What You'll Get
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 to Tropical Adventures Scuba and Travel. Choose between the following options:
- For $25, you get a one-hour introductory Discover Scuba class (a $65 value).
- For $199, you get a Scuba Certification course (a $449 value). <p>
The PADI- and NAUI-certified instructors of Tropical Adventures Scuba and Travel guide students through underwater terrains in introductory trial classes and comprehensive scuba-certification-training courses. Experienced instructors introduce basic techniques in a one-hour Discover Scuba course, keeping close watch on fledgling divers as they sample submerged breathing within the security of a pool. Students will gain a grasp of basic techniques with all necessary equipment provided.
Alternatively, students can pursue an official scuba certification with a comprehensive course comprising three classroom sessions, three pool sessions, and a weekend of ocean open-water diving. After conquering curriculums, students can join other certified sinkers and professional instructors on one of the school’s weekly supervised ocean dives. The school provides all the necessary equipment for the certification course and initial ocean dive, saving students the chore of harvesting extra oxygen during bubble baths.

The crew also recommends new and used gear for purchase or rental, including Oceanic booties, Tusa masks, and radar equipment that helps divers avoid traveling mermaid salesmen.
