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: for $17, you get one Discover Scuba class at Northwest Scuba (a $35 value), located at 6815 104 Street.
Northwest Scuba complements its introductory instruction course with more than 20 years of scuba teaching experience. After watching an instructional video, you'll suit up in a dashing underwater tuxedo and allow the experienced mermen and merwomen of Northwest to take the lead in a 1.5-hour pool excursion. The controlled environment of the pool keeps things safe and simple for everyone involved. The skilled instructors will acquaint you with the aquatic dos and don’ts essential for mortal survival below sea level and will answer any questions concerning dives or your continuation of the sport, drawing upon their vast, oceanlike expanses of knowledge.
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. Post-class, prepare to be able to shower for hours, retrieve all the coins from the bottom of every fountain, and diffuse nuclear bombs perched perilously above an abyssal alien city. Call ahead to schedule a class time.
