Scuba diving is the only way left to find hidden treasure, befriend a nautical skeleton, or strap a huge tank to yourself. Explore the possibilities with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a Try Scuba experience at The Scuba Shack in Florence, Kentucky (a $50 value).
Professional instructors acquaint landlubbers and reward seafarers with the underwater thrill of scuba diving in a heated, indoor diver-training pool. Under the supervision of Neptune-trained water whisperers, flippered fledglings get accustomed to subaquatic navigation while operating the requisite equipment. Introductory students feel the weightlessness of flight as they cut through the water, a sensation denied to ostriches, which can neither fly nor swim. The Scuba Shack provides the essential equipment for its one-hour class, including a mask, snorkel, and prewrinkled fingers.
The Try Scuba experience introduces basic diving and can serve as a gateway to eventual scuba certification. The Scuba Shack conducts a series of individual and small-group classes that prepares students for open-water certification dives in as few as four or five sessions.
The Scuba Shack
At The Scuba Shack, the staff’s family-oriented lessons encourage divers to take social rather than solo ventures into the blue beyond. Each instructor carries an impressive résumé of underwater travels—the head trainer has been diving for more than 55 years and others have logged more than 1,000 dives. They prioritize educating their charges with safe and enjoyable teachings, rather than monotonous quizzes on whether the bends is a serious health issue or a 1980s punk band. With trips to dive sites in Fiji and Mexico, they introduce divers to the visual wonder of reefs and aquatic wildlife throughout the world.
