For $27, today's side deal gets you a two-hour Discover Scuba lesson from Seattle Scuba Schools, a $55 value. This introductory scuba-diving lesson lets prospective merpersons experience scuba diving without the investment in a full-certification course. All the equipment is included, and instruction is set up by appointment only.
Before diving into the school's practice pool, divers learn the basics of breathing through a regulator, clearing water from a mask, and adjusting the pressure buildup during descents. After that, swimmers will become underwater explorers. Learn to dive under the watchful supervision of an experienced, PADI-certified instructor. Craig Gillespie is a pro diver with webbed feet for toes and gills for eyes. He has logged more than 30 years of dives, during which time tens of thousands of would-be flounders were taught the ways of scuba diving.
Participants must know how to swim and be at least 10 years of age; divers under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
