Somewhere far below sea level, the most fashionable critters in the subsurface world are gracefully strutting their stuff in form-fitting wetsuits with foot-flattering flippers. Grace the coveted underwater runways of exploration with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $20 for a three-hour Discover Scuba Diving class (a $50 value)<p>
During the Discover Scuba Diving class, students learn the basics of diving within a classroom setting and then take the plunge into a nearby pool. There, divers maneuver through submerged terrain and learn to breathe underwater with the ease of a yoga teacher’s fish.
- $99 for an Open Water Diver certification class, which includes classroom time and confined dives (a $300 value)<p>
For open-water certification, students can take the course on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for three weeks, or opt for an accelerated three-day session on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Instructors cover fundamentals in the classroom and then lead confined dives in the pool. Divers need to complete open-water dives to finish their certification (not included with this Groupon). These can be performed through Sea the World Scuba Center at a nearby quarry or anywhere that follows the PADI curriculum.<p>
