Call Captain Aqua's to schedule a class, for updated info on class times and dates, or to show off a recently learned whale mating call.
