Breathing underwater, like eating fireworks, constructing a monument, and getting married, should only be attempted if you're confident you can do it. Today's Groupon gives you all the skills you need to mingle with the mermaids: for $22, you get admission to a Discover Scuba class at Underwater Connection, with locations in Delafield, Menomonee Falls, and Hales Corners (a $45 value).
Underwater Connection’s certified instructors share their extensive knowledge to enlighten budding divers on submarine basics during Discover Scuba classes. Each aquatic tutorial takes place in the controlled environment of a pool and hosts three to nine submerged students, who spend up to two hours learning scuba essentials, such as safety, proper equipment use, and how to ask trout for directions. Underwater Connection gussies up seaworthy scholars in all necessary diving gear, but participants should tote along their own swimsuits and towels. Click here to view the current class schedule. With today’s Groupon, customers who wish to continue their scuba training with a certification class will receive $30 off if they purchase it the day of their Discover Scuba session or can beat a humpback whale in a krill-eating competition.
At Underwater Connection, southeast Wisconsin’s only PADI five-star instructor-training center, an award-winning course director and a team of skilled instructors educate both undersea novices and emergency-service professionals in the art of scuba diving. Following safe, low-stress basic diving courses in a pool, teachers and students move to the open water to cover techniques that include rebreathing, underwater videography, and recovering toy-boat wrecks from flooded bathtubs. Underwater Connection provides all equipment for classes, relying on its factory-trained equipment mechanics and Aqualung Master Technician, who refill tanks and do in-house repairs on gear from brands such as Dive Rite, Poseidon, Oceanic, Aqua Lung, and Scubapro.
