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. This Groupon gives you all the skills you need to mingle with the mermaids.

$185 for a PADI Open Water Diver Certification Course ($399 Value)

Students complete two Groupon-specific classroom sessions, held monthly on a Tuesday and Thursday. They then train in an indoor heated pool for six hours on the following Saturday and Sunday. To complete their certification, they make four dives into either local lakes in summer or Florida springs in winter.

Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Columbia Scuba a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.

About Columbia SCUBA

Mankind was never meant to breathe underwater, but the instructors at Columbia SCUBA defy such limitations, helping students of all sorts—from small children to disabled adults—explore the forbidden depths. As young as 8, kids can start training with PADI Bubblemaker classes, using equipment suited to their smaller size, and swimmers of all ages can join Discover Scuba sessions to learn the basics of diving in the safety of a pool. For students looking to become certified divers, open-water diving and specialty diving courses test practical skills in unique environments, such as submerged shipwrecks filled with sunken coupons, whereas trips to the Florida springs or Caribbean convey the majestic experience of communing up close with marine wildlife.
