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: for $15, you get a PADI discover scuba-diving class at Skin-n-Scuba in Independence (a $30 value).
First-time scuba divers will learn from professional, certified trainers during Skin-n-Scuba’s discover scuba 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 practicing their backstroke. The 90-minute classes are offered Saturday at 10:30 a.m. until April 15, at which point they will be offered every Saturday at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Classes will be added to the schedule if there is demand.
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.
