Conquering the water is mankind's last great calling, having already wrestled the air into submission and triumphed in a victorious coin-toss with fire in the late 1800s. Rid the ocean of its smug superiority with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a 90-minute Discover Scuba class at Scuba New York in Yonkers. Training natatory novices and marine mavens in all aspects of diving, Scuba New York proffers well-rounded courses taught by experienced underwater experts. Classes are kept small to ensure optimum teacher attention and to not disturb the ill-tempered Kraken living in the shop's on-site heated pool; students will study in both classroom and pool settings. Flipper fledglings need only bring a bathing suit and towel, though if the class reawakens a childhood love of mermaid movies, Scuba New York also offers a sizeable selection of professional scuba and snorkeling gear for sale. Certain medical conditions may need doctor approval before participation. Call ahead to reserve an upcoming weekend slot.
