Outside of cooking gourmet fish-food or taking one's fish bowl to a Padres game for some quality father-carp time, scuba diving is the best way to bond with a pet goldfish. Become better friends with your pet with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a two- to three-hour introductory scuba diving lesson (a $79 value) at Rick's Diving Locker, located in Escondido.
A PADI five-star training facility owned and operated by a scuba instructor with more than 2,500 open-water dives, Rick's Diving Locker imparts aquatic amateurs and underwater experts alike with scuba-diving knowhow. Each introductory class trains landfarers in the use of scuba equipment, techniques, and safety procedures. By maintaining a cap of no more than eight students per class, courses at Rick's Diving Locker provides participants with the instructor's complete attention so they can ask questions about the evolution of scuba as a sport and what to do if a manatee tries to sell them counterfeit sunglasses. Sessions finish with in-water trial time using actual scuba gear in the diving pool, and each class provides students with all of the necessary equipment. Throughout the year, the staff of marine masters offers an array of courses and diving excursions. After participating in the Discover Scuba course, students can go on to take more advanced classes or persistently paddle toward their complete diving certification.
