Scuba diving shares the inherent risks of eating soup in outer space: 99% of those who try it are sopping wet within the first few seconds. Take a dip in your favorite liquid with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a Discover Scuba Diving Experience from Dive Magic (a $60 value). Scuba sessions are held at Boise Water Sports on Orchard Street.
With a five-star rating as an instructor-development center from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), Dive Magic’s aquanauts impart scuba prowess to aspiring underwater explorers. During a two-hour Discover Scuba session (a $50 value), fledgling flipper-kickers are introduced to the essential elements of scuba safety, equipment usage, and how to gurgle "gesundheit!" after a subaquatic sneeze, then descend into the depths of an on-site heated swimming pool. While basking in the buoyancy, a Dive Magic staff photographer will snap a photographic keepsake (a $10 value) to memorialize the immersed moment. To make the experience as comfortable as possible, Dive Magic offers a choice between male or female instructors. All equipment is provided.
