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 Splash Dive Center. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a Discover Scuba course (a $49.75 value).
- For $289, you get a PADI Open Water Diver scuba-certification course with equipment rental (a $560 value). This package does not include the online course required by PADI ($99.75–$120) that must be completed for full certification.
The amphibious pros at Splash Dive Center guide merpeople of all skill levels into the water with a roster of beginner- and certification-level courses. In the Discover Scuba class, beginning divers and recently evolved dolphins strap on specially fitted equipment provided by the facility before plunging into the pool and soaking up two hours of scuba fundamentals. The PADI Open Water Diver basic scuba-diving course entails three days of diving toward the goal of certification as a scuba diver. The tri-tiered program kicks off with classroom or Internet lessons, after successful completion of online PADI course materials, and concludes with checkout dives, during which instructors evaluate form and sea-lamprey mating calls. Successful candidates receive certification from PADI. All subaquatic students receive discounts on gear purchases, as well as free tank rentals and free air fills.
