What You'll Get
Similar to tickling a bear without losing an arm, the art of breathing underwater requires years of practice and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get an Intro Discover Scuba program at Scuba Schools of America, located in Montclair (a $50 value). If you continue from Discover Scuba to the Open-Water Diver Program, they'll take $50 off the course tuition (regularly $350). Make sure to bring your own bathing suit and towel.
For more than 40 years, the affable staff at Scuba Schools of America has trained landlubbers in the benefits of breathing below sea level. Today's Groupon is perfect for the budding plunger in your family or circle of friends. All necessary equipment is included in the roughly three-hour Intro Discover Scuba program, during which a veteran diver will take you from their classroom to the warm saltwater pool to teach you about the basics of the dive, responsible barnacle removal, and the hubris of 19th-century oxygen barons. The practiced instructors come willing to help and open to questions, making the course a welcoming aquatic environment for amateurs.
If you're taken by the marine itch, Scuba Schools of America will take $50 off the more in-depth Open-Water Diver course. Use your emerging submergence skills to deepen your dive, laugh at overstuffed clownfish cars, and supply Bruce Springsteen with stories about forgotten working-class mermaid townships.
