David, the owner, is an amazing instructor with techniques to keep the class fun and relaxing. I know that at first I was a bit nervous with the gear and going under water but he made eerything fun and calm. I will definitively go back to the Scuba Gym and get my certification!

The experience was wonderful. It was my first scuba lesson and I cannot wait to go back. The teacher was very informative, patient and made the lesson fun. The facilities were excellent. I highly recommend the Scuba Gym.

Dave was AWESOME. My initial SCUBA experience has led to me wanting to introduce my wife to SCUBA and have both of us get certified. :)

What You'll Get


Breathing underwater, like eating fireworks, constructing a monument, and getting married, should only be attempted if you’re confident you can do it. Get all the skills you need to mingle with the mermaids with today’s Groupon to The Scuba Gym, valid in Orlando or on Citrus Tower Boulevard and Don Wickham Drive in Clermont. Choose between the following options:

  • For $24, you get a Try Scuba group class (a $59 value).
  • For $95, you get a Passport diving-training session (a $195 value).<p>

Each class includes: * Certified instructor * Skin gear, breathing apparatus, and air tank<p>

The Scuba Gym’s family-friendly Try Scuba lesson shepherds schools of aspiring divers ages 8 and older through two hours of underwater-breathing practice spritzed with scuba-savvy tips. After the NAUI instructor and assisting dive master divulge 45 minutes of diving safety and dos and don’ts above the water, up to six scuba students can affix fins to their land-dwelling feet, strap metal lungs to their backs, and submerge themselves in siren-free waters. Buoyant learners harpoon their newfound underwater existence by absorbing essential survival facts, such as clearing masks of fog or placating spooked seahorses. From there, up to an hour of diligently supervised aqueous amusement commences, with underwater scooter races using eight torpedo scooters and whole-body corkscrews through hula-hoop rings. Each Try Scuba class equips plunging pupils with stainless-steel air tanks, sturdy Bare apparel and Atomic flippers and breathing gear, but divers must know how to swim. Classes convene at the National Training Center’s massive Olympic pool, which is heated and allows for dives up to 12 feet deep. Though this session does not certify purchasers for unbridled scuba excursions, Groupon customers who sign up for a certification class will get a complimentary 2-milimeter wetsuit (an $85 value) for future dives and underwater-themed proms.

During the more laid-back Passport sessions, which allow novices to scuba without needing to complete a scuba-certification course, groups of up to six aspiring underwater paddlers aged 10 and older travel to one of two open-water-dive sites. Beginning swimmers ply the waters and trawl for sunken Pogs collections at Rainbow River or rehearse more advanced diving skills at Alexander Springs. Excursions pair every six students with one licensed instructor, and require up to 90 minutes travel time to the dive location. Some dives may be applicable toward scuba certification, and each class, which depends on weather conditions, includes all seaworthy skin covers and breathing gear. Students can go on dives for up to 12 months, and classes may also include wetsuits to protect bodies in the event of colder temperatures or aggressive schools of temporary tattoos.
