Somewhere far below sea level, the most fashionable critters in the subsurface world are gracefully strutting their stuff in form-fitting wetsuits with foot-flattering flippers. Grace the coveted underwater runways of exploration with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a Discover Scuba Diving course at Gigglin' Marlin Divers (a $50 value).
Gigglin' Marlin's friendly yet surprisingly serious instructors guide students through the Discover Scuba Diving course from the safe, salinated depths of a heated practice pool. A brief video or flip chart introduces divers to necessary techniques before they splash beneath the temperate tides, learning firsthand about buoyancy control, breathing underwater, and the funny faces that best benefit from wearing goggles.
Gigglin Marlin Divers and Swim School
As the indoor swimming arm of the Gigglin Marlin Divers and Swim School scuba-diving school—recently named Houston's best by the Houston Press—Gigglin Marlin Divers and Swim School entices water persons with a saltwater pool of titanic proportions. The facility's 75-foot long, up to 15-foot deep heated saltwater pool plays host to a crowded schedule of activities. The watery fun includes swim instruction for those less than 1 year old as well as adults. Regular times are also set aside for lap swimmers and indoor scuba sessions in which divers explore the saltwater pool's mysterious depths.
