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 $25, you get a discover scuba or snorkeling class (a $50 value) at Salem Scuba & Travel. Check the calendar for upcoming class times.
Salem Scuba has been gifting Homo sapiens the gills necessary to swim with the fish for over a quarter century. Under the close supervision of a highly experienced staff, all certified members of the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, previously land-locked students spend three hours learning the basics of breathing under water, maneuvering in the depths, and understanding proper dolphin dinner etiquette. During an informative hour in the classroom, scuba gurus seek to allay any apprehensions, teaching soon-to-be explorers subaqueous safety basics and how to tell a snorkel from a straw. The class then moves to the indoor pool for two-hours of practical lessons, where students learn scuba and snorkeling skills such as kicking techniques, adjusting tank pressure, clearing water from masks, and breathing through a regulator. Salem Scuba provides all necessary equipment apart from a swimsuit and a whale-summoning trident.
Salem Scuba takes pride in turning cold feet into competent, finned ones. Once hooked, Groupon customers can stroll over to the scuba store and choose from select snorkel, mask, and fin sets for 40% off, in order to continue practicing in the ocean, pool, or bathtub.
