Similar to tickling a bear without losing an arm, the art of breathing underwater requires years of practice and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get a three-hour introductory Try Scuba class (a $25 value) at Ski Scuba Center.
Fit for fin-frolickers as young as 10 years old, the Try Scuba class provides three fully soaked hours of hands-on, tanks-on fun and fundamental training in the on-site heated pool. Submerged aside veteran instructors with more than 50 years of combined experience, students satiate their thirst for underwater inhabitance while learning how to dive down, breathe in, and soak up newfound weightless sensations. Families can learn together, friends can bond together, and coworkers can discuss mundane protocols through the muffled warble of watered-down discussion. Currently classes are scheduled on the third Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and on certain weeknights from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with 2.5 hours dedicated to instruction and 30 minutes left to the students to apply their newfound skills in the pool.
All of Ski Scuba Center's instructors are certified experts in the Diver Diamond methodology, allowing students with future certification interests to plant firm, confident, and technically sound footing into the liquid foundation of learning scuba. Aside from swimsuits, all equipment is provided, so don't worry about bringing a garden hose or an Atlantic Ocean.
