What You'll Get
Scuba divers have worked tirelessly to uncover the mysteries of the oceans, yet more is known about the universe thanks to NASA’s initiative to launch thousands of scuba divers into space. Explore the aquaverse with today’s Groupon to Captain Rob’s Scuba Diving in Dania. Choose between the following options:
- For $99, you get a discover-scuba-diving session including equipment (a $199 value).
- For $199, you get a level-one PADI open-water-diver-certification course including equipment (a $499 value).<p>
Equipped with a U.S. Coast Guard license and PADI instructor certification, Captain Rob’s Scuba Diving leads expeditions of eager aquanauts into the briny deep with introductory poolside classes and open-water-certification instruction. Unseasoned submergers can dip toes into maritime exploration in the discover-scuba-diving pool practice session, getting acclimated to essential equipment and techniques. Next, participants climb aboard Captain Rob’s six-passenger state-of-the-art Grady White dive boat for a 30-minute open-water, shallow-reef-diving experience. Though students won’t be certified to dive alone from one class, they will be certified to sit in puddles with scuba gear on.
A level-one PADI certification course nets nautical aficionados all the training necessary to dive worldwide and at select locations in the lunar Sea of Tranquility. Small groups of up to four students earn sea lungs during the equivalent of five confined dives. Following pool sessions and classroom instruction, four instructor-assisted 30-minute open-water dives put water warriors in realistic diving situations. Upon completion of four chapter quizzes and one final exam to judge student knowledge of equipment, diving techniques, and aquatic jaywalking laws, freshly minted submariners will receive PADI Open Water Diver certification recognized around the globe and by most mermaid governments.
Though Captain Rob’s Scuba Diving sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Captain Rob's Scuba Diving
Rob—a licensed Coast Guard captain and PADI-certified master scuba diver trainer—is affectionately called Captain Rob by his clients. His eponymous company helps the uninitiated to explore underwater with PADI-certification classes that focus on open-water dives in open water. From his 27-foot boat, a Grady White called Little Bugga, the captain launches expeditions beneath the waves. His encyclopedic knowledge of the area's ecology, which includes marine life, shines as he explains it in detail to divers. He also uses his decades of experience to teach new boat owners how to fish or captain their vessel through turbulent waters and car washes.
