Like mastering a musical instrument, the art of breathing underwater requires years of practice and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon: $10 buys you a two-hour beginner's scuba-diving training (a $20 value) at Skin-n-Scuba in Independence.
First-time scuba divers will learn from professional, certified trainers during Skin-n-Scuba’s Discover Scuba training session. The training course includes all necessary diving gear and is conducted in the facility’s 26’x52’ indoor saltwater pool, featuring salt, water, and two sunken Spanish Armada galleons. Individual class enrollment is capped at 15 in order to maintain a reasonable instructor-to-student ratio and leave room in the pool for the dolphins enrolled in backstroke. The two-hour classes for Groupon buyers are offered Fridays (starting at 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.), Saturdays (9 a.m. and 11 a.m.), Sundays (1 p.m. and 3 p.m.) and Mondays (10 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., and 5 p.m.).
Dive-shop owner Sam Rutherford and his hydrodynamic team of professional divers, instructors, and mermaids are certified by the Professional Association of Dive Instructors. With high-quality masks, fins, and snorkels strapped in place, Skin-n-Scuba students will learn to displace water with all the calm trust that comes from knowing they are safe from attacks both inland and adlittoral.
Participants must be 10 years or older. If participant is under 18 years old, a legal guardian must sign a waiver.
