Humans have long envied fish for their ability to breathe underwater and swim naked without everybody getting all weird about it. Get slippery with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $175 for a dive class and open water certification ($349 value)
- $225 for a dive class and open water certification plus equipment rental, which includes tanks, weights, regulator, and BC ($460 value)
After learning about diving techniques in the classroom, students move to the pool for five sessions to practice their new skills. Once they’ve gotten their sea-legs, they head to the open water for four dives, which together earn divers their open water certification. Groupon holders who choose the first option must buy or rent equipment for the open water dives (equipment is provided during the pool sessions).
Gulfport Dive Center
Coral growing in brightly hued clusters. Translucent jellyfish floating past verdant, undulating seaweed. Schools of black bar soldierfish swimming in unison during their morning roll call. These are just a few of the myriad sights students at Gulfport Dive Center can see during their aquatic expeditions. Owned by a family of avid divers, the center gathers a community of fledgling sub-aquanauts to explore the waterways of the Sunshine State, whether the staff is training them during classroom sessions and open dives or equipping them with gear from Aqualung, Sherwood, and Akona.
