Similar to tickling a bear without losing an arm, the art of breathing underwater requires years of practice and dedication. Introduce your lungs to aqueous awareness with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get one snorkeling lesson at The Great American Diving Company, plus a scuba-quality mask and snorkel to keep (a $179 value).
Learn the basics of breathing underwater in The Great American Diving Company's discover snorkeling course, where you'll follow the instructional sonar echoes of the company's PADI-certified mermen and merwomen inside their private facility in St. Peters, a custom-built indoor pool kept at a Caribbean-like 85 degrees. Skilled instructors teach their aquaprentices how to properly prepare and adjust masks and snorkels for hours of underwater exploration, giving them front-row seats to rumbles between rival schools of fish. Grab a Groupon and view the website's calendar to see which session best fits your schedule, then call one of the retail locations to reserve your spot. Be sure to bring a swimsuit and towel.
