$179 for a Scuba-Certification Course ($399 Value)
The PADI Open Water Diver course typically runs one evening and three days with a classroom training session, pool session, and four open-water dives led by a team of trained instructors before students receive their certification. Scuba Works supplies buoyancy-compensator devices, tanks, regulators, wetsuits, and weights along with course materials. Students need to provide a mask, fins, boots, and snorkel. Equipment can be rented for $20 per day or purchased as a package for $159.
Though Scuba Works sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Based out of sunny Jupiter on the shores of the warm Gulf Stream, Scuba Works—named Best Dive Center in 2010 by CityVoter—guides aquatic adventurers on scenic diving tours. Helmed by a PADI-trained and certified diving instructor, the intrepid staff continually add to expertise with routine continuing-education courses. In addition to tours, Scuba Works offers basic and advanced open-water scuba-certification classes and stages annual productions of Jacques Cousteau's autobiographical opera, Dive In!.
