If foam noodles can be found floating on the surface of almost every pool, think how many perfectly salted meatballs must be at the bottom of the ocean. Discover all of the sea's sunken treats with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a half-day marine life snorkeling trip plus wet suit rental from Sea Dwellers Dive Center of Key Largo (a $50.50 value).
A PADI 5-Star Resort Center, the dutiful divers at Sea Dwellers Dive Center of Key Largo have been helping beginner snorkelers hone their natatory know-how for more than 35 years. Prospective plungers will commence their salty sojourn with easy-to-grasp snorkeling instruction in safe, shallow water before moving on to the well-tended waters of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. While each trip's particular dive site is determined by that day's weather conditions and the status of Poseidon's zoning permits, possible destinations may include the azure eddies and bustling sea life of Molasses Reef or the reverent beauty of Key Largo Dry Rocks Reef––home to a replica of Italy's famous ¬_Christ of the Abyss_ statue and colonies of brain coral, known for their grooved ridges and ability to control the market price of lobster with their thoughts.
Prepare for deepwater debuts with Sea Dweller's included wet suit rentals, which render bodies buoyant with help from aquadynamic lines. Sea Dweller's half-day excursions do not require special dive certification, allowing aspiring submergers 10 and up to immerse themselves in eye-opening undersea sights no matter their skill levels or abilities to speak porpoise.
TripAdvisors give Sea Dwellers Dive Center an average of 4.5 owl eyes:
- They're very friendly, helpful and genuinely care about their customers. If my kids decide to get certified this summer I know I'll bring them here! – DixieDiveChick
- This was also our first boat outing, & it could not have gone better. Big boat, plenty of room, even with 20 people. Bottles were clean & ready on both dives. – pixelPilot
