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 today's Groupon: for $25, you get a one-hour Discover Scuba Pool Experience Class that includes 15-minutes of classroom instruction and a 45-minute pool session at Pacific Pro Dive in Courtenay (a $50.40 value, including HST).
The experienced staff at Pacific Pro Dive use their substantial subaqueous know-how to guide students through informative beginner scuba classes. The Discover Scuba Pool Experience course begins on terra firma with a 15-minute classroom session that covers the basics of self-contained underwater breathing, how to enter and exit the water, key safety precautions, and appropriate small-talk for the receiving line at krakens' cotillions. An overview of scuba gear familiarizes students with proper equipment use and care. Once the essentials have been disseminated, divers slip into the waters of the Pacific Pro Dive pool for a 45-minute flipper-fest to test out their newly acquired submarine skills and prepare for upcoming drag races against rival dolphins.
