What You'll Get
Oceans are the earth's final frontier, holding thousands of uncategorized species of fish and one plastic bag filled with loose doll hairs. Uncover the mysteries of the deep with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $199 for a NAUI diver-certification course (a $399 value)
- $349 for a Beginning open water course and advanced NAUI open-water course (a $699 value)
- $199 for $400 worth of Scuba Dollars to apply toward courses
Students receive a NAUI certification after five open-water dives at a NAUI pro-platinum facility that plunge students to up to 60 feet underwater. Certifications are internationally recognized and valid for a lifetime. Private Scuba offers flexible scheduling and free lifetime refresher courses. Once certified, divers can explore the mysteries of the deep unsupervised, navigating through oil-rig pillars and reef formations in search of the unknown. Advanced open-water courses build on the learning of the beginner certification course, teaching navigation, night diving, low-visibility, and deep-diving skills during a minimum of six dives. Scuba Dollars may be applied toward group certification courses such as rescue diver, master scuba diver, or semi-private specialty classes covering topics such as night diving, deep diving, buoyancy, Nitrox, CPR/AED, first aid and oxygen provider.
Customers must supply their own mask, fins, snorkel, and booties or purchase onsite at a 10% student discount. Please wait until after first class.

About Private Scuba
NAUI instructor trainer Becky Anderson has explored the ocean blue from the lingering surf of Southern California to the crystalline fresh water-caves in the Yucatan. Becky and Private Scuba's NAUI pro-platinum aquatic faculty share essential safety and technical skills with listening ears through NAUI courses and nitrox-based instruction for divers who want to explore deeper waters or move to Atlantis. The diving team builds foundations in beginning students and heightens skills for advanced students in hands-on classes. Private scuba instructors maintain a perfect safety record, tailoring programs to meet each participant's individual goals. After mastering the basics, students can achieve certification in dive classes, making use of the facilities at Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, or learn the intricacies of rescue scuba diving to retrieve lost kittens stuck atop exposed coral reefs.
