With humankind just recently mastering the art of breathing aboveground, it has now turned its attention toward breathing while underwater, in outer space, and facedown in an anthill. Pioneer this new frontier of lung-work with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a Discover Scuba Diving class from Sterling Silver Scuba (a $49 value) in Sterling.
Sterling Silver Scuba spreads the siren call of scuba diving to students with a number of classes. With the Discover Scuba Diving class, terrainistas will be introduced to the thrill of scuba diving through basic instruction and preliminary access to scuba equipment. Under the supervision of a certified member of the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, students will experience the feeling of submerged serenity in shallow water, with scuba equipment strapped on to fully demonstrate what breathing underwater feels like.
Though the Discover Scuba Diving course isn't itself valid for scuba certification, its teachings can be put toward later classes that do offer diving certifications, whereas its sea shanties can be put toward winning the hearts of crusty sea salts at waterfront bars. Sterling Silver Scuba's certified staff brings years of aboveground and below-water experience to the Discover Scuba Diving course, and its training facility provides for scuba-diving training with only minimal chance of piranha attack.
Class participants must be at least 10 years old.
