It was a great experience. I took the snorkeling class which was lots of fun. I didn't know there was more to just putting on the mask and checking out the fish, thanks for all the tips. Both the instructor and the other students were friendly, funny and supportive. Thanks Desert Divers for providing these classes. Next is scuba diving training for my trip.

Amazing Two-Hour Intro got us interested. The instructors are awesome and the Open Water experience in San Carlos, MX has our family hooked (no pun intended, sea life!). Desert Divers was a store, class experience and now friends. I highly recommend them! ~Elizabeth Cherry

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.

Choose from Three Options

  • $19 for a Try Scuba, Scuba Refresher, or Discover Snorkel class (up to a $60 value)
  • $175 for an open-water scuba course, including all classroom and pool instruction, class materials and rental of buoyancy control device, regulator, tanks and weights (a $427.95 value)

During the two-hour Try Scuba class, attendees learn the basics of underwater breathing in a shallow, controlled pool. The two-hour Refresher Scuba course is designed for already certified divers who haven't been under the sea in a while, and requires students to bring or rent their own equipment. Discover Snorkel acclimates swimmers as young as 5 to snorkeling in the swimming pool during a two-hour class. Click here to see class schedules.

The 22-hour intensive open-water diving course includes classroom instruction and pool dives, teaching pupils need-to-know knowledge including how to operate masks and tanks, how to dive safely, and how to politely decline scholarship offers from schools of fish. Students in every open-water class must supply their own mask, fins, snorkel, and boots. After finishing the course, each new diver receives a certification card, which attests to mastery of the submarine realm.

About 72 Aquatics

72 Aquatics owner, Alex, has a love for diving with all who are bold enough to strike out on an underwater adventure! The reason we are 72 Aquatics is that 72% of the world's surface is covered in water. Over the past 30 years, 72 Aquatics have recruited a staff of dedicated instructors that schools nascent underwater explorers in introductory lessons and intensive scuba-certification classes. The staff members equip students with most necessary gear for the classes, which cover maritime topics ranging from first aid and fish identification to deep diving and how to fashion sleeping octopuses into temporary helmets. Many classes require that participants first take an open-water scuba course, which bestows diving fundamentals and can eventually lead to certification. The center welcomes all past open-water students back for free refresher courses, helping former pupils sharpen their skills in advance of upcoming dives and snorkel-throwing tournaments. To further refine aquatic abilities, 72 Aquatics leads new graduates out on field trips to such dive-friendly locales as San Carlos, Mexico, and Key Largo, Florida.
