With the exception of riding stomach-down on skateboards or superhero-flying through the galaxy, humans rarely get the chance to travel horizontally while remaining horizontal themselves. Advance without being upright with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an introductory scuba-diving course from the Diving Locker (a $75 value).

With an array of scuba-diving courses, the Diving Locker grants aquatic ability to Vancouver residents no longer in possession of the gills they inherited from their great-great-grand-merfathers. This Groupon is good for the Diving Locker's Discover Scuba introductory course. In Discover Scuba, newcomers to Neptune's nest will learn the basics of scuba diving, first with a classroom session and then with an hour of instruction in a pool. Taught by an instructor with certification from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, your introductory course includes all the scuba-diving equipment you'll need, with the exception of underwater spy lasers. Discover Scuba runs simultaneously with Open Water Module 1 classes on the Diving Locker's calendar, giving students flexibility in when they'd like to discover the submerged serenity known only to shipwrecks and practitioners of "shark yoga."

The material covered in Discover Scuba is the same material covered in the first evening of the Diving Locker's Open Water Diver course, so divers wishing to pursue further air-tank-assisted sojourns in the sea can continue studies at the Diving Locker without needing to repeat basic instruction.

New students only. Students must be at least 10 years old. A medical questionnaire must be filled out prior to the lesson.

Diving Locker

Among Diving Locker's group of seasoned and certified underwater experts, accomplishments include inspecting Australia's Great Barrier Reef up close, swimming with fish in the blue waters of Guam, and spending more than 40 years helping snorkelers choose the right fins. Diving Locker's staff of instructors combine their wealth of collective experience to provide students with technical education—such as PADI certifications and search-and-recovery training—and to impart their genuine love for the fruits of globe-trekking. In addition to being a hub for scuba equipment sales and instruction, the business' audacious employees also organize and lead diving jaunts around the world and to a number of local underwater destinations on weekends. Diving Locker has been in operation since the late 1960s and has been operated since 1972 by Greg Kocher, the facility's resident equipment guru and mermaid interpreter.
