Before the invention of scuba tanks, deep divers were forced to suck the air of giant clams' floating bubbles, which could also be swallowed, turned into pearls, and strewn about the necks of vacuuming housewives. Celebrate progress with today's Groupon: for $69, you get a Discover Scuba class at Scuba Works in Jupiter (a $149 value).
Chosen by CityVoters as 2010's Best Dive Center in the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast, Scuba Works schools gill-less Floridians in the basics of underwater breathing. In the Discover Scuba program, those on the fence about carousing in the briny deep can try out their sea legs in a controlled environment, free from the perils of rabid seahorses. Led by competent divemasters, students will be outfitted with the proper equipment and will spend the next 90 minutes or so developing their skills and learning everything they need to jumpstart a career as a wet-suit purveyor. Groupon holders can also use the value of today's deal toward scuba certification, should they choose to continue their path toward moray mastery beyond the introductory class.
CityVoters named Scuba Works Best Dive Center in the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast in 2010:
- Best dive shop in WPB by far. No other shop takes care of you the way these guys do. – Nora P.
