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.
