Sterling Silver Scuba  - Potomac: $20 for a Discover Scuba Diving Class from Sterling Silver Scuba

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.

Nautilus Aquatics

Nautilus Aquatics was born from the union of Sterling Silver Scuba and Adventure Scuba Company, resulting in an underwater outfitter that offers the best of both scuba companies. The word that best describes Nautilus Aquatics' instructors is passion. Through countless hours of live dives and courses, they've become experts, and they share their knowledge during regular PADI classes. From specialized lessons on search and recovery or underwater naturalism to master diver or digital underwater photography, the classes prepare students for every aspect of open water exploration. Nautilus Aquatics also reinforces the basics by offering snorkel programs as well as swimming programs for kids as young as 6 months and adults of all ages.

Great great great place. I had never heard of this place before and saw the groupon and thought it looked like a good Christmas present for my sister. Got one for her and me to do together, we had an amazing time. Instructors were super friendly and knowledgeable, I had never done anything like this before not even snorkeling, learned a lot and got a chance to swim around for a while with the gear after we were taught everything, at the end of the class I felt very comfortable with my skills and what I had learned. No too expensive, fun classes for all levels, overall a wonderful experience!
