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 $37, you get a two-hour Discover Scuba session from ScubaVentures in Vestavia Hills, a $75 value. This class offers an opportunity to sample scuba without having to invest the time or money in a full certification course.
The two-hour lesson begins by familiarizing divers with the essential scubaquipment, with an experienced instructor demonstrating how to prepare the gear for diving. Strapped on and strapped into the tank and gear, human merpersons will practice water entry, breathing through a regulator, dealing with prehistoric trilobites, keeping the mask clear, and just flippering around the pool. Dives take place in an indoor pool in the winter and an outdoor pool in the summer. A Professional Association of Diving Instructors–certified dive school and a member of National Instructors Association of Divers with Disabilities, ScubaVentures caters to the needs and goals of all divers.
While this class won't result in certification to dive alone or even with a crime-fighting seal partner, participants will at least feel safer around large puddles. For those looking to do more than dip their toes in the underwater world, ScubaVentures also provides full open-water certification programs.
Divers must be at least 11 years old, and customers must sign a waiver. Call ahead to schedule a class.
