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 today's Groupon: for $25, you get a two-hour Discover Scuba class at Seaduction Dive Center (a $50 value).
Founded by author and former Scuba Diving magazine editor Michael Ange, Seaduction Dive Center imparts both technical and recreational scuba instruction to phalange-equipped fins of all experience levels. In the Discover Scuba class, aspiring oceanographers get their feet wet in a highly supervised two-hour aquatic adventure. Coursework takes place in a heated indoor pool, with students learning all basic scuba-diving skills and memorizing passwords to gain entrance to hidden undersea wet bars. Seaduction asks divers to bring a bathing suit, a towel, and a smile, since asking politely is the only way the ocean will let you in. All other necessary equipment is provided, including wetsuits, air tanks, and masks.
Instructors come from diverse backgrounds and include a former Navy diver, two firefighters, and an aspiring arson investigator. Seaduction's staff members are also vested with the authority to conduct local college-credit courses.
