What You'll Get
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 to Tiger Shark Scuba in Arlington:
- For $175, you get a personal scuba-gear package, which includes a mask, a snorkel, boots, fins, and mouthpiece (a $274.10 value).
- For $129, you get a five-class open-water scuba-certification course (a $285 value). This course requires students to have their own mask, snorkel, fins, boots, and mouthpiece.
Tiger Shark Scuba maintains a full-service diving facility that offers complete training and outfitting for underwater explorers. The open-water scuba course is an entry-level certification course designed to impart amateur flippers with the skills to safely conduct open-water dives. Students will dip their toes into the fountain of knowledge for one day in a classroom setting and then dive into the controlled comfort of a pool for two days before graduating to two final days of open-water instruction. Learn all the basic diving dogmas, including buoyancy, correct weighting, marine conservation, equipment assembly, and proper dive planning. An included open-water certification trip will usher each student into authoritative mastery. This Groupon includes the use of major diving equipment, such as a weight-integrated buoyancy compensator, a three-gauge console, tanks, and weights, but students must provide their own personal gear. Wetsuits are recommended but are not required.
Those who opt for the equipment package (a $274.10 total value) get all the necessary gear to take to ocean floors in style, including an Oceanic ION mask and Ultra Dry mini snorkel. ScubaPro delta short boots and Viper open-heel fins help divers get their sea feet, and a mouthpiece kit prevents you from having to wait for evolution to give you your gills back. A wetsuit is not included in the equipment package.
Founder Brittney Anthony crafted Tiger Shark Scuba in 2001 as a community where divers can share stories and continue their diving education. Tiger Shark Scuba also hosts regular excursions to exotic and domestic dive locations, where students can practice their skills and explore the depths with a school of comrades.
