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 $90, you get an open-water scuba class (a $185 value) at Planet Scuba.

Planet Scuba's open-water scuba class is a thorough scuba certification course taught by Scuba School International–certified instructors. During the class, an aqua guide will take scuba newbies through an underwater education session, which includes both old-fashioned classroom learning and sub-aquatic sessions in the Oro Valley Municipal Pool, a watery abode free of gangly grundylows and killer krakens. As students learn about basic tank and scuba gear function, buoyancy control, and diving techniques, they pave the way for future open-water certification. Today's Groupon includes SSI learning materials and a logbook, as well as a rental buoyancy compensator, regulator, computer, wetsuit, mask, fins, and snorkel.

Planet Scuba

Christopher Goodwill and Michael Makoid met while diving in the Sea of Cortez. The duo’s shared passion for scuba led them to found Planet Scuba; nowadays, they lead fellow divers on trips to the sea where they first met, as well as to Key Largo, St. Croix, and other exotic locales.

The shop arms patrons for independent dive trips as well with open-water certification courses. During 22 hours of coursework that combine classroom instruction and pool lessons, students learn basic diving techniques, such as removing the helium balloons tied to their wrists. Classes close with an optional overnight dive trip, on which students earn their certification. The gear store—which stocks equipment for snorkeling and swimming as well as diving—can equip aquatic explorers for any kind of expedition.

Staff was very friendly! Prices are competitive. Had a great experience in classroom and during certification training. Lifetime refresher courses are a great bonus! I can definitely see myself going back when I decide to expand my diving education.
