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 $399, you get a weekend scuba-certification course and a weekend getaway to Catalina Island from PCH Scuba in Burbank (up to an $800 value). A scuba cylinder and fill (roughly $25) are not included in the price of today's Groupon and must be paid for separately.

PCH Scuba's sole focus is on educating divers and perpetuating passion for the sport. With today's deal, prospective aquatourists will participate in the open-water scuba program, which starts with a full weekend of scuba education and training overseen by instructors who have attained Master Scuba Diver Trainer status, a rank that compels sea lions to stand at attention whenever these trainers enter a room. The initial watery weekend consists of a review of academic materials, two four-hour pool sessions, and additional training as needed. During the second weekend, students will embark on a trip to Avalon, Catalina Island, for two days of scuba experiences, with a two-night stay at the Hermosa Hotel included in the package to give students a place to dry out, rest up, and practice their porpoise impressions. The ferry trip to the island is also included in the price of today's deal.

Although PCH Scuba does not sell equipment, it will assist students in the purchase of gear to help them find the best prices. PCH Scuba also keeps students informed of special events after certification, providing new adventures with new friends telling old stories about ancient sea kingdoms.

PCH Scuba

Trips and training form the centerpiece of PCH Scuba's services for area hydronauts. Programs range from beginner-level certification to search-and-recovery training, and adventures journey both close to home and as far ranging as Fiji. The Open Water Diver course makes for a fun and accessible first foray beneath the waves, incorporating a deep-delving adventure to Catalina Island, which is named after the third queen of Spain: Queen Island. The staff leads explorations of San Diego's collection of wrecks and adventures on chartered dive boats. Whatever sort of wave-blanketed voyage the aquatic adventurer desires, PCH's community of Master Scuba Diver–certified teachers and dive leaders are eager to chaperone.

It was a great time.

PCH Scuba team is professional and super nice. I highly recommend them. They ensure that you are well trained before taking you to the ocean. I recommend calling them instead of buying from Groupon even though they give same response. My instructor was Carlos and he was super fun and ensured that each of us were safe and knew what we were suppose to. Overall I had amazing time. Thank you guys.

PCH Scuba really goes above and beyond to ensure you learn the material, and that you are safe and confident in every aspect of the PADI Certification process. They worked with our schedules, provided excellent instruction and really made us feel like part of a family. Many thanks to Bret, Amy, Nikki, Joe, Chad, Peter and the rest of the gang for such an amazing experience. We had Amy in the classroom where she was clear and concise imparting tidbits for remembering important details and preparing us for the written quiz. Nikki was our instructor in the pool and ocean, she made sure to communicate clearly and took her time with us to give us the best possible experience in and out of the water. Knowing that they aren't just there to sell gear, helped confirm this was the right place for us to learn. I look forward to other group dives PCH Scuba has that we can participate in.
