What You'll Get
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 to Deep Blue Scuba. Choose between the following two options:
- For $35, you get a scuba-refresher class (a $75 value).
- For $155, you get an ANDI open-water scuba-certification course (up to a $400 value).
Deep Blue’s comprehensive courses refresh dulled scuba skills or certify novice seasplorers in open-water courses in the classroom, the pool, and the crystalline fields of Lake Travis. Out-of-practice aqua adventurers can update their scuba smarts with provided equipment in the pool-refresher course, practicing current procedures and anemone impressions to ensure safety while passing through the briny depth. Learn to confidently glide through underwater realms and follow coral-reef traffic signs in the ANDI Open Water course, a series of classes that test textbook material and allow students to practice real scuba-diving in watery settings. After donning the provided diving gear, including oxygen tanks, masks, and snorkels, water wayfarers jump into a simulation pool to learn below-the-surface fundamentals before taking to Lake Travis for two days of open-water diving.

About Deep Blue Scuba
The instructors at Deep Blue Scuba teach aquatic proficiency through the rigorous and comprehensive ANDI certification system. ANDI certification imparts pupils with the skills necessary to dive self-sufficiently or with companions, and trains students via pool sessions and open-water dives set in the crystalline near Port Aransas. After mastering descent and ascent techniques, students can expand their knowledge base through a slew of specialty courses including underwater navigation, night diving, and wreck diving. Scuba instructors map out the best local dive locations and host periodic Discover Scuba outings where divers sample new gear and reacquaint themselves with watery skills. The diving enterprise also hosts expeditions to far-away waters, piloting trips that explore Australia and Mexico, and confront the notorious gangs of clownfish that lay claim to the Florida Keys.
