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 diving-certification course at Sea Stallion Scuba Outfitters in Lake Forest (a $495 value). The course includes:

  • Five open-water dives
  • Two four-hour pool sessions
  • Two four-hour classroom sessions
  • Textbooks and materials
  • Certification upon passing exam

The certified dive instructors at Sea Stallion work to grant students their underwater independence through SSI-open-water-dive-certification courses. Before donning wet suits, students attend two four-hour classroom sessions in which they’ll fiddle with equipment, master safety techniques, and differentiate between various barracuda dialects. After a sufficient amount of informative text and instructional videos, the scuba gurus then move classes to the water during two four-hour pool sessions and five open-water dives in the ocean. Students must provide their own masks, fins, snorkels, gloves and boots, which are available for purchase at Sea Stallion for an additional fee, with a discount for Groupon customers. Textbooks, materials, and all other equipment are included. SSI-certification cards surface once students ace a written test, doable by answering the questions correctly or folding the paper into a perfect origami snorkel.

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.
