The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. My son seemed a little resistant at first about going, but the instructors were friendly and re-assuring which gave him a boost of confidence. By the end of the session, he felt much better and commented that he looked forward to coming back.

What You'll Get

Scuba diving is a natural extension of traditional aquatic pastimes, such as singing harmonies in a crustacean choir or watching the Florida Marlins lose an underwater baseball game to actual marlins. Indulge in alternative oceanic recreation with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a two-hour scuba experience, including a tour, orientation, and 60-minute diving session, one 5”x7” photo of your underwater endeavor, and $50 toward future certification classes at Open Water Adventures (a $95 total value) on Tryon Street.

Captained by diver Joe Gaydeski and a flippered crew of fully qualified staff members, Open Water Adventures teaches novice submergers proper techniques for safe, exciting scuba endeavors. Patient deep-plunge professionals guide swimsuited customers through the contemporary facility, then begin training above ground by introducing students to scuba gear, which is included. Sate burning curiosity about what lies beneath the glassy surface of indoor pools during the 60-minute underwater course (class sizes vary daily), where you'll practice proper sub-sea-level breathing, hone ear equalizing, learn how to ask a school of herring for directions, and master clearing masks and regulators.

Oceanic aficionados mail customers one 5”x7” photo of the subaqueous adventure and offer $50 for burgeoning scuba students to use toward future certification classes ($299 for one group certification class, $399 for a private class), which require the purchase of some scuba gear.

About Open Water Adventures

The instructors at Open Water Adventures reach out to swimmers of all levels with watery exploration from kids’ swimming classes to international scuba-diving trips. Alongside a dive-simulator pool for scuba students, the indoor heated pool hosts swim lessons in lanes along a 2-foot ledge for younger swimmers. Through it all, the experienced instructors—inspired by the likes of Jacques Cousteau and their childhood rubber duckies—impart tips on managing scuba equipment or doing the backstroke. The year-round swimming lessons educate youngsters of all abilities aged 3–12, drawing from the Swim Schools International program's standardized teachings, which focus on water safety and proper technique. After taking a dip, swimmers can scurry to club-style bathrooms with lockers and showers, or head to the onsite shop that sells gear from swim caps to guaranteed scuba equipment.
