Like mastering invisibility, the art of breathing underwater requires years of practice and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get an open-water scuba certification class ($309 value) at either of International Scuba's Carrollton or Garland locations. While you must bring your own mask, fins, and snorkel, the rest of the scuba gear is provided (tank, regulator, BCD, and wetsuit). This Groupon also gets you a 10% discount on gear purchases.
An open-water scuba certification class dips ungilled divers deeper than the basics of breathing underwater en route to earning a PADI-certified open-diving card accepted at dive destinations worldwide. With flippers-on experience under the watchful eye of PADI-certified instructors, divers will learn how to be safe and ecologically sound while interacting with the elements present in an open dive–like water. Beyond providing gallons of aquatic knowledge, they'll happily answer any questions you have regarding your dive, potential underwater odysseys, or how long they think you can hold your breath. Beyond giving your hair ultimate surf appeal, the mimicked salty seas of International Scuba's heated, indoor, saltwater pools keep your skin gently soft while your brain-sponge sops up knowledge.
