What You'll Get
Scuba divers are the astronauts of the sea and the grand masters of underwater chess. Discover a world of unknown pelagic pleasures with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a Discover Scuba Diving lesson at SPE Dive School (a $50 value) in Chevy Chase. You'll need to bring your own bathing suit, towel, good health, and at least 12 years of experience being alive. You might also want to bring some friends, because despite Sebastian the crab's smug platitudes, it's lonelier under the sea than on land. Classes will be held at 10 a.m. on January 23, March 27, May 22, July 24, August 21, and October 30.
The Discover Scuba Diving experience is a three-hour introduction to scuba. You’ll get attention from an expert scuba instructor who will teach you safety tips, diving techniques, and equipment-handling skills. Unlike scuba equipment shops that also offer lessons, SPE Dive School is solely devoted to teaching. Take your class on a Sunday morning and learn what it's like to breathe underwater.
If you’re planning an island vacation or a summer honeymoon, join the Discover Scuba Diving experience to prepare. If you’re not planning an exotic getaway anytime soon, you’ll still find SPE’s classes useful, because D.C. is surprisingly packed with great dive zones. At the fountain by the World War II Memorial, you can dive and hunt for tourists’ wishes. At the Great Farm Preserves Factory, you can test your regulator while buried in a warm vat of strawberry jelly. But these dangerous dives are not for the scuba rookie, so get this Groupon and let the under-jelly adventure begin.
- SPE Dive School made learning how to scuba dive in the D.C. area so easy and enjoyable! I got my scuba classwork and pool training from SPE in May of 2009 and went on one of their Grand Cayman certification trips a couple weeks later. I could not have been happier. – Jeremy W., Yelp
