If foam noodles can be found floating on the surface of almost every pool, think how many perfectly salted meatballs must be at the bottom of the ocean. Discover the sea's sunken treats with today's Groupon: for $12, you get an intro to scuba class at Ski Scuba Center (a $25 value).
An SSI-certified Diver Diamond hub, Ski Scuba Center helps students to navigate the great blue through courses helmed by instructors with more than 20 years of diving experience. A monthly schedule of three-hour Try Scuba classes introduces greenhorns to the underwater sport. Pupils gather in a classroom to study scuba fundamentals and treasure hunting ethics before they amble to the on-site pool to practice breathing under water under the direct supervision of trainers. Graduates can factor the brief lesson into their journey for a complete a full-certification course or simply use the basic skills to rescue discarded movie scripts from koi ponds.
Ski Scuba Center
Ski Scuba Center is an aquatic activity hub where undersea sojourners purchase gear and learn to reach new oceanic depths. With more than 50 years of diving experience among them, instructors prepare flippered feet to scuba, swim, and lifeguard, edifying water-goers and offering certification during private and group classes. The Center also sends its snorkel constituents to Florida and the Caribbean on scuba trips and presents a number of tips on equipment-servicing treatments, such as filling tanks with air and feeding sugar cubes to well-behaved goggles.
