What You'll Get
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 this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $15 for a Discover Scuba introductory diving course (a $40 value)
- $149 for a PADI open-water, scuba-diving-certification course (a $300 value)
During introductory sessions, divers learn the basics of scuba equipment and safety in a heated pool as seasoned instructors look on. Classes are held June 16 and 17, August 18 and 19, October 20 and 21, and December 15 and 16.
Broken down into three parts, the open-water course begins with registration and dedicated consumption of an open-water manual and DVD (not included), preparing soon-to-be-divers for a sequence of quizzes followed by a final exam. Five confined-water sessions get students acquainted with the equipment before they make four open-water dives in Gilboa Quarry, where they may encounter a paddlefish or sunken Grumman airplane. After achieving this feat, divers receive a certification card, which is recognized worldwide and enables dives in far-flung locales. Classes are held August 18 and 19, October 20 and 21, and December 15 and 16.
