What You'll Get
Exploring the underwater realm is a welcome respite from everyday dangers such as breathing in pollution, falling victim to crime, and spontaneously catching on fire. Enjoy the extinguishing escape of water with today's Groupon: for $187, you get a PADI open-water-certification class at Strictly Scuba in Carson City (up to a $398 value).
Strictly Scuba has prepared plunge-ready pupils for the underwater environs of Lake Tahoe since 1992, employing certified divers and enthusiastic marine mavericks to teach the terminology, skills, and safety techniques required for scuba diving. The PADI-certification process begins in the classroom, introducing developing divers to fundamentals such as breathing techniques and safety procedures. Aspiring aquatic adventurers first apply their knowledge in the practice pool, where they’ll don diving gear and dodge pool noodles pretending to be eels. Water-ready wanderers then board a boat bound for Lake Tahoe for four instructor-led open-water dives. From popular dive spots Sand Harbor, Cave Rock, and Hurricane Bay, nautical navigators submerge below the mysterious surface and wander around the crystal-clear water and clam-run necklace shops of Tahoe’s depths.
Strictly Scuba's PADI-certification course includes an Open Water Instructional Crew Pak, consisting of an instruction manual, DVD, diver's log book, and electric dive planner. All classes are led by certified instructors who will answer any questions, ensure safety, and teach each student the secrets to being socially accepted by a school of bluefins. This deal requires customers to bring their own mask, snorkel, fins, gloves, and booties.
