Breathing underwater, like eating fireworks, constructing a monument, and getting married, should only be attempted if you're confident you can do it. Today's Groupon gives you all the skills you need to mingle with the mermaids: for $30, you get a Discovery Scuba class at Learn Scuba Chicago (a $100 value). Classes take place at Keating Hall on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology, located on South Wabash Street.

Underwater enthusiast and diving instructor Captain Bob Huff leads Learn Scuba Chicago's Discovery Scuba class, a course crafted to enlighten the dive-curious and refresh former underwater aficionados. After slipping into the provided gear, suited swimmers follow Captain Bob into the shallow end of a heated pool, where they’ll test their breathing regulators and knowledge of underwater traffic laws before dabbling in deeper waters. Subaqueous athletes will conquer only what they feel comfortable with; those hooked to scuba after the Discovery Scuba class can arrange to obtain certification and continue with more classes at an additional cost.

Though the class won't churn out scuba divers certified to dive alone, it might finally put to rest a persistent fear of bathtubs and really big puddles. While breathing underwater can feel a little strange at first, it quickly becomes second nature after a bit of submerged practice. Postclass, prepare to be able to shower for hours, retrieve all the coins from the bottom of every fountain, and defuse nuclear bombs perched perilously above an abyssal alien city.

Learn Scuba Chicago

Despite a close encounter with a hammerhead shark, Learn Scuba Chicago's Captain Bob just keeps on scuba diving. The aquatic expert got an up-close peep of shark teeth on his very first Caribbean dive, yet has scarcely taken his flippers off since. He started Learn Scuba Chicago four years ago in a garage as a grassroots effort to build community. Captain Bob and crew lead diving courses, which range from thrilling dips for beginners to instructor certifications. The calendar is flexible so students can plunge into indoor pools at their own pace at a variety of locations, such as Water's Edge Aquatic Center in Bensenville, the UIC campus, and Northeastern Illinois University campus, with open water dives held at Kankakee's Haigh Quarry.
