Scuba diving is the only way left to find hidden treasure, befriend a nautical skeleton, or strap a huge tank to yourself. Explore the possibilities with today's Groupon: for $30, you get entry for one child, age 8–12, into the Children's Scuba Ranger's Program at Choo Choo Diving and Aquatic Center (a $59 value).
For more than 25 years, Choo Choo Diving and Aquatic Center's SSI Open Water instructors and assistants have been helping people feel comfortable and confident in the water. During the three-hour Scuba Rangers program, children learn about scuba safety and scuba gear assembly, then experience the sensation of breathing underwater without accidentally swallowing bubble bath. Each class takes place from 6–9 p.m. on Saturday evenings and teaches kids how to interact with underwater life and identify different types of fish, while providing them with basic underwater communication skills, such as the super slow-motion high five.

Whether certifying scuba divers or teaching kids how to swim, Choo Choo Diving and Aquatic Center's small class sizes ensure students get the most out of their courses. New divers can enroll in the discover scuba class, while more advanced divers can get certifications to become open-water instructors. Meanwhile, at the swim school, kids as young as 6 months old splash in the pool with their parents, whereas older children are separated by age and experience level.
