I live in Tampa and have been looking for a great PADI certification center. Saw this on Groupon and talked to Rich and Mike about their program at Scuba West. Liked what I heard. I researched several other centers around town. This facility is a 50 minute drive from my house but well worth the trip. One of the best decisions I made in my life. Jeff the owner is great, my instructor Nickol is awesome, and everyone else that works there; are the friendliest people you will ever meet. The actual training is incredible and outstanding. The dive training area that is next to the center is great. I was in the military and worked one of the largest training facilities, for my service component. When you have a training area, it is for “training”. It is to help you with various conditions, so you are trained to the best of your ability. It is a great area to dive and will give you the confidence to dive in pretty much most locations (after your train/dive there). After I got my certification, I felt very comfortable to dive in most conditions, other than just crystal blue waters that are warm... like the Moldova Islands. I was told if you train in the Hudson Grotto and feel comfortable, you can dive anywhere, and I believe this to be true. If you truly want to dive, get certified, have fun, dive in a great training facility, get trained by experienced/outstanding trainers, meet friendly people, meet friendly animals in the Grotto; and will make you feel like you can dive to the greatest extent of your PADI certification experience (anywhere). Then get this Groupon. You will not regret it. This is my question to anyone reading this... Do you remember the first time you are a piece of chocolate? Probably not...we were all pretty young, but I am sure your eyes were wide open and you were exhilarated. It was such an incredible experience, making you want more. Want to have that feeling again? Get this Groupon....take this course. Mark this "Best of Groupon Deals".

What You'll Get

Scuba diving is the only way left to find hidden treasure, befriend a nautical skeleton, or strap a huge tank to yourself. Explore the possibilities with today's Groupon: for $149, you get a scuba-diving certification course at Scuba West in Hudson (a $329.95 value). The four-day course is held Thursday and Friday evenings and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Scuba West's experienced staff helps visitors develop their sea legs through the open-water diver certification course, which teaches pupils how to safely navigate aqueous avenues. Although participants must bring their own towels, bathing suits and Koi pocket translators, Scuba West provides all the underwater gear before non-gilled guests dip their little piggies. Throughout the course, a licensed PADI instructor imparts aquatic knowledge through classroom instruction, hones diving techniques in the heated pool, and supervises open-water dives in Scuba West's private 100-foot-deep Hudson Grotto. Class sizes are typically around five to six people, and all lessons are held on a 2.5-acre campus. Once students have completed enough coursework and in-water training, they receive a license and certification logbook, allowing them to take off their flipper training wheels and explore bodies of water without a divemaster chaperone.
