Breathing underwater, like eating fireworks, constructing a monument, and getting married, should only be attempted if you're confident you can do it. Today's Groupon gives you all the skills you need to mingle with the mermaids: for $199, you get a scuba-diving-certification course including certification fee at Sea Stallion Scuba Outfitters in Lake Forest (a $435 value). Today's Groupon does not include a mask, fin, snorkel, gloves, and boots, which must be brought from home or purchased from Sea Stallion at a base price of $225.
Sea Stallion Scuba Outfitters' certified instructors teach students how to safely gallivant through aquatic avenues during the open-water certification course. The journey to scuba-diving certification begins on land with two four-hour classroom sessions, during which pupils learn about essential scuba equipment, diving techniques, and the elements they may encounter on a dive––such as water. Aquanauts then take newfound knowledge into the facility's pool for two four-hour diving dress rehearsals before venturing into the sea for five instructor-assisted open-water dives.
Upon completion of a written test, each student will receive an SSI-diver-certification card recognized around the globe and in some of the classier parts of Venus. Students who purchase complete diving systems prior to completing the training will receive an additional discount on the course. Consult the online calendar for class schedules.
Sea Stallion Scuba Outfitters
Some of Sea Stallion Scuba Outfitters's certified dive instructors fell in love with the ocean after moving to the West Coast from landlocked states, and others caught the diving bug on Caribbean vacations. But no matter how they came to love the sport, all of the instructors translate their passion into superior tutelage to help students earn their underwater independence through SSI-open-water-dive courses from beginner to instructor levels. These same staffers exercise their expertise to sell diving, snorkeling, and underwater-photography equipment from top industry brands, in addition to tweaking existing gadgets to ensure safe below-surface adventures. Though based in the Pacific Ocean, Sea Stallion encourages sea-hopping with yearly excursions to exotic locales, such as the Bahamas, Indonesia, the Philippines, and the recently discovered Eighth Sea.
