What You'll Get
If foam noodles can be found floating on the surface of almost every pool, think how many perfectly salted meatballs must be at the bottom of the ocean. Discover the sea's sunken treats with today's Groupon: for $22, you get one Discover Scuba Diving Experience intro class at Pro Ski and Scuba (a $45 value), located on East Harry Street.
Pro Ski and Scuba shares the basics of breathing underwater in the two-hour Discover Scuba Diving course led by expert guides well versed in submerged safety. The controlled environment of the pool keeps things safe and simple for all involved, as instructors acquaint students with the provided dive equipment as well as aquatic dos and don'ts culled from their vast, ocean-like expanses of knowledge. Blossoming Cousteaus receive an expanded version of the Discover Scuba class including a 20-minute video introducing the basic skills that will be covered. An extended pool session gives time to practice ascents, descents, and anglerfish impressions. Though students won't be certified to dive after one class, the Discover Scuba Diving Experience course skills can be credited toward a PADI open-water certification if they decide to pursue underwater graduate degrees.
Scuba diving is a great way to experience areas of the earth human eyes rarely get to see, communicate with orca whales, and find lost keys that have been cruelly hidden inside giant clams. Pro Ski and Scuba is a PADI five-star IDC facility, one of the highest rankings for a dive shop. Classes typically take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday nights.
