Similar to tickling a bear without losing an arm, the art of breathing underwater requires years of practice and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon to Hart City Scuba Inc. in Elkhart. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get a Discover Scuba class (a $60 value).
- For $149, you get a PADI open-water-certification course (a $300 value).
For PADI open-water certification, students must purchase an e-Learning package or open-water manual and DVD set and provide their own mask, fins, snorkel, and boots.
A team of PADI-certified scuba instructors facilitates underwater exploration with introductory and certification courses taught at Hart City Scuba, Inc.’s five-star IDC dive center. Students cultivate basic diving skills during 90-minute Discover Scuba classes, which blend classroom training and supervised pool dives, with all necessary equipment and underwater passport stamps provided.
The PADI open-water certification course spans three sections, including several hours of coursework and confined and open-water dives. Though not included in the cost of this Groupon, pupils must first garner basic scuba knowledge with the completion of an e-Learning package or open-water manual and DVD assignments. A series of five contained dives eases participants into submerged movement and requires that they demonstrate an ability to swim 200 yards, float for 10 minutes, and create a 5-foot-high cannonball splash before finishing the course in the spring with four open-water-training dives.
