Now that ice atop lakes, swamps, and backyard pools has receded, there is nothing blocking antsy underwater explorers from entering the mysterious blue beyond. Celebrate the world beneath the thaw with today's deal: for $25, you get a Discover Scuba Diving class for yourself and another diver (a $50 value) at Splash Water Sports on Banksville Road.
Courses are offered the first and third Saturday of each month and must be scheduled two weeks in advance. Prospective scubathusiasts can be as young as eight years old, though those younger than 18 must have a parent or guardian present. In addition to covering parent and child, this two-person Groupon can be used to wet the exploratory dorsal fins of a loving couple, pair of friends, or duet of dueling banjo players.
Splash Water Sports is rated five stars by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), the only center to receive such an accolade in the Pittsburgh area. A certified PADI instructor leads each sub-marina course with caring supervision and a gilled neck. In less than two hours, participants will become familiar with navigating submerged highways in a weightless, watery world. After a short period of knowledge and skills instruction, divers will go on a shallow dive in open water to go swimming in newly acquired knowledge.
Groupon buyers will need to bring a swimsuit and towel, and Splash Water Sports will provide the needed scuba equipment.
