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 $25, you get one Discover Scuba class at Coral Reef Dive Shop in Slidell (a $50 value). Classes will be offered on these dates.
Coral Reef's teachers have helped earn the school the highest level of certification from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. Pupils in the two-hour Discover Scuba Diving class jump into shallow waters, where an instructor certified in scuba diving and flipper martial arts combines a variety of demonstrations in an easy-to-digest lesson. The session includes the necessary mask, snorkel, and fins, and a buoyancy pack cradles the mechanical scuba tank and allows divers to control their position in the water. The class serves as an ideal hands-on introduction to underwater exploration without the hassle of becoming a porpoise's intern.

Coral Reef's instructors help fledgling divers to fall in love with scuba diving, guiding students as they master buoyancy-control skills and environmental awareness. The scuba teachers oversee divers as they advance from beginner to master scuba diver in small and private classes at their PADI five-star facility, where water shimmers in both indoor and outdoor pools. Additionally, instructors teach specialized skills such as cave diving, rescue diving, and how to become a certified scuba instructor. They also pull up their anchors to take regular diving trips to exciting, watery locals such as Panama City Beach and William Howard Taft's tub.
