When Jacques Cousteau first dove underwater, he discovered several exciting new marine species, introducing to us the rainbow-horned dolphin, the great bearded shark, and the Aqua-Ghostbusters. Explore negative altitude possibilities with today's Groupon: for $29, you get an intro snorkeling class ($59 value) at National Aquatic Service in Syracuse.
Certified staff members teach everyone from underwater novices to expert divers in 24 different classes at National Aquatic Service (NAS). During your three-hour introductory snorkeling class, NAS instructors will impart basic hydro-skills, including breath-hold diving and surface snorkeling, in its controlled pool setting. Develop the abilities to safely navigate underwater environments and to mingle with eel, coral reefs, and Dutch-speaking tour guides. Snorkeling equipment will be provided to students. Water-plunging students will feel safe and secure with their NAS instructor, as the service has taught more than 33,000 students to scuba dive without suffering a single accident.
Diving neophyte who develop an amorous relationship with the hobby during the first class can progress to more advanced instruction, all the way to becoming a scuba instructor. Students do not need to know how to swim before attending the class, but they must know how to juggle ice cubes.
